In other news we had a day shopping in town and saw the most interesting 'human statue', I have seen in ages - it was a bloke dressed like a genie complete with gold face and shoes - but he was sat down on what appeared to be a flying carpet. It was very clever and drew a large crowd around him...
|Can you see how he does it?|
|Master the dinosaur came to say hello.....|
|He was a little scared and tried to surrender to Master..|
|Master got over-excited and nearly ate Woody|
|He tried to bite his arm off...|
Woody got very scared and just about managed to get away from master. He saw his chance and climbed up the nearest tall object. This just happened to be a 19 inch television. As you can tell Master and Woody are not fully grown yet. They are both little.
|Master tried to chase Woody up the tv...|
|But Masters little front arms meant he couldn't climb the flat screen- Woody was safe for now.|
|Woody tickled Master under the chin...|
|..and Master then rolled over for a belly rub.|
|Now they were real friends!|
|They were both really happy!!|
Back to real life and I have been working for Asda for about 8 weeks. The first few weeks were training at a different store, but since 29 October, we have been live and working at the store in Hyde. Everything is going really well and I like the job a lot, even though the pay isn't very good. Just two weeks ago a new board was put up showing percentages of how we are doing and showing our progress. One of the things it shows is 'Driver of the week'. This is worked out firstly on how many 'on-time' or early deliveries each driver makes. Last week a few of us managed 100% of on time deliveries. However, when this happens the best driver is decided by how many deliveries that they make during the week. Last week myself and Sean both made the most amount of deliveries - about 80-90 over 4 days of work. So we were both lucky enough to win a shared 'Driver of the week'. Sean though is a veteran driver with a number of years experience - I am the first of the 'new' drivers to win the award for the week!
