Working in Food Services: Told by the Krusty Krab
Spongebob Squarepants

Sometimes Spongebob is way too real. For example, I could easily compare my work life to the Krusty Krab. From hunger-crazed customers, to cheap owners like Mr. Krabs, Spongebob sums up the food service experience pretty accurately.

1. Hangry customers.

There is nothing scarier than a restaurant full of hungry people. I once had a grown man verbally assault me because we were busy and he didn't get his food right away like he wanted to. Hangry people are not people to be reckoned with!

2. Customers that feel entitled.

America's fast food culture promotes the idea of entitlement. At the sandwich shop where I work, we give out complimentary pickles. Occasionally we run out, because a lot of people really like them. This one guy was way too serious about his pickles. He came on a day where we ran out. He asked if he could have his meal refunded because he didn't get his free know, the ones he didn't pay anything for. This man also threatened to call corporate. We were straight outta pickles and he was straight outta luck!

3. Cheap owners.

Working in the food industry, you don't get paid what you deserve, and occasionally you feel it.

4. Closing shift.

The closing shift always feels a little sketchy, especially when you're taking the trash out by yourself. Is this walk to the dumpster going to be your last? *insert horror movie music here*

5. How everyone really feels.

I think most people can relate to this. Nobody really wants to be at work. As the days go on, I find my attitude less like Spongebob's and more like Squidward's!

6. When the work day takes an eternity.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Sometimes it seems like a long shift lasts an eternity. This is especially true when the store gets slow. The time slots where nobody comes in can sometimes make the day go by so much slower. These are the times where you look at the clock at 3:00 and half an hour later you look at the clock again and it's really only 3:04.

7. When the store finally closes.

People try and come in when the store is clearly closed. Sometimes people forget that we want to go home too! But it always makes me laugh a little bit when I see people do this. #suckstosuck

8. When you can finally go home.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

The best feeling is when everything is finished. You take your name tag off, gather your belongings, clock out and head home. There is no better feeling than this after a long day of work!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Being an adult isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Having a job can be really stressful, but not paying your bills isn't really an option. But really, is anything better than serving up smiles? I think not.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

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.

Kinder Self - Eyes

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.
