Answer:

Hello, my name is Vivian and I have recently started working as a sales associated for seven/eleven store. I work 2 1/2 wks. I had a little accident and broke my toe and brused my ankle and foot pretty bad. Of course I'm not able to stand on my feet for long length of time for now. I really felt bad about not being able to come in I was the one who covern for anyone who called in sick. For now I'm part-time, but need to go to full time (asap). I have another part-time job, during the day. Which I can do, receptionist work. The new job is fun and there is alot to learn. I'm enjoying the customers, as they watch me, because they know I am new. The hardest thing for me is clocking in, for some reason when I go to clock in I always end up at the wrong place and I have to ask for help. I have called several times and told them I am coming back as soon as I can stand for several hours on my foot, not to write me off. Viviana
