The first afternoon at an up-to-date job is always nerve-wracking for me.
I have gone through enough jobs in my life that I should be used to it at this point, however I’m not.
Even when I am excited about the up-to-date job, I feel anxious when I first start. This was the case for the cannabis dispensary as well. I applied for this job six months ago, in addition to only now having been asked to join the team. At any other job I would calm my nerves by smoking some cannabis before I went in, however I couldn’t do that with this job. One of the strictest rules at the cannabis dispensary is to not be high at work. It is expected that all employees smoke cannabis officially – or else why would you want to work here? – however, being stoned on the job is a giant no-no. The manager Jenny explained to me that regardless of the product my superb friend and I sell, that the cannabis dispensary is a professional operation, in addition to having to be treated with respect. Many people rely on this supplier to get the medical cannabis they need to improve their lives… Yes the majority of our clients just want recreational cannabis to have some fun. But my superb friend and I also have cancer patients, soldiers with PTSD, in addition to other folks who need cannabis as medicine. For this reason all of the budtenders have to be scrubbed in addition to sober while on shift. When my superb friend and I are off the clock, after that I can use that fat employee discount in addition to getting as much cannabis as my superb friend and I want.
