From Babysitting To Fast Food To Supermarket

Rating: 5.0
my daughter my daughter my eldest daughter
has worked part time weekends holidays
since she was thirteen now she is older fifteen
always her choice her wishes in employment
first babysitting sometimes just $10 dollars
for an entire day 8 hours all people could pay
they often made up for it next time if they could
she progressed from babysitting to fast food

serving fish and chips to customers mostly cleaning
experiences experiences teach life realities values
the value of money hard to make easy to spend for many
but in fast foods hours were bad late often not enough
so she moved into supermarkets serving at checkout
again she chose her days the shifts how many hours
I thought she would choose less days less shifts easy
but she surprised me chose most offered the hard way
