Hey... I haven't posted here much, but... I just wanted to tell y'all about my new job.
I'm 18 and living a few hours away from my parents... I moved up here in the spring, but didn't find a job until just a few weeks ago. I think the responsibility of filling out applications and the thought of haveing to go to work every day was very overwhelming for me, so I put off getting a job for as long as I could.
So... I'm working at Price Chopper (big grocery store... I think it's just, like... in New England states?) The one up here has a play center where you can leave your kids while you shop, and... I'm working in there. The kids are ages 3-9, and we have toys and games and craft projects... There's a game cube and a play station... and a TV, and I get to have little kid movies playing all day. I only deal with the parents a teeny bit... when they drop off the kids, and when they come to pick them up... When there are kids in the room I get to play with them and help them with craft projects or games or whatever... When there aren't kids I can't really just play with things, but I'm supposed to keep the room neat and clean, so I kind of get to play with the toys as I'm putting them away.... put all the food back in the cupboards, put the baby dolls in their strollers, etc. And then when the room is clean and there are no kids I can just watch the movie, or read a book, or... pretty much whatever I want, so long as I pay attention and am available when someone comes to drop off a kid.
So I have a job now, and people aren't mad at me for being lazy/whatever anymore, and... I mostly just get to play all day. I'm very happy with this.
... Does anyone else here have jobs working/playing with kids?
