One Day Jobs + Trivia Tuesday

Many of us had that one job that we just couldn’t handle for more than an 8 hour shift. Mine was Brigham’s!It was to be my very first job.  A mere 15 minute walk from my house.  The job itself wasn’t bad.  Being surrounded by ice cream in the summertime isn’t a bad thing.  The uniform…that’s another story.  I was sixteen-years-old and mortified that I had to wear a brown and orange polyester dress.  It was just too much for me to handle!  So I came home and told my mother I had quit.  In what I call a ‘teachable moment,’ my mom wanted to teach me to respect others, so she made me return the uniform the very next day, along with an apology.  Lesson learned. I learned from that moment on, make sure you like the uniform you’ll have to wear or find a job where you can wear your own clothes!

Weather
