My First Job~~ a `SaLad GirL`

It was at a seafood restaurant.I lived in a beach town and was just 15.I wanted to make some money to buy my first car. My brother worked there as a dishwasher so he got me on.He was also my best friend so fun was inevitable!
My title was "SaLad GiRl" LOL!It was a summer job.My job was to make all the stuff that goes on the salad bar and keep it looking nice! Sweet!! It was pretty easy!
The owners of the restaurant were foreigners who didn't care how old you were or how many hours you worked.I was loving that part.They paid you under the table so rock on!I usually went in around 3 in the afternoon and worked until 1 or 2 in the morning.. It was more like a party! My brother, his friends, and everyone was super cool!! The bartender would make us drinks towards the end of the night, every night so, at 15 I thought that was awesome!
My Mom also let us drive her caddillac to work so she wouldn't have to stay up to come get us!How crazy was that?? I can't beleive she did, but we just went along.What else could we do?? We were unlicensed drivers and it was 3 a.m. We did go straight home, though.There was no need to go anywhere else!
So, really my first job was one of favorite jobs!!I was sad to see summer end and have to stop working there!Oh and lets not forget all the money I made!
I just wanted to add that this was way before I knew about being or became a Christian just in case Pastor A. stops by!LOL

Hi! Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet note, I am fairly new too. I see you are a runner - I was before these boys and I having slowly been getting back into it. I like your running log gadget from Runner's World.

How cool that your mom trusted you with her car at that age, but then again, you showed her you were responsible by going straight home. Plus, it sounds like you had a blast. Wish my first job had been like that.

Hi!
Can't wait to get your button!
I am about 45 minutes to an hour from RDU.
My dad is helping build the new terminal there, actually. It's so cool, too because his jobsite is right beside a runway and President Obama flew in about two weeks ago and my dad got pictures of the private jet!
I live in Goldsboro.

That is too funny! I had a job that gave us a free night cap at the end of our shift. Then again, I was 21 not 15, but it was still pretty great :)

Sounds like quite the job!

Sometimes I think back on stuff my mom let me get away with and I wonder what the heck she was thinking!

Stephanie said...

Olga this totally took me back to my first "cool" job. I had a few prior to the "cool" one....lol. I worked at a restaurant that was crawling with adorable guys and we had a blast! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face as I remembered the past!
