Since I have ditched the Thursday Thongs meme here 🙂 I decided last week that I wanted to try and start participating regularly in the Thursday Thirteen. I was out of town last week and didn’t have the time to type up a post for it so this is my Thursday Thirteen edition number one.

Thirteen Reasons I Love My Job

1…. I get to awaken several hours prior to the crack of dawn.
2…. I get to meet all kinds of interesting people. Crackheads, murderers on parole, politicians, etc…
3…. Lots and lots of grease to condition my skin and hair. So thick that I get the chance to breathe it in daily.
4…. I get the chance to work 70+ hour weeks
5…. I get to work on holidays. ALL holidays including Christmas and Thanksgiving. This year I will get to enjoy working from 6 AM until around midnight on Christmas day.
6…. Burn scars make you look tough.
7…. Go to be AFTER all three of my stores are staffed.
8…. Work amazingly flexible hours such as getting home by midnight and back to work by six.
9…. The opportunity to train and develop 100 people that average $6-7 an hour.
10….Learn exotic languages such as ebonics and redneckese all from the same teacher.
11….Listen to country music all day long with the occasional break for Fergalicious.
12….The chance to learn and grow from listening to whiners…and those are just the customers.
13….I get to awaken several hours prior to the crack of dawn (Yes, this one bears repeating).
