(another) first day on the (another) job

Training Schedule: 8:00 a.m. til 4:00 p.m. today, Wed, Thurs, Fri and next Monday.

Excellent part: cool people, non-scary general manager, district supervisor everyone obviously loves, teamwork, wonderfully detailed training (5 days of it, eight hours a day!), great restaurant, busy lunch hour, good co-new-workers, delicious food, dozens of new people to make friends with

Suckrat part: hayfever allergies kept nose running and sneezing from 10 a.m onward, had wet kleenex pressed to my face almost entire three hours I was following Pat (a server) and supposedly learning from observation, 10 mg. Claritin plus 10 mg. generic lamogatrine did NOTHING, was in health code violation the entire time, finally sat down to the fun part of training - tasting! - and was served wonderful Chinese food plus cocktails, beer and sake for two hours AND COULD TASTE NONE OF IT.

extremely discouraged, have call in to doctor, can't complete next four days of training without ability to taste.
