This week in the cafeteria I've been laughed at, mocked, poked and touched far too much and that was just by my co-workers.
- Meal Qualifications. I continue to be amazed and appalled by what the Federal government considers a reimbursable meal. I've lamented before about "Walk Away Tacos" but this week I learned that a tiny-ass Trix yogurt, a milk and a pack of gram cracker bugs is, indeed, a lunch. Who knew. I always thought that was a snack.
- Juice vs Fruit. On this side of the ring, peaches, pears, pineapples and oranges slices on the other side artificial fruit juice in flavors that include fruit punch, apple, and orange. Guess which one kids prefer?
- What's in your pocket? I picked up one of my friends kids at the bus stop this week because his sister wasn't feeling well. He got in the van and said, "I didn't know you'd be getting me today. Mr. George (our janitor) said I could take these. He pulled Rice Krispy treats from lunch out of his pockets. BUSTED....LOL
- Budget woes. We learned this week that our hours will likely be cut. It's a good thing because I was starting to depend on all that extra cash. Actually between you and I, my last paycheck (which was for 7 days instead of 10) was so pathetic that I think it may have actually cost me to go to work. It's a good thing I LOVE to do dishes and touch wasted food.
- LENT. I gave up green scratchy scrubbing pads and hairnets for Lent. My boss said "No go". I tried to file a religious discrimination case against her but I couldn't afford the paperwork. LOL
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
