Four Things Meme

OK, another meme. Nobody memed me. I just memed myself. Wait. That sounds a little self-centered. Whatever. I saw this on another blog and appropriated it. OK, that sounds better. Meme yourself if you like it. There I go again.

Four Jobs I have Had

1. Working in a trash compactor factory. I had horrible bruises on my legs from lifting up the compactors.

2. Working as a grill cook in the canteen in college. I was the only employee they ever hired who successfully allowed a hamburger to slide INTO the grill and catch on fire. They couldn't stop talking about it. Really.

3. School Technology Coordinator at my school. My friend Vicki and I went to a class on assembling computers and caught the computer on fire. Do you see a pattern here?

4. Clerk in a very tiny children's book store. I took my baby daughter with me and, while closing up one night and managing her, I forgot to lock the door. I got a call in the middle of the night that the door of the shop was hanging open. Man. I'm a GREAT employee.
