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!
Sunny, warm and humid with a high of 89. Partly sunny in the North Country and 88.
