Get a job you damn Gypsy!
On a brighter note, I discovered that a pin was created using my design! A couple of years ago, we were asked to contribute designs for the Heartland Area Outback pins. I handed in a rough sketch of American Gothic with kangaroos. I thought it was clever. Never heard anything about it again. Then Jen comes back to our store (she had been at an Outback in Kansas City) and she has my pin! I was so excited! So I talked to Mark about seeing it tonight and he goes, "Yeah I remember that was your idea a long time ago, where'd you see it?" I can't believe he remembered that it was my idea. But anyway I think he's going to try to get one for me. Well I should hope to shout. I would like to have the pin that I designed. I can put that baby on my resume! :)
Unfortunately, I have the large task of creating animal pictures/info on graphs that I need to mail out to local Wal Marts for the humane society.
People requesting free food is one of the downsides to working in food service (among many). I worked at Pizza Hut off and on for two years and found out that a.) everyone that wants something for free actually messed up in the first place and b.) it's really easy to get free food if you complain enough. To this day I could probably call Pizza Hut and get a free pizza. I've seen people do it and know how to do it... it's actually an art.
At least no one who wanted to maintain the integrity of their cardiovascular system.
I guess there's a big difference between a pizza delivery service and the normal sit-down restaurant (for the majority of my time at pizza hut I worked at a store that was only delivery or carry out).
