May Not Be Paid Enough to Care, But I Serve Anyway

I may not be paid enough to care, but I serve anyway and this time my hard work has paid off — to a degree! Throughout the month of January at Nestle’s we are having weekly contests. The contests are/were as follows: Most Half Dozens (buy 4 basic cookies get 2 free) Sold, Most Shakes Sold, Most Done on Slow Down Checklist (a.k.a. cleaning the store), Most Dazzlers (3 layers of ice cream with hot fudge and cookie crumbles between each layer and topped with hot fudge) Sold, and Top Sales (total sales) for the Month of January. This past week was Most Shakes Sold.

Well, I may not be paid enough to care, but I serve anyway and this time my hard work has paid off. I won that week’s contest. 😀 I don’t normally like to toot my own horn, but… man, that was an awesome week! It was also an insanely crazy, busy week. I was called in to work several times when I wasn’t supposed to be on the schedule, but you know what? I needed that paycheck to be fat for many reasons (but I’m not getting into those online because someone may see them that I don’t want to — let’s just say I’m planning a huge surprise for some people very soon)!

So I may not be paid enough to care, but this past week I actually took time out to talk with customers and get to know them as well as help them make decisions in their orders that maybe they wouldn’t have before and it made the difference between selling something and not. I also found out that on Sunday (another day I was called in, but had not normally worked in the past) even though I didn’t work nearly as long as everyone else, I actually far surpassed everyone else’s total sales that day! 😀

I don’t know how I’m doing these things, but I’m pleased that I’m doing so well at work.

Well, not much else to report on the work or home front, so I guess I’ll have to sign off for now and it’s getting late (yeah, that New Year’s Resolution went bye-bye 😦  Oh well).

God, bless us everyone!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
