GET A JOB!!!

To All the Jobs I’ve Held Before. And what I learned on my way out the door LOL

 

I have worked many

places in my life.  My first job was at the church nursery

taking care of the young children while their parents were

in the services.  I grew up in 

 

San Antonio Texas and attended Harlandale Baptist church.

 I learned how to deal with children and used my imagination

to keep them entertained and teach them at the same time.

My next job was at Midcap Bearing in San Antonio, TX.  I was still attending college at the time  I was a file clerk here.  I loved my job and all the people who worked there.  The boss man kind of intimidated me a bit, but he loved my desserts and we got along very well after that.  At this job I learned that it takes a lot of people working together to get the job done.  It takes a team.  This is where I met Rick and he moved me to Lytle.  Right away I got a job at

 

 

Lytle State Bank

 

 

 

 

 

I was “let go” because of something that was happening between the president and the secretary at the time that I wasn’t even aware of.  But that is water under the bridge.  Those people are long gone now.  At this place I worked in bookkeeping.  I have since tried to apply here and was told that waitressing is so much more different than working in a bank….hello…I know that moron. And I do have a brain!  All the girls that work there are nice except this one who is a snob and the only way inside apparently.  At this job I learned that not everyone is as nice as they seem on the outside.  You have people who I now call Sunshine People who are fake kind to your face and then talk about you as soon  as you leave the room.  I do not want to work around fake people anyway.

My next job was at a restaurant call El Cid.  It is actually in the building that was my last job.  I was a waitress there.  It was my first waitressing job.  I spilt a pot of coffee on this one dude…he still remembers. LOL  When it was time for my wedding rehersal the manager was not going to let me off to attend….my own rehersal dinner….she said if I did not to bother to come back to work because it would be like me saying I quit….um LOSER!  Of course I went to my own rehersal dinner! I had to learn on the job here and it was quite an eye opening experience finding out how people are towards people who serve them.  Some of the people are very kind and some of them need to get a clue…..My next job was at Keith Equipment.  I did paperwork for them.  I am not sure if this place is still open or not

To be continued.........

I waitressed for years. It is damn hard work. You are right..there are people out there that act like there is a caste system in this country and they are better or smarter than you because you are in the service industry. My girls are both waitresses and have laughed all the way to the bank at times at these kind of people. Bam

Barbara just wish I had a nickle for everytime I drove, rode my bicycle, or walked past the Harlandale Baptist Church. All the years I lived down the street I was never inside that church. I'm Methodist. lol Oh and I've seen El Sid but never been in there. Think I know someone kin to the owners, not sure. Nice list be watching for more. Paula
