Employee training + booze?

Posted on August 16, 2008. Filed under: Family, Work | Tags: , , , |

I started a new job this week with The Purple Fig Cleaning Co. (www.cleanfig.com) Long story, but as part of the manager position that I took, I’m cleaning houses. (yay exercise!) So today, I was at my new job training with the owner, Amanda.

Now, if you haven’t met Amanda, then this story won’t make as much sense–but to give you a little bit of help, Amanda is a red head. And she’s tiny. And extremely cool.

So, I accidentally scratched this enamel stove top with the back of a sponge, and I’m mentioning to Amanda that, as part of the training and procedural manual I’m writing, we should have a section on DON’TS.

DON’T mix hydrogen peroxide and vinegar

DON’T use vinegar on natural stone

Wow–that’s all I can think of. Not good… 🙂

This was Amanda’s reaction; her eyes lit up and she said, “Oh my GOD! We should totally make flash cards and quiz each other and….OH MY GOD, it can be part of our weekly happy hours AND WE SHOULD TOTALLY MAKE IT A DRINKING GAME WITH SHOTS!”

So, in honor of my first week at the Purple Fig….here is your Friday Fun Link.

Looking forward to trying out the “Ally McBeal” drinking game….
