I have been a working girl for two weeks now! I feel very fortunate to have a job in this economy but on the mornings when the alarm jolts me awake at 4:45am, I briefly re-consider this whole job thing. Working in a truly local environment has thrown me into British life. I have learned more about the British culture, language, and lifestyle in the last two weeks than I have in the last six months. I am amazed by the lack of customer service (reception will let the phone ring 10-15 times before answering!) and the brashness of dealing with customer complaints/issues. I thought I was getting use to the British accent but try talking on the phone to someone talking a mile a minute!
On another note, Jignesh has also been busy at work the last few weeks. He is slowly transitioning to a more specialized department and his work load has picked up significantly. He actually left this morning for a conference in Budapest! With my new job and somewhat odd hours and his new projects, we are like semis passing one another on the highway. Ummm...maybe it is time for trip.
