I'm A Working Woman

I started my first night of work at Build-A-Bear Workshop in Downtown Disney tonight. It was fun! I learned how to stuff the animals and even "stuffed" myself once. The way Build-A-Bear works is that you select a stuffed animal and then take it over to the stuffing machine to be stuffed. The stuffing machine has a tube that you slide the animal over to shoot stuffing into it. Well, I kept forgetting to turn off the machine, which isn't normally a problem because you have to step on a pedal to activate the stuffing--but the pedal is very easy to step on accidentally, or intentionally by another wayward Bear Builder. My trainer said that everyone gets stuffed at least once. I'm working again tomorrow, and I'll actually be on the floor with real customers, so we'll see how that goes. I have a feeling I'm going to be learning my stuffing lesson very soon.
