#JusJoJan prompt the 17th – “Check!”

Check, to go over a job, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, homework, an email or a letter, to make sure it is correct.

You can also put a tick in a box, next to a question, or list entry to show that things have been finished, done or accomplished. That is called a checklist.

The penultimate job I did before retiring was on a check out till, until I moved to customer service. I would run shopping through the till and take payment. I could, in those days accept cash, cheque ( like a check but spelt differently) or credit card. I used have to check the money, check the change with cash, and check signatures on cheques or cards.

Then I worked in customer service where I had to check out problems for customers, check in and out visitors and packages.

When I first started work years ago in London I was a window dresser, when I had dressed my allotted window I would have to go outside and check my work from the perspective of the person on the street!

There are always lots of checks to be done without them our lives would not be as safe. Checks at airports, ports, borders of any kind. Security checks, safety checks, time checks. You can have health checks, you can check in on people to make sure that they are okay.

Then there is the reality check! This is needed when someone gets ideas about their status! Thinks they are better than everyone else. Or is attempting to do something ridiculously dangerous or ambitious! It is like a short sharp slap…. It usually works well 😊

Oh! Yes at a club, theatre, restaurant, dance hall or hotel you can have a hat and coat check!

I think I have rambled on long enough I have probably bored you all to sleep. I have actually found this post very hard! It’s taken me all day to write this….
