The Best Job In The World
Working at a flower store is one of the best jobs that I never thought I would be doing really. Growing up wanting to be so much in life but then you land something more amazing than you had ever dreamt about. That is exactly what happened to me, and I can never regret having this job as it allows me to do a lot that I never thought I would.
I get to interact with all sorts of people on a daily basis, although some can be mean, the best part is seeing someone walk away with a smile on their face knowing that you have made their day. This job involves flowers, and lots of flowers are what am talking about. People have always loved flowers for millennia, and it is a trend that is never going to stop for a long while to come.
A lot of the people that show up are those that want to make their wives smile or their girlfriends and recommending the right flowers for this people is something that is incomparable to any other. I can never trade this job for anything else as it makes you deal with individuals with all kinds of emotions that you can change with the right flower.
There are a lot of advantages of working here besides the fact that I get to put a smile on people’s faces. You see, when people come in and ask what flower they should buy for someone they have hurt and want to say sorry, I recommend a particular type that I know no one would ever say no to. This makes me mend relationships, and there is nothing in this world that can compare to that feeling.
A lot of the people that I have helped pick the right flowers have come back later on with that special someone of theirs and said a special thank you to me and the joy I feel is just indescribable. I also get to console people as some come looking for flowers for a funeral and I have to recommend the best that we have. I also get to have a few minutes with the guy and make him smile for a while. Again, nothing comes close to this, well, maybe the profit that I make but I can’t say that it can compare to this feeling.
Like any other job out there, this too has its disadvantages and sometimes you just wish you kept a good baseball bat around as some people could use some reminder of politeness. There are some mean customers that come around, and they are demanding, or they blame you for their failed marriage or relationships. Some don’t even come for flowers but some magic that can bring their loved ones back and explain that that can’t be possible; you have to deal with at least five minutes of being yelled at.
Sometimes a customer can order some flowers, and when you deliver them, he says that that is not what they ordered, and you have to take it back or argue with them to no avail. These sorts of disadvantages make you want to quit, but you remember all the money you make and just pretend that it didn’t happen. We plant our flowers and the fact that we also get to tend to them, the hours that we put into this makes every single flower special to us.
We have all types of flowers from fuchsias to lilies to roses and getting to water these flowers as they grow just fantastic. This job is just incredible and despite all the downsides that are associated with it, I wouldn’t trade it for any other job in the world. I have always loved flowers ever since I was a kid, and this is because my father owned a flower store and being there was just an incredible feeling.
It also won me the hearts of a few of the town’s prettiest girls. Although I was the shy type, carrying a flower with me to any date always seemed to make the date even more bearable. Now, working in this flower store, it is amazing to see all the smiles that these flowers get to put on people’s faces.
