Today was easier than yesterday, even though I left for work earlier. I got home in a reasonable amount of time and only had to fight sleep halfway home instead of all the way.
I finished watching the last ep of Hinterland before going to bed for a nap. That nap consumed most of my idle time, though, so I have no time for an extensive blog post tonight--or, indeed, much of anything other than going to bed.
But it's okay. I like this job, I like where I work, I like the people I work with, I like the environment there, and the work itself looks as if it's not going to be soul-crushing crap like it was at that previous place. Certainly I am not going to have to explain to someone 40,000 times that they don't get a credit on their bill just because they used more data than they did last month and don't want to pay it. Most of the calls in the "skillset" that I'll be handling seem to revolve around password resets and inventory computer batch issues, all stuff I think I can do, and the hardest part of the job will be the multitasking--switching from answering an e-mail to taking a phone call. And that shouldn't be too bad.
The guy I'm shadowing makes it look easy. Give me six months and I expect I'll be around there, too; it's not rocket science and it looks like at least 75% of this job is just knowing the procedures. Which I am learning.
And with that, I go to bed to prepare for tomorrow's work.
