Wishful Wednesday

'I wish' .... I could go back and spend one day working at a job from my youth, and it would be ______!

Although I was lucky enough to not work too much when I was younger I did eventually get a job. My first 'official' job was working as a receptionist at a beauty salon.

The salon was actually very popular in our town and probably one of the biggest salons around our area at the time (with 35 hair stylists, 8 nail techs, 4 estheticians and a masseuse). Plus, it is where I got all my beauty services done for years....I actually think I got my first hair cut there when I was young!!

I had a lot of fun working there most days, there was bound to be some drama with that many women working under the same roof, but I did my best to stay out of it. That was until one girl (newer hair stylist) threatened my to kill me because her "boyfriend" was actually dating someone else that I worked with at a clothing store (my other job). The first day I started at the clothing store this girl found out that I also worked at the hair salon and was asking all types of questions about this one hair stylist. I didn't know too much about her so I didn't have too much to say. I guess this girl was dating what she thought was the hair stylists EX-boyfriend. Turns out he was dating them both and I guess they found out because of ME??? I don't really know how that works out and how I was the one getting my life threatened while working (at the salon) in front of a lot of clients, but whatevs. It became quite a scene and she was fired on the spot. D-R-A-M-A for your mama!!!

Despite this incident I still loved working at the salon and continued to work there until I moved away for school.

P.S. After this drama occurred at the salon I was scheduled to work at the clothing store with the other girl the next day....she never showed up to work again!! I guess I lucked out by not having to have their drama in my life any more.
