To commemorate last year's Labor Day, I did a 3 part blog-a-thon detailing the labors of our little bundles of joy...I'm gonna go ahead and not do that again. But, if you really want to read all the juicy (ewwwww!!!) details, feel free here.
For this Labor Day, I thought it would be swell to share our working backgrounds...where have you actually labored? As in work...not birthin' them babies.
My first job, I guess you could call it, was working for a mini-golf course haunted house...getting paid under the table, of course. It was my esteemed pleasure to welcome visitors, advise them not to touch the "monsters" and "ghosts", and make empty promises that the ghouls would not touch them. It was a horrible job.
Next, I worked at The County Seat...for all you youngsters, it's a now defunct clothing retailer that specialized in matching entire outfits. I could hook you up with some Levi's, a t-shirt, Henley, flannel and scrunchy in under 10 minutes. Boom! That lasted for about a year...
Then, I moved onto Deck The Walls...a custom framing and art store. I really enjoyed this job at the mall because it did involve (some) skill and culture. I stayed with this job for about 5 years....
Lastly, I was an Educational Interpreter for Deaf students in public schools. It sounds cooler than it really was...and yes, I know sign language and no, knowing how to do the alphabet isn't the same thing. I did this for 6 years until I went into LABOR (ha!) with our Joe.
Since having kids, I dabbled briefly with an office supply distributor where I was able to work from home and a kids' safety program (that gave me nightmares)...other than that, I sit around and eat Bon-Bon's all day while watching my "stories".
What about you? What's your work history?
