Lessons from the Lunchlady: My Butt is Ha Ha Lirious

This week dragged on and on and on.  Here's what I learned.
  • Read Across America  -  Going to work in your P.J.s  Rocks!  Forgetting your wearing them and going into the bank at 2:30 in the afternoon in your pajamas will get you some odd looks.
  • Lunch Switching --  My boss has decided that since more than 100 days of school have passed we will no longer be allowing you to change your mind about your lunch choice.  If you pick a hot dog you get a hot dog.  This rule is more upsetting to teachers than to students.  Newsflash:  They don't eat not matter what lunch they order and so far none of them have starved.
  • My Butt.  My boss dropped a tray with pizza sauce on it and when it hit the ground it looked like a crime scene.  Forgetting I had a bunch of 3rd grades standing in front of me I yelled, "Did you get that all over my butt."  The laughter in line was contagious.  Personally, I'm happy I said butt and not ass.
  • TMI.    The lunchladys in elementary school are like the bartenders in your adult life.  Be aware that your kids tell us everything.  Including the fact that you had an adults only party in the middle of the week that was so loud your kid didn't get to sleep until after 11 p.m.  I'm not sure what kind of party it was, but couldn't it have waited till the weekend?
  • THANKS.  After handing out 25 trays while saying "You're welcome" in the hopes that someone would say thank you, I leaned over to my boss and whispered, "No Manners."  The very next kid said Thank You.  How do they know what I'm thinking?
What did you learn this week?

Great stuff to know!
This week I learned that I have no idea how to write a resume and it also doesn't matter that I have nursing experience from 25 yrs ago. It doesn't need to go onto the resume. These sites about writing resumes are so confusing for me. Don't put it in if the experience isn't in the last 15 yrs? I don't have anything much to write then. Who wants to even interview someone that doesn't have anything but their address and phone number and "I'm great at papercrafts" on their resume?!?!?!

I'm sure you provided the highlight for many a children's day with your butt comment! : )

The kids will be looking for more one liners from you! I have forgotten that I was wearing pj pants too when running around town.
