I had my first real ten minutes of fame today. Let me share. I was in training when a group of young people came wandering into our classroom looking for their orientation program. Being the helpful person I am, and having just sat through the lesson about guiding people to their destinations, I jumped up to show them the right room.
A sweet young girl from Florida looked at me and said.....I'm getting goosebumps here...."Are you Judy from the internet?" She had been following my blog. My blog! I met a fan. We only talked briefly and went our separate ways, but she will be working in the same part of the park with me, so maybe I can talk her into a picture when we meet again.
The price of autographs just went up. Get them while they're cheap.
Pictures for the day.
Just a few of my elk friends strolling past the hotel.
The hotel bison having an evening stroll through the parking lot.
On the training front, we finally got to work on the computers. We're learning to register guests and how to handle complaints. After looking at their computer system, I can see why there might be problems. The squirrel turning the wheel is getting old.
Things I've learned so far.
1. There are annoying people everywhere.
2. Adjustment is like kidney stones. Eventually it passes.
3. Strangers are future friends.
4. I will enjoy my stay because it's too far to drive home.
5. Don't tease the bison.
6. No matter what they say about this job, it's minimum wage.
That's all for tonight. I've spent hours trying to get this posted, but since you are important to me, I'm making the sacrifice. I now have to walk in the dark to the hotel. If I trip over a bison, it's been great knowing you all.
