Free Box

Today I had my second orientation at Wheatsville and had my first experience with the free box. I am in love..
Kind of crappy picture, and yeah, not everything is highest quality. But,! Head of romaine lettuce with some wilting leaves, cucumber, White Mountain tofu salad, tomato, spotted bananas, and Rudi's Organic Multigrain Oat bread. MMmm, enough for at least a week of yummy sammiches, plus I'll freeze the rest of the bread and make french toast or something later. The bananas will make excellent bread and smoothies. Awesome.

Orientation went well, and I am super excited about starting my training on Monday. The beginning of orientation was a bit off putting, because we started by watching the video "Fish!" It was about the fish place in the Seattle farmers market that is famous for throwing fish and yelling stuff, and making the customers hold fish and all that. They are really crazy and enthusiastic. The video was all about customer service, and just having that good attitude no matter how you're feeling. At first it was really hard for me to watch the video because they were treating these dead creatures with no respect, and it was just disgusting. On the one hand I am thinking "how can you talk to me about respect, and good attitude and being there for the customer when you are not giving this creature the same courtesy." I got over it though, and just listened to what they had to say. They had some good points, and overall it was pretty uplifting. I just couldn't look up when they were making the fish "talk". The bonus was finding out that the GM of Wheatsville is vegan! So, yay for that.

Freebies! How cool. Glad your orientation is off to a good start. Ugh about the video. I've been by that place in the Pike is even more disgusting in person.
At least the GM is vegan, that's pretty cool!

Yeh, Wheatsville isn't totally vegan, but it should be a cool place to work. And freebies! I love White Mountain Tofu Salad. And free Rudi's stuff is a real score.
