Tonight at work I ended up going between gaming, well mostly Nintendo because we actually received Wii's in stock. Oh...yes please everyone rush to our store on Wed morning because I only sold 6 of them..and we have about 9 left.
I ended up helping in computers for a while because I was walking by twice and there were people looking at Apple computers so I stopped and helped both of them. Ended up selling 2 Apples tonight :) That was fun! Then on my way back from my 2nd time of Apple I stopped to talk to a couple playing Mario Kart and they were like, no someone told us already you don't have Wii's. And I was like..uhh YES we do have Wii's. They are right down there. The lady ran down the aisle, and it cracked me up. So then I apologized and told them I had actually had announced it on the walkie talkie a few times but obviously everyone was ignoring me. So I ended up talking to the couple for 1/2 hour or so and then once again announced that YES we do have Wii's so please make sure you don't tell the customers the wrong info. Then I ended up helping 3 other customers lookinng for Wii's. I thought my throat was going to start hurting but I just ended up being thirsty. It was pretty fun and I'm hoping everyone is informed.
In between I had a customer looking for Rock Band for his Playstation 2, but could only find the drum kit separate, but no game on its own. So I went in back and opened a box that was off the truck of the full PS2 Rock Band and took him one. Made his night. Plus PS2 Rock Band is on sale for $99 so it's a bargain :)
I stayed later then I was scheduled to open all the boxes from the shipment that had come in. It was a decent truck night. Opened all but 4 boxes and sorted them into carts so in the morning they just have to drive the cart to the section and put things away. Even unloaded the 3 yellow totes we had of games onto a cart so they can be put away.
I was about to clock out and the manager came over and asked how many days I was working this week so I told him and he said he had heard I was looking for more hours and asked if I was interested in coming in possibly on Thursday for a few hours to be a CA. A CA is a Customer Assistant who helps in any department that needs help. So it's pretty neat that he recognizes that I am willing to help in different departments plus he said he'd try to get me scheduled in Computers a bit. I asked him if I could be trained a bit in Appliances since it's one department I'm not thrilled about assisting in if they are shorthanded since I don't know anything about appliances and the way they ring them up, etc. So he's going to try to get me some training time there. YAY.
It's been a fun night.
Oh and I'm listening to Durable Goods on audiobook on my iPod. The reader is the same reader from another book that had the main character being a child. And I am still trying to remember it!
