Fourth Day of Work

Sooooo.. Today was the fourth day of work… Today was a very weird day. It was very bad, then it was very good. Ahhhhh, weird day!

So this morning before I went to work my vision started to get a little blurry. I didn’t know why. Sometimes when that happens it means I might get sick. But it was my fourth day of work and I couldn’t be sick. So I took a headache pill just in case the blurry vision gave me a headache and I went to work. Walking to work was fine and when I first got there I was fine.

Then I started to work. I started to make beds and clean bathrooms and I began to get dizzy. More and more dizzy. Then I heard I was going to do a whole hallways of rooms by myself today! Yay, thats so exciting! (In case you are wondering, I am a housekeeper at a hotel). So I was excited and a bit nervous. I started to do my first room.. As I was making the bed I started to get even more dizzy.. Then the dizziness turned into feeling like I am going to puke… Next thing you know I am on the phone with my mom, in a hotel room bathroom, leaning in front of the (stranger used) toilet, 90% sure I am going to puke.

Fu..dge.. I was on the bathroom floor for 20 minutes almost crying to my mom on the phone. Some co-worker even walked in during that time but just thought I was cleaning the bathroom, so that’s good. Finally I went to the lady in charge, who is at the front desk and I told her I felt nauseous and asked if they had any Gravol. She was nice and just told me to sit down. I was soooo nervous about talking to her. I didn’t want her to be mad at me, or unimpressed. I was freaking out about telling her, but it was ok. I chose to ask if they had Gravol instead of just saying I felt sick cause that sounds more like I wanna get better and keep working, instead of sounding like I wanna go home. And I didn’t wanna go home, I wanted to finish my rooms.

Finally, after this like 40 minutes of complete terror and sickness I found Gravol in my purse and started to feel better. Gosh, thank you Lord that I started to feel better. I would have been mortified if I had to leave. Especially since at the beginning of the day they said they needed me today cause they were low on staff. That’s why I got to work alone for the first time.

So now that everything was back to normal it was a good day. I cleaned rooms on my own and I think I did ok. I hope I remembered everything. I have this fear of someone calling the front desk like.. “Umm.. Someone forgot to put towels in my room.” But I don’t actually think I forgot anything that important. If I did forget something I think it would have just been something small. But I did it and it was great and fun and interesting. And I even stocked my own cart at the end of the day! Yay! Thank you!

So yes, that was my crazy fourth day of work. I am so glad it is over and so glad I got through it and so glad I didn’t have to go home. Hoping tomorrow will be better and I am ready for it.. Cause it will for sure be better than today. 😛 Goodnight.
