The Confessions Of Death At Work...

I can guarantee my day was worse then yours. In fact, if you think you've had a bad day, compare it to mine and you'll feel so much better about yourself.

Straight to the point, a customers Guinea Pig died at work today. I was the one that found the body. I've only ever seen tiny dead field mice and birds that my cat has bought back so my experience with the dead fortunately is little next to none. Therefore standing there to see a big fat dead guinea pig, all fours in the air and eyes wide open in the phase of rigor mortis was quite a shock. I then had to check if it had a pulse. No such luck. Stone dead cold. Obviously it was no ones fault, it was just one of those unfortunate timings of death. What a way for a newbie summer staff girl to spend her shift.

It was then wrapped in a towel, placed in a cardboard box and placed in the fridge until we could get hold of the family. Some poor family out on their holiday is soon to receive a phone call that their pet has died. Morbid right?

So this little blog post goes out to the little Guinea Pig that died today. RIP little friend.

I most certainly hope this never gets mentioned on my reference. I also hope that unless you too have experienced sudden death in the work place, that my bad day makes your bad day suddenly look a little brighter.

Could I put this under the 'character building' section of my CV?!
