Currently working as a receptionist/data entry clerk at an 'Ear, Nose and Throat' doctors office while finishing school. (Computer science and engineering)
As boring as I thought the office work would be, it's not. I take my time with the data entry, even though I could do it pretty quickly, making sure everything is accurate (I am dealing with peoples health information, after all) and in my 'down time' I can study. I've met a lot of people there (patients and other doctors) and the demeanor of a person visiting a doctors office is so very different than when they are in Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart customers are, mostly, rude, impatient, demanding and treat you like you're less than human.
At the office, people are, mostly, polite, kind, understanding and treat you with respect. And that makes me feel proud that I'm there to help them, even in my small way, with what they are going through.
I recently had a little boy in the office who somehow got a pearl stuck in his ear. His grandmother gave him a string of fake pearls to play with (he's 6 years old), it broke and he was playing with the little beads and managed to get one in his ear and they couldn't get it out. The doctor had to use a hook and the poor little guy was crying and there was blood. They called me into the office to help, what I ended up doing was holding his other hand while his mom cried and told him a story about how I did the same thing (it was made up, of course) and how I was scared and how it hurt, but it went away after a while and I had a cool story to tell my friends at school after getting a few days off to stay home and play while my ear healed. He calmed down and they were able to pack and bandage it with little trouble.
It felt so good to see the smile on his face, and a week later when they came in for his follow up he had drawn me a picture of me, him, his Mommy and the doctor smiling in the office with the pearl in the doctors hand.
It made me long to be a mommy. LOL
Okay, too long, all you asked is what I do.
