There were a few bumps in the learning curve but now she seems to be doing great.
Unfortunately, she’s working retail and at fifteen she’s figured out that adults can be just as bitchy and frightening as her peers.
This has made me a little sad.
I mean why do people have to be nasty to a fifteen year old who is obviously working her first job?
Because of her new job my daughter has also learned how to mop a floor.
When I pulled up to pick her up from work last week she was out front mopping the tiles of the quaint summer ice cream stand where she works.
It wasn’t going well and while she huffed a bit at my offer to help she did finally let me show her how to mop a floor properly.
And once she knew what to do – she did an excellent job.
Now if I could only convince her to mop our kitchen floor too.
Yeah, that’s probably never going to happen.
But I think now, after working this summer job, she will always be kind to people working retail….
