I have a Job: Day 15 of the Count Your Blessings Challenge

My first job was washing dishes at a locked facility. That means that the residents were either too dangerous to be let out, or too fragile.

We had to puree whatever was for dinner to give to those who couldn't chew. Have you ever seen spaghetti after it's been blended? The dirty plates were frequently covered in mucus.  Yeah. I got paid four-something an hour to do this.

The upside was: I got a paycheck.

On top of that, I had a great boss, I made friends. I got out. It was good for me.

In retrospect, I feel everyone ought to start out washing dishes. The wedding venue where I now work has the most servant-like dishwashers I have ever met. And I should know!

A job is a blessing!
