Today was my first day volunteering at the hospital. It was a little crazy at first, but ultimately AWESOME! I got some training first, which took a whole, oh, 10 minutes, and then they kind-of just let me loose. Well, not completely--there were 3 other people there. (I'm at the main entrance information desk.) The first few people that I "helped" were probably really sad that they walked up to me. This was how most of those conversations went:
Visitor: I'm looking for this person.
Me: Oh, ok, let me look....uh, they're not here, let me look here (I think...)...um, [turning to my fellow front desk person] where should they be going?
Yeah, I was very helpful. You learn a lot in 4 hours, though. I even had someone say how helpful and knowledgeable I was somewhere around hour 3.5. Ha! Not bad for my first day! (Yeah, I think I laughed when they said that.) The best part, though? The feeling you get when you leave and think that you've just helped people for 4 hours, and it wasn't even that hard. How awesome is that?!
And now, I get to go see "Tangled" again with Kailei! Hooray for Kailei/Jenny Tuesdays!
Oh, in case anyone actually read the title of this post and wants to know what it's about, it's from my first (and only, for today) flower delivery. I had the room number, but wasn't exactly sure where I was going (it was in the first hour or so). The guy working with me said "I think I have some bread crumbs, if you need them to find your way back." Yeah, sure, pick on the newbie...
