First Day of Work

So I shifted my hours today. Now I work 9 to 3:30.
This requires me to take a 30 minute lunch break, so I have 6 paid hours on Tuesday and Thursday.
Today was the busiest I'll see for a while, because it's the last day for late registration.

I answered phones, input things into the computers, took people back to do their tests.
I even got my own name tag.

For the record, after I thought about it, putting a pic of my ID wasn't necessarily the brightest thing.
Not the worst thing, since you guys all knew that A.) I'm in community college (And there's only one in Las Vegas) B.) I work in the testing center and C.) My full name is my email address
It's not like you learned anything new about me. So whatever.
So, anonymous, I took it down.
And your message was remarkably creepy.

I'm apparently a proctor.
I work with some cool people. The guy named Richard works my entire shift on tue-thur, and my entire shift minus 30 minutes on mon-wed.

Answering the phone was the scariest part for me, but I got over it pretty fast. "Testing center, this is Lee speaking, how may I help you?"

One girl spoke in such thick chinese or japanese that I put her on hold and handed the phone to someone else. Everyone else I helped pretty well.
I like pressing the hold button. I feel all powerful.
"Muahhahaha, I could leave you on hold FOREVER!"

I could also screw up people's scores and ruin their educational future.
But I would NEVER do that.

Anyway, I'm going to go lay down. I'm TIRED.

I hate (!) answering phones. I hate answering my own phone... Sounds like a good day, hopefully it doesn't get too boring after this, though... That's always tough. Good luck, though!

Answering phones always used to scare me too, because you never know who might be on the other end and what they might ask you! But it sounds like it went pretty well.
