New Job - First Day

Work: The new job went pretty well, the first day. The telephones weren't all that hairy, and they probably would have been less hairy if I had not needed to constantly look up extensions.

The previous receptionist used to be blind, which may be why they put the in-out board in a place where it can't be easily seen from the switchboard console. I don't know how Sharon kept track of everyone's comings and goings. She sat with me for the first half of the day, and after that, I was pretty much on my own and able to handle it, as we didn't get too many weird calls. I'm gradually learning what sorts of questions I need to ask callers and what I need to screen for, so I hope to learn this job pretty quickly.

I have Internet access but haven't dared use it for anything personal, as that was a big no-no at my last state job; could get you fired. I'd like to keep this job. LJ and email will just have to wait until I get home, unless I find out any differently.

The bus ride is not too bad, either. I catch my bus home at 5:15 and catch my transfer home at 6:10, so the entire trip is about an hour and 15 minutes. Not bad, and somewhat better than I expected.

From iswari's journal:

You scored 22 Mass, 17 Electronegativity, 80 Metal, and 0 Radioactivity!

Oooohaaaaah.... shiny! You probably have an incredibly stable and
well-maintained group of friends... that probably also don't get out
much either. You're not one to get bogged down by a problem. Of course,
I'm basing this upon Chromium's ultra-low water-exchange constant and
its corrosion-resistant properties, and I wouldn't be too surprised if
the analogy doesn't even apply.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 7% on Mass
You scored higher than 15% on Electroneg
You scored higher than 92% on Metal
You scored higher than 1% on Radioactivity
