Ever learn something from your summer job?

quote [ While I commuted from my parents’ house, the largely Mexican kitchen staff I worked with traveled vast distances to get to this job, and worked far longer and harder than I did. The memory of performing not only physical work, but the emotional labor of cheerful customer service for $8 an hour and very little in tips, is something that I’ve never since forgotten. ]

I played word games one summer. You're given a name and have to name someone whose name started with the last letter of a name. I won $15 on Yvette Mimieux.

I learned how to swap engines and transmissions, take cars apart and put them back together, cut cars in half and extend them, and do fibreglass body and interior work....... and how to drive stick, and clean up spills with cat litter. :)
