Five Minutes to Fear

Le 15 mai 2017, 05:59 dans Humeurs 0

 Our families camped together once a month, so when the Fourth of July fell on our scheduled weekend, we never gave it a thought not to proceed with our plans. The drive to Rehoboth Beach took six hours, counting four bathroom stops for three children and two women and two men who swore they would lay off the water.

 

The campsite was five miles from the pristine1 shoreline and boardwalk. We couldn't wait to dig our toes into the warm sand. Our daughter was seven at the time and our friends' daughters were eight and three. We packed enough toys, beach towels, and tanning lotion2 to last three weekends.

 

After pitching our tents and setting up camp, the seven of us piled into our cars and began the hunt for parking spaces closest to the water so that the men would not have to resort to camel-like behavior when hauling our supplies to the beach.

 

We staked our claim on the remaining ten feet of sand and sent the children to the ocean's edge. Our striped towels and white flesh blended with the thousands of other sun worshipers. Music blared from cranked-up radios while Frisbees whizzed overhead. Fair-haired recruits in muscle shirts hawked3 their ice cream sandwiches and cold soda4 while I poured lukewarm Kool-Aid.

 

From where I reclined, I had a clear view of the three girls splashing near the water. They chased the waves and tunneled into the wet sand, building castle after castle. It took extreme persuasion5 to convince them to relinquish6 the sea long enough to split soggy sandwiches with us. Periodically, the men would drop their books and leap into an incoming wave while capturing an unsuspecting child. I could only imagine the giggles7 above the beach clatter8.

 

After hours of play - and sunburned feet - we motioned for the girls to join us. I packed the towels and lotion while my best friend packed the toys and food. We each had our responsibilities but neglected the most important one. My daughter and her eldest9 daughter arrived by our side. Their youngest girl didn't.

 

We locked eyes. Our previously10 orderly world shrunk to the beach and the thousands of people strewn around us. Instinct jolted11 us into action. We screamed her name and pushed past bathers and tanners, frantic12 to find a missing child in a green bathing suit. Each second ticked by as though specifically designed to torment13 us.

 

"Angela!" My head snapped as the perfect picture of a mother and daughter reuniting exploded in my vision. I wanted to fall to the ground and weep amid the mass of strangers who had been unsuspecting participants in a drama unfolding before them.

 

Since that day, I've relived those five minutes of fear at Rehoboth Beach too many times. I relived them each time my daughter hid from me behind a store fixture14 or ventured out alone in the car after passing her driver's test. I relived them when she was late returning home from dates and when she married and moved to a city far from my reach.

 

Years later, we relocated to Florida, where once a month we frequent the swarming15 beaches of Daytona. My husband and I rent beach chairs and an umbrella and stake our claim along with the other beach lovers hoping for a relaxing time in the sun. Invariably, I spy a child dropping his bucket to search for his own cluster of recognizable faces. My heart freezes until I witness the mother wrapping her arms around him again. Only then do I breathe and rejoin the masses.

Aquatics Reception

When the customer asked me for service, if I can I will pleasurably serve them, if I can't I always say that:

"I am the aquatics receptionist, please wait a second, let me find expert staff to serve you event mangement."

So around the aquatics and pets areas you can hear me call staff to serve often.

Sometimes I couldn’t find any staff around, so I went to the manager’s office to ask him come out serving. I was running up and down, as I didn’t want any customer waiting for a long time and try to do the service as quick as we could. When I found a member of staff, I like to introduce the staff to the customer:

"His English better than me, let him serve to you would better." or "He is an expert, he knew all wrinkles . You can ask any question and got the right answer from him school finder."

The customer are always happy and gives many thanks to me.

For customer service answering the telephone is very important, our ringing normally comes from the information desk, tills, customers and others. Mostly they ask for prices, advice or looking for some staff to use. At the beginning, if I was near the telephone I liked to pick up and answer it, after a few times I was afraid, because I couldn’t completely understood what’s said by the customer at the phone.

One time there was a call from the till asking for a price and I didn’t know. So I went to the till, took the goods back and found the price from the shelf.

After that when the telephone was ringing, I always called another member of staff to come and answer. Sometimes when it was ringing I said:

"Hello! Aquatics, I’m Jinglebell how I could help you?" But I didn't pick up and kept some yards away from the telephone Online Reputation Management!

  No living creature can laugh except man. Trees may bleed when they are wounded, and beasts in the field will cry in pain and hunger Wedding Planning, yet only I have the gift of laughter and it is mine to use whenever I choose. Henceforth I will cultivate the habit of laughter. I will smile and my digestion will improve; I will chuckle and my burdens will be lightened; I will laugh and my life will be lengthened for this is the great secret of long life and now it is mine.

  I will paint this day with laughter; I will frame this night in song. Never will I labor to be happy; rather will I remain too busy to be sad. I will enjoy today's happiness today Hair Styling course. It is not grain to be stored in a box. It is not wine to be saved in a jar. It cannot be saved for the morrow. It must be sown and reaped on the same day and this I will do, henceforth.

  And with my laughter all things will be reduced to their proper size. I will laugh at my failures and they will vanish in clouds of new dreams; I will laugh at my successes and they will shrink to their true value. I will laugh at evil and it will die untasted; I will laugh at goodness and it will thrive and abound. Each day will be triumphant only when my smiles bring forth smiles from others and this l do in selfishness, for those on whom l flown are those who purchase not my goods Muti Media course.
