I got up early got dressed and was off to work. Suprisingly the cashier was already sitted. On her sit just at the entrance, surrounded by a double tempered glass.
Cashier: smiling# ashley
Me: you are always early right?
Me: great cos i’d like to be seeing those wonderful smiles everymorning.
Ashley: hahah am sure you will
Me: so what am i supposed to be doing.
Ashley: trust me you would want to rest a bit first.
Me: uhmm am ready
Ashley: oook lets go then
we walked to the part of the store that seemed like a storage room. But there were lots of big bags properly arranged, flour, rice, soya etc.
Me: what am i supposed to do here?
Ashley: you’d have to take some of this to the stand over there and your gonna be helping the customers, to carry there items to there car or to the cab.
Me: ok and??
Ashley: thats all for now she said smiling.
Me: ok thanks for the tips
Ashley: you owe me one she said winking.
Well judging from ashleys explanation, its gonna be quite easy. I thought as i tried carrying a bag of flour. After i few trial it was finally in my arms but it was pretty heavy. I couldnt hold it for long, i dropped it quickly and went back to ashley, but customers were already everywhere..
Me: ooh my God. I watched as ashley introduced me to the customers.
Ashley: thats nattan over there, he’d help you with your items, do have a wonderful shopping.
Just then i heard a voice, a feminine voice precisely.
Lady: you are nattan right?
Me: smiling yes ma’am looking at her blonde hair and blue eyes lady.
Lady: could you help me with those? She said pointing at her two hug brown paper bags.
Me; smiling# my pleasure ma’am. I said grabbing the bags in both arm and walked to her car.
Lady: ooh dear to the trunk plss. I put it in the trunk and i could see glad smiles on her face.
Me: feel free to stop by next time.
Lady: ofcourse i will, she handed 20bucks over to me.
Me: uhmm actually my service to you is free as you are our customer.
Lady: i know that, its just thank you.
Me: smiling# ok i said collecting the money, you are always welcome. She smiled and drove off.
Ashley: nate!!! You’ve been attending to just on customer for so long. You have to hurry, there lots of customer to attend to.
I quickly rushed in still smiling helping others as fast as i could, talking pretty fast too and soon i was done for the day.
Me: aaaaaahhhh i felt my body crying like it was tortured.
Ashley: hahhaha whats wrong.
Me: siting close to her, smiling am dying ashley.
Ashley: hahah ok maybe i should help you relax a bit, she moved behind me, massaging my shoulders softly.
Me: closing my eyes arrrhh, hmmm this feels so good.
Ashley: dont worry its your first day, you’d get used to it soon.
Me; i’ll never be used to it ashley i said groaning. Have got to go.
Ashley: alright nate see ya!
I walked slowly and finally got home, as i bent forward like someone who has broken a rib.
Dad: nate whats wrong??
Me: smiling# work! I said walking pass him when i ran in nicholas who gave me a hard hug.
Me: ooouch!!! Dont do that. I got to my room and collapsed on my bed.
Nicholas: dad whats wrong with him.

Nicholas: hahaha you guys are acting weird but have got a date, am outta here.
