Fetch my coffee Margie

new guy in officeMy first job working in an office offered a curious lesson the very first morning.

My mentor was a 70 something man with permanent smile who seemed amused that I had made it into the office but he obeyed orders and did his best to show me the ropes.

To get started, he introduced me to Margie, who served all the men in that office as their gopher, secretary, whatever was needed. So my first morning, he insisted, “Tell Margie to fetch you some coffee.”

Reflections from serving you

This past couple weeks have brought back some fun memories for me. I’ve been working in the public again. In this case, seeing a new face in front of me about every 60 seconds for 4-5 hours straight while I scanned and bagged their groceries. It makes the average person laugh to learn how much I care when it comes to serving others, but what the hell, I like making people laugh too and I’m not the only one like this.
