I do the things I’m told, I stand up for myself at times, I suck up nasty comments at other times… I make my drinks fairly well, as long as the customer isn’t stuck up or rude. I could be a good manager if I really wanted to before one. I will never get ‘better’ here, I just need to move on. 21 months ago

It’s always really hard for me to get comfortable in a new environment, especially since I always see new people at my coffee shop (I don’t think we have a very high return rate :( ..). I do try to make people happy, but I find it really hard to spark up a conversation. I’ll go as far as the weather with strangers, but no more. I’m always guarded because some people turn out to be real jerks if I try to talk to them, and others just want to get me talking and scam me. 23 months ago
I’m still having a lot of trouble making small talk. It’s more of a personality thing.. I just really have trouble striking up conversations with strangers. Even if they offer me a few lines, it usually fizzles out into uncomfortable silence. Mostly I just pretend that I’m very busy making their drink. If I could learn to make small talk easier, I would have something to be thankful about from this job (besides the money). 2 years ago
