"How many breadsticks would you like?" she asked.
"Three," I replied, since there were three of us at the table.
"Just three? Get a few more, and I can build a breadstick pyramid for you!"
We got the pyramid. And I sat there, dazzled at how this woman managed to find joy and creativity in a job that 92.9% of the world would consider "shift work."
What does this have to do with Mary Poppins? As I left the restaurant, this song was playing in my head:
In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun.
You find the fun and snap!
The job's a game.
This week, let's find the fun!
Maybe having all this fun isn't that great an idea - I mean, if we look like we're enjoying ourselves too much, isn't there the chance that the guys who are paying us will think we're making too much money? D'oh!
Hmmm. Now there's a creative take on it. And you might be right: I've had fun on almost all my jobs, and I did have one boss who kept telling me I was making too much money.
So, I left. For more money. Because she who laughs, lasts.
Thanks for the comment!
