Your Childhood Show Is Even More Relatable As An Adult

5 Spongebob References I Understand Perfectly Now That I Work In Food Service

If you ask anyone who I spend a ton of time with, they'll probably tell you that I love Spongebob. Seriously. I love Spongebob.

It all started during my childhood when my sisters and I would gather around the TV and shout along with the lyrics of the theme song. Then in 2005 when the movie came out. You. Best. Believe. I. Was. Stoked.

I am a firm believer that there is a Spongebob quote for anything. Any situation, any time, I can pull up a reference to the best kid's show of all time. Heck, I'd even go so far as to say it's the best show ever. (If you disagree, we probably can't be friends...)

Now that I have a job in the working world, and more specifically, the food service industry, Spongebob has become even more relevant in my life.

Here are 5 scenes from the show that really speak to me.

1. Anchovies.

Picture this: You're just chilling at work, wondering if things could get any slower when... BAM. Suddenly the restaurant is packed and you literally can't move fast enough. But just when you think that things can't get any worse... BAM. The takeout phone starts ringing off the wall and you have even MORE hungry mouths to feed. Pure chaos.

2. Soiled it.

"The customer ordered a medium... And I gave him a LARGE! A LARGE! I've soiled the good Krusty Krab name."

In the midst of working through the 10,000 orders, it's really hard sometimes to avoid making mistakes. The customer wants a large all meat pizza with extra ham, and you accidentally put it on extra thin crust with no ham and extra bacon. And then to make matters worse, you have to re-roll dough and start the whole order all over again...

3. Hot kitchen struggles.

I don't work with a hot grill, but I do work with a really really hot oven. In the last three weeks alone, I've used half the stock of band-aids in the first aid kit and left work with a burn on nearly every finger. I'm new, and oven duties are for the more seasoned veterans. But we all gotta learn how to move pizzas around sometime, and I just happen to not be very good at it...

4. Obsessing over the food I make.

"You like Krabby Patties don't you Squidward?"

Despite the fact that I'm around the pizza, subs, salads, and sweet tea practically all the time, I still get random cravings for our food. Seriously. It's probably once a week that I get a hankering for our specialty house dressing and a plate of our ooey-gooey garlic cheese sticks. In fact, I'm actually craving them as I write...

5. Pay day.

(People in all lines of work can get down with this one.)

I only get paid once a month. So this one I really, REALLY like.

I mean like, really.

See? A Spongebob reference for everything.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
