What I learned in the cafeteria

On Wednesday, my boss returned and I was elated.
Being the cafeteria manager is a lot of work. I have tons more respect for her now that I've had to fill her shoes for more than three weeks.
Here's what I learned this week:
  • Canadian Bacon: Kids in grades K-3 have no idea what Canadian Bacon is. Even when you tell them it is ham. One Kindergartner asked if we were serving Deer Meat. Only in Pennsylvania will you get that question.
  • Eggs: Posting a picture of processed eggs will get you the most comments you have ever had. To answer some of your questions....they come frozen like bricks. There are approximately 50 eggs in one bag. And yes, when you open them they look like vomit.
  • Dishwasher: If your dishwasher starts making a sound like a bug zapper you will likely need a very rare part. This will force you to have to hand wash all dishes for the remainder of the school year.
  • Paper Trays: Paper trays are a blessing. Especially when the dishwasher doesn't work.
  • Kids make me laugh: There is a hallway display at our school listing commands that you may hear at home. It is written by 1st graders. Some of the commands include: Please stop talking. Give your brother a bottle. But the best one of all time is: Get off the tramp! (I'm hoping they have a trampoline because if they don't Dad may have some explaining to do.)

Have a great weekend. I'm off to the beach for a girls scrappin' and drinking party. I'll be back on Monday!

Ugly eggs with lots of stale gravy - Yummy!

What happened to that classic command of yore: leave your brother/sister alone. Now!

AHAHAHHA! "Get off the tramp" That is so hilarious!

I hope they get the dishwasher working. I can't stand to hand wash my own dishes. I can't imagine the many you have to!
