Starting a new job is always a stressful time for me.
Being the “new guy” who has to learn everything puts a lot of pressure on me.
I am so worried about doing everything perfectly that I usually screw something up! This job was no different. I was stoked about being able to work at the cannabis dispensary, even though I was still very anxious on my first shift. My previous job was being a bouncer at a pool hall, as well as I was basically doing the same thing at the cannabis dispensary. I always sit at the front door as well as check the IDs of customers when they want to come inside, and sporadically I even need to make people leave their purses as well as bags in the lobby, to prevent them from trying to shoplift our cannabis products. My nice friend and I don’t get a lot of trouble here, however last weekend a drunk guy tried to bully his way into the cannabis dispensary as well as I had to shut him down. Booze as well as cannabis affect people so much differently. A person can smoke all the cannabis in the world as well as never dream of causing trouble or starting a fight. But this guy wasn’t smoking cannabis, he was drunk on whiskey as well as itching to make a scene. I had to drag him out of the cannabis dispensary as well as into the parking lot, where he took a swing at me. That didn’t end well for him. Instead of buying cannabis, he ended his night in the back of a police car with a black eye for his trouble.
