First Day on the Job – 1972

“Hold the pickles, Hold the lettuce, Special orders don’t upset us,
All we ask is you let us, Serve it your way.”

Our uniforms reminded me of ketchup and mustard. After riding the city bus to Miami Beach to my first paying job, I’d paste on a smile, greeted customers, took their burger and drink orders, and handled the cash register.

  1. Just finished reading your book yesterday, Mary. I will blog it today – Loved it – a book full of hope and overcoming and redemption. Thank you for sharing your heart and painful experiences—–so many need to know they can make it.
