I’m here promoting invisibility

Occasionally I will get a call to work part-time as a promoter in varies places in town. That’s the joys of living in Las Vegas, unemployment can have small bursts of employment. It’s quite fun actually, but a lot of people do it as a regular job and they have a sort of click to it. So it’s not something you want to do on a regular basis.

So, my work ethic has always been something that has been questioned by myself and my parents. I think most of the time parents automatically assume you aren’t a hard worker. Innocent until proven guilty there.
But I’ve always questioned my work ethic simply because I’m a very laid back person and at home I am very lazy. I’m messy.

Well the past weekend I was working a temporary promotion because person who was supposed to be working it had to go in to get surgery and in 2 months couldn’t tell anyone she was not going to make it. Β So they called me the morning of to go and work instead of this woman.
Well she had all of the materials for promoting the product, including the uniform. So I had nothing to promote this product with and I literally just stood there for 6 hours a day, 3 days. Doing nothing.

I actually had a customer walk by a few times and finally he said “How do I get your job? That’s the life right there.”
Uhh, not really. I know it seems like a great job to stand in one spot doing nothing and you get paid to do it. But think about it, all I am doing is standing there for 6 hours. I can’t text, can’t listen to music, no one really wants to talk to me. Just stand there.
6 hours was like 6 years.

When the “auditor” from the company came out to check and see if I was doing everything right, he was kinda surprised to just see me standing there doing nothing. I had to explain the situation. Β He told me that he was glad that I could come on such short notice and he was sorry that this happened.
But honestly I felt sorry for him. His company is the one paying me to stand there and do absolutely nothing. I wish I was doing something that makes it worth it, but there was nothing to do. That company wanted to pay me quite a lot to stand there.

I don’t have much else to say on the subject, I just felt like discussing it.
That is all.

  1. I would have drawn moustaches on my fingers and been a different person every ten minutes. That is 6 people per hour. 36 personalities in one day. Time would fly.
