  • Clean toilets... let me explain. I work overnight at Kohls unloading trucks (to help with the mortage and so I would still be home during the day with the kids) and I picked up Housekeeping/Maintanence for more hours. Well that includes cleaning bathrooms and you never relize the little stuff you take for granted until your at the bottom (of a toilet!!!) My cousin called the other day from work and she said she hated when then made her take calls at the front desk all day. I just laughed and said let me tell you what I did last night....

  • I only have one: Be a nurse and take care of miserable sick people who scream at you because they don't feel good. Make sure you work for a doctor who is constantly on an ego trip and will scream at you in front of your patients and coworkers and humiliate you on a daily basis. Also make sure you work for a place that pays their employees who don't have a nursing license ( receptionists, machine techs) as much as they pay you. Dialysis clinics are good for that!!( Can you tell I'm bitter and burned out on working as a nurse?)I think once you've done that you can work ANYWHERE!!

  • Work as a waitress. Once you do it you will be a lot nicer to your next server.

    3)hold a twenty one year old in your arms who has tried to kill himself with three shots from a twenty two to his heart cause his girl left him~think this could be my child but for the grace of God
    4)feed a calf from a bottle and watch as he buts your leg(OWW) cause you may be a strange looking moma but the milk still tastes good~think some things just make you laugh no matter how tired you are:::)))

  • A US Marine. Spend 13 wks in hell but miss it when it's over. Don't shower for weeks,sleep in a hole and hike 80 miles a day with a 100 pound pack on your back but your happy at the end of that cause at least no one shot you. Just a small glimpse into Marine life but if you make it you'll be better,stronger and then you can do anything!
