Don’t you hate that person next to you in the gym who sings out loud? You know, they just sing snippets of whatever song is on their iPod? Then for the rest of the day you can’t figure out why you can’t get Katy Perry out of your head? Well, today my friends, that person was me. It couldn’t be helped. I was taking a walk to and just could not help myself.
The songs I sang were:
Over the Rhine – Suitcase
Spring Awakening – Totally F*cked
and Panic at the Disco – The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage
Random? Yep. But, that’s just the way it is. I’m sure I looked completely ridiculous, but hey whatever keeps the crazies away. You know who you are!

What is the worst job you’ve ever had? What did you learn from it?
The worst job I’v ever had was working at a certain “breakfast” restaurant. It was my summer job before going to college; I was a hostess. It was just not fun. Every night I had to deal with people who didn’t understand why I could seat their party of 8 when the restaurant was full. Seriously, I could time this one group of people to come in every Sunday at the same exact time and get angry in the same amount of time. It really gets to you or at least me.
More often than not I had to close. This also was not fun. I had to stay until closing even if no one was there. Just because, “Ya never know.” Then the stress of counting my draw. This always freaked me out. You would think it would be easy… I think part of it was that I am horrible in math. No really, I am AWFUL! I was always afraid that I would count incorrectly or give away the wrong amount of change.
My worst fears were realized when one night I went back to count my drawer and my manager told me I was $1,000 dollars off! I thought I was going to die right there or at least be arrested. Thank goodness for me and my manager recounted my drawer and I was only off like a dollar. Talk about miscalculations!
Never again will I work in the food industry. Go to places involved in the food industry? Absolutely. I respect anyone who has enough patience to be a waitress, hostess, busboy, line cook etc. It is just not the job for me. I sometimes think I could be a chef and cook or bake in a restaurant, but I know that I would just flip out one day, screaming about wearing string bow ties leaving confused customers and raw pancake batter in my midst.
Let’s not go there, it can’t be good. Not for anyone.
