Fun Facts about Khalid:
#epicfail- most embarrassing work moment
On my second day of working at Loblaws, I brilliantly decided to eat a burrito before going into work. The second I walked in the training room I needed the washroom but I’m a semi-germaphobe and can only use it at home. Nevertheless, I spent a grueling six hours on shift barely being able to speak to anyone and acting weird until I could leave.
Helping out the daycare in my neighborhood.
Best work moment
While working at Canada’s Wonderland, one of the “monsters” in the maze suffered from an epileptic shock and I managed to catch her right before she hurt herself on the floor.
Best transferable skill
Being a team player.
To either be a UFC fighter or a painter with the prestige of a Bob Ross.
