Today was my first day back to work with Publix.The morning started off good because I actually made it to work on time. I have not worked at this store in a while so one of the managers tried to introduce me to as many people as he could. I got to work at 3 and when the next people came in Ernie(the manager) said... "Ryan, this is Robert the Grocery team leader." "Very nice to meet you Robert."
As I am greeting Robert I reached for his hand to give him a "nice to meet you" hand shake. Before my hand was completely extended I noticed something that caused me to think very fast. Robert had no right hand, only a thumb. "Do I grasp the thumb and shake or cross over to the other hand?" "If I shake the thumb... NO TIME, Must react!!!" So I smoothly continued my motion strait to his shoulder and gave him a good "nice to meet you" pat on the shoulder. In the end I think it worked out well. Everyone was very friendly and it is nice to be back with some old co-workers.
