How I Make that Money Honey!

Hey Ladies! Does anyone else wonder where the time goes? An hour these days feels like seconds! Lanta. Anyways, I'm going to link up with The Bargain Blonde today for a fun little post about what I do at work.
Now, I haven't graduated school or anything fancy like that but I do still have a full time job that I wouldn't mind keeping even after I graduate for a while. I currently work the front counter at a local dry cleaner. I really do love it. Yes, it's hot, the customers can be so rude, its hard to stand for hours on end dealing with dirty clothes; aside from all that though I love the unexpected and meeting someone new literally every day. I've got regular customers that come in once a day or new customers that rave about how sweet I am. I love it. 

As long as I can remember I've had a job dealing with customers. I worked at a snow cone place, a clothing store, a hospital, and at a restaurant. I've always dealt with people and I really love it. At this job I have a lot of responsibility, basically I act as an assistant manager. If an article of clothing gets ruined I have to discuss it with the customer and give them their options on replacing it. If something goes missing I have to find it. At the end of the day I balance the registers. It is definitely a lot of work but I enjoy being busy and occupied. I also maintain a lot of the marketing. I run our facebook and twitter pages and keep track of special offers that we're running. 

At this particular store we also have a mailing center so I mail packages, envelopes, etc. which keeps us pretty busy in the down time we have in drycleaning.

As to if I use my degree, obviously I don't because I don't have one. I think this job has taught me much more than school could. I have learned a lot about dealing with the public and managing a business from working here the last two years. 

If I could do anything in life and get paid for it I would really love to blog full time and be a stay at home mommy when I have kids. If R. ever started a car restoration business or a junk yard I would definitely help on the business end of that too. 

Here's a little cleaners funny for ya. I know it's highly inappropriate for a Monday but it's what get's me through! 

What do you do for a living?

I'm also linking up at Glitter and Gloss for Mani Monday, duh! Sorry my nails are always so boring, I don't have the patience for anything other than a solid color!
