Stumble to a photo finish…

Today was my first day back on duty since last week. As such, there was a bit of rustiness getting back in the saddle. For all I’m a bright, capable adult, I’m still new at this whole “cashiering” thing, so being gone for a couple days certainly caused some memory loss. Thankfully, this didn’t last too long and I was soon back on track, busting customers through like nobody’s business. Speaking as a retail nerd, there are few things that I find more invigorating than getting huge transactions through quickly. At the Boot we call that “ease and speed”, in the real world I think it’s called consideration. Who hasn’t been to a store and thought at least once, “Seriously, dude, pick up the pace.” Wrapping up a day that was up and down and all around by ringing in a huge order in under 10 minutes. Well, it’s the kind of thing that makes me love retail.
