10 first-day fears Pope Francis is probably experiencing

Don’t worry Pope, we got you.

YOU KNOW HOW it goes.  You spend ages preparing for and going to interviews and desperately hoping that you’ll get a job, but then when you do, you get the fear.

What if no one likes you?  What if you say something stupid?  What if you can’t do it?

We doubt Pope Francis is any different.  Here are 10  first day fears we reckon he’s experiencing today.

Not being able to find the toilet.

It’s an understandable concern, St Peters is massive.

All the cardinals hating him because he got the promotion.

He might have to have lunch on his own.

Not knowing which hat to wear at which time.

Is it just the little cap or the big pointy one?

Does he wear the red shoes all the time?  Just for special occasions?

Falling over on the popemobile.

That thing has got to take some getting used to.

Not knowing where things are in the kitchen.

Where are the teaspoons, dammit!

Not knowing exactly what he…does.

It can’t be all mass all the time, can it?  Maybe one of the Swiss Guard will help him out.

Feeling like the boss is always watching him.

Except in this case, he kind of is.

Not knowing how people take their tea.

Do you ask everyone?  Just the people near you?

Panicking over whether or not you can actually do the job you’ve gotten.

There’s fear behind that smile.
