Even though I went in for a couple of hours last week, yesterday was what I consider my first real day at work since I am starting my regular schedule.
While I am on my 6-hours-a-week schedule I will mainly be doing the same things I was already doing on Monday mornings. So, yesterday was no different than last week except I am now being paid. The only real change is that while I am waiting for the water tank to refill I have to be productive since they are paying me.
Still, I was just as nervous as if I was starting a brand new job. And, of course, I had issues with equipment that I typically don’t have.
I was dragging the last arena when the drag I was using started messing it up more than fixing it. I had to stop, drop that drag, and figure out how to hook up the drag I used with the Gatot to the tractor.
I got that done and moved on to filling the water troughs. But, the engine on the water tank wouldn’t start right away. Once I did get it started, I drove out to the first field only to find it had quit again. After many tries, I finally got it started and got the water done. But, those delays meant a late start filling the tank, so I left later than I should have.
Also, the pay system still says I don’t exist.
It’s still all good though. I love the place and the people. Little annoyances are sure to pop up in any job.
Now, I just need to adjust to writing later in the day.
