Tried Stepping Out of my Comfort Zone
And I got totally snubbed and embarrassed. Yay. Fun.
I got this new job at a fancy restaurant as an admin/receptionist. My first day was a couple days ago. My new boss is a little kooky, but quite nice. He was patient training me that morning so I'm thinking to myself, "This isn't so bad! i can do this!" Then he tells me he has to leave to run errands, so he just leaves me in the restaurant all by myself. Okay, I'm starting to get a bit anxious.
A few minutes later the chefs start coming in. I'm thinking to myself that they probably don't know that I'm in the office I should go out to the kitchen and at least say hello. ANXIETY! So I take a deep breathe and walk into the kitchen and say hello and introduce myself. And then..... NOTHING. They just stood there looking at me like I was an alien or something. One woman even kinda glared at me. I was so embarrassed. I mumbled something incoherent and left the kitchen. I was so mortified I forgot to clock out for the day. On top of that, the owner never came back and I had to shamefully walk through the kitchen to leave. Ugh.
My next day to work is Friday. I'm so freaked out I'm considering lying and telling the owner that I'm accepting another job offer and not going back there at all.
Just wondering how anyone else would have handled the situation?? Help! I've been losing sleep over this!
