Man I was stuck between a rock and hard place today. So this guy I was checking out whispered and said the bagger is drooling on his groceries. She is a little autistic I think and drools sometimes. I didn't know what to do....didn't want to shame the girl in front of everyone but didn't want drool on the people's stuff either. The bagger realized she was getting talked about I think....she wiped her lips every so often. I never been in that situation.
They hired someone that drools? WTF.
Haha. Um.....we have a few autistic baggers......one drools, one says stuff inappropriately, one can't remember anything, etc. But we're all human and need jobs so. All God's children
I thought there was so much competition for jobs that people with disabilities would almost never find work. Well, unless the company is forced to hire them.
Idk.....that same bagger's mom came in the other day saying her daughter needs exactly 20hrs a week or something. Nice people just not that productive or as productive.
It was just awkward hearing the guy say hey she's drooling on my groceries its like damn what do I say lol. Then they were staring at her making sure it doesn't drip more. I was........ugh. Can't embarrassed this girl but what about the customers. She was good the rest of the time wiping her lip and stuff. Awkward.
I was thinking about trying to get some kind of a job but this is kind of like the problem I have.
I have chronic dandruff that never really goes away. Some days it's worse than others but it does what it wants to and there's nothing I can do about it. Dandruff shampoo does nothing. In fact, it seems to make it worse.
So on a given day I will go and look in the mirror and see that I have flakes all over my shirt and in my eyebrows and even on my face. And I have black, thick eyebrows so it really stands out.
And I always think to myself "What if I had a job right now?". I mean, who is going to employ me like that? There's no way I can work around food with flakes coming off of every inch of my head. Most companies would not want someone in a public, visible position with this problem.
And most of the jobs I could maybe get that are not so public are jobs I can't do and am not qualified for. And I still don't know that it wouldn't be an issue. Most jobs just by default include some kind of customer service or interaction with people the company is trying to impress.
I mean I have worked in food service and those people will complain when everything is perfect. I can't even imagine handing someone their food with flakes raining out of my eyebrows.
