My Disney Journey

This blog was a journey of my application to Walt Disney World's Cultural Representative Program, from sorting out my CV through all the interviews to a year of having a mouse for a boss! Now, watch as I try to get back to my second home.

7 months isn’t too long is it? May 4, 2011

So I slept in today. And then, when I got up, I popped up to Riyad’s so he could cut my hair. I’ve not had it cut since I had my face-to-face interview, and it’s really gotten far too long, and the ends are all horrid. Now, however, the horrid ends are gone, it’s been cut slightly shorter than I’d like, but it’ll grow to a decent length again, so all is good! Then I came home, skyped mum for a bit then went to Epcot for work. I grabbed some lunch at the french pattisserie, then went back to the Rose and Crown for work.

So today was my first solo shift as a server. Generally, your first solo shift must be a 3-table section. I was in 401, which is a 3-table section, except when it’s made to pick-up table 504. So I told Holly that I can’t pick up, due to it being my first shift. Of course, she ignored me, and I suddenly found myself with a fourth table, without any warning. I would’ve been fine with it, had I had warning, but Holly just turned round and went “you do know 504 is yours, right?”, and I don’t even know how long they’d been sat there. So I had a bit of a go at her! She didn’t think it was an official thing that servers are meant to have 3-table sections on their first shift, until Yelitza, the manager, also had a go at her! I hadn’t said anything to Yelitza, so that was a shock to me. Either way, one of my tables got picked up by another server, I was back down to three tables, and everything went really well!

And now I’m getting ready for Chillers, so I must dash!
