Ok today…. what a weird day. I started a 70 piece bracelet order. I interviewed for a part time job. And took the kids out driving.
We are poor. There is now other way to describe it. When you start using hand soap for your shower gel….. bad news. My band is going to school and we just moved. All government assistance is in que right now and we will be finding out details of what the next move for employment will be for the band on Friday.
So I have put off working for sometime. ALONG TIME. And so long infact I am afraid that I am no longer an employee marketable. But now I have CEO on my resume. And I am "crazy Bead lady" LOL. right. I do run my own business.
I walked around town trying to find "instant cash" about two weeks ago. I walked into a Tai restaruant and talked to the owner. She asked me what I would like to do. I said I didn’t care. What ever there was to do. Well I left my name and number. WOW. Not even a week later I totally didn’t expect a call. She calls wants to know if I can interview with her husband. Dr… something. Then she proceeds to give me directions. Not to the restaurant but to AMCO Transmission shop. Where I am to ask for Dr. something…
I was talking to my brother as I pulled up to this dark lonley street in a part of town I wasn’t too sure of. (I couldn’t make this stuff up!)
I tell you I walk in and this man behind the counter that looks TAi says, "Are you JD" in his ancient language accent.
I say yes I am. And he pulls in a chair and proceeds to interview me. We chatted I told him that I am available to work evenings doing what ever needs to be done. He says there maybe a spot open in the summer once a week at the Farmer’s Market to work at a booth they run on Wed. I told him how excited I was to work. He was pretty funny because He said over and over and over…..Things that are simple if forgotten cost much more than you are to hire. Example after example of people doing things that are common sense to some but hard for others. I had to hold back my laughter on some. Like throwing away the silver ware with each plate cleared.
Then we started talking business. Found a chord. He is a pHD in Veternary Medicine. He is in Research at UC Davis Med Center. He is the guy you call in when there maybe a pathogen between Animal and Human that they can’t figure out. AWESOME. Wait one question! Why are you running my local AMCO transmission?? I guess research doesn’t pay too well.
So I am set for 4 evenings a week thus far. I am excited to learn how to cook… if they let me and get to know Tai food better. So funny I don’t even know if I like Tai food. Everyone raves about it. We’ll see.
I am worried I will screw things up after hearing all those horror stories. Llike not turning on the rice cooker… Not putting the right amount of rice or water in it. I think I can, I think I can…..
it is only temporary right? I am telling myself that. It does make for some great blog fodder.
Four years later… JD COOK TAI! JD COOK TAI real GOOD!
