Picked up my son from his job at the ice cream stand last night. So glad that he was able to inform us about the woes of being busy at work. Yes, he as actually tired! There were lots of people wanting to be served. One of his co-workers was snippy and bossy when things got busy and out of control. The people were mad at things taking a long time. His feet hurt and he was hungry and thirsty himself.
Can you imagine? I never!
Thank God I have my son to prepare me for what’s outside there in the world of work. To think that I have been working since I was 16 and NEVER knew that these mental and physical perils at the workplace existed. I am definitely going to be much more thankful for any downtime that I might have (I think some people some call it vacation), and I will take good care of my earnings because I worked hard for them. Yes, a whole new world opened up for someone last night.
It was almost as much hard work to hold back the words, “Why do you think the call it work?” or “What do you think your father and I do every day – lunch and shopping?”
But I did not. I listened kindly – and then took it out on my blog. I wonder if someday someone will discover that venting on a blog will save on trips to the counselor/psychologist/bar?
Maybe someday I will stop being sarcastic - when I win the lottery.
