Super Receptionist was sniffling yesterday.
Don’t come in here sick tomorrow. I told her, mentally calculating my own sick days and knowing I didn’t have enough to cover catching her cold.
So Super Receptionist is OUT for the day and Slightly Less Super Receptionist is IN.
I am not, by nature, a good receptionist. I tend to get lost in my own head or hyper-focused on the task in front of me.
Tuning out other people and ignoring your surroundings while deep in thought are not desirable qualities for this particular position.
I’m getting better at it though.
I don’t know why you don’t believe me.
