So I am sitting at reception this afternoon – should be relatively easy. Besides the Director and myself the office is empty. Everybody else is at a Stork Party. I don’t know the girl so I volunteered to act as receptionist so that the receptionist could go.
At least I only need to know how to transfer to one person so I can’t really get confused.
When I first started working I did a lot of temp jobs. I was in London and took what ever I could get until I landed a job as a receptionist! As a job it sucks (or at least I suck at it) and I take my hat off to anybody who can do it successfully and still remain polite and smile.
After a very unsuccessful stint as receptionist in London I said NEVER EVER again. When ever I went to a temp agency looking for work I only had 2 criterea. It must not be reception and must in now way be related to anything medical (but that is a whole different story).
Thankfully today is going better – I am getting supplied with cupcakes and snacks so all is good!
