I start my new job today!! I took yesterday and Monday off and am thrilled that I will have 3 days of work, the weekend, and then a real full week of work. I have no idea what the training will be like, so I’m planning on just showing up and going with the flow.
I remember when I started my last job, a woman on my team said “Katie, when I first saw you, I thought you looked so sweet, and then you opened your mouth.” I don’t curse every other word of the day, but I am sarcastic.
This lovely glass was a gift from a coworker, who didn’t sit by me for long, but was always laughing at the way I would phrase things. I will be keeping this glass displayed at home to remind myself that I have some good qualities, and that maybe some of the witty comebacks should be for after work hours only.
Here’s hoping my new coworkers appreciate my comments, and here’s hoping I have the strength to hold back for a little bit while they warm up to me!
What qualities do you bring to your work team?
Have your teammates told you anything that you hadn’t realized about yourself?
