I worked in the Food Court [...]read story & comments

Being a cashier isn’t bad… Dealing with people is.
I work as a cashier in a small, family owned grocery store. The job itself isn’t that bad at all. It’s not hard once you learn how to do WIC checks and remember a few produce codes. All you really have to do is move stuff past [...]

Some of you may or may not know of the somewhat small franchise called Nothing But Noodles. I’m not entirely sure, but i think they are mostly scattered around the south.

So, I basically only went into this program because my parents wanted me to and it was all about “you’ll find a job afterwards.” Yeah.. wonderful, whatever happened to do what makes you happy and worry about money later?
