I’m thankful for…

My job makes me thankful for things that I used to take for granted. Here are a few:

 

*My school bus picked me up at my house. And it was a good school district so I didn’t have to travel far.

*I have a shower and a bathroom at my house and I never have to ask if I can use the key.

*I can afford more than coffee for lunch.

*My husband is loving- I have never had to borrow a phone to call the police because I’m scared for my safety.

*I have never had to get businesses to sign a form saying that I asked for a job application.

*My parents taught me manners.

*Whenever I swipe my card there is money on it.

*My boss doesn’t make me buy him asinine drinks every single day and call him if they’re out of his favorite pastries.

*I don’t have to wear a uniform or apron.

*I am only addicted to coffee.

*I don’t work the night shift.

*Not only do I have a job, it’s a job that I love.

 

Happy Thanksgiving, blog-o-sphere!

To the business lady who is drinking her Starbucks coffee in my independent coffee shop:

Please stop glaring at the elderly man with the pancake-sized rhinestone keychain hanging from his belt and the shuffling, clompy cowboy boots. You know, the one who is smoking an unlit cigarette, swearing loudly into his phone, and saying incoherent things to the television.

He bought a Pepsi, which is more than you bought.
