So back in my teenage Bob Evans working days I was known as June.
|Nope, not me.|
Long story short there were “too many “Kellys”” working at that particular Bob Evans and since I was the LUCKY last one hired I went by my middle name…June.
Why I didn’t tell them it was Anne or Beth or something I will never quite know…but…June it was.
(And just so you know I LOVE my middle name. It's after my grandmother who I never met and it makes me happy to know a part of her is ALWAYS with me!!!! It's just that at age 16 most girls probably don't want to go by June if that's not their name...besides I got sick of people asking me if my birthday was in June...for the record it's in November.)
So……during my time there quite a few “interesting” things happened.
One of my co-workers decided I was a good one to confide in (my 16 year old self btw) about all the gory details of her love life with a MUCH older man…can you say EW??????????? I sure “learned” a lot…UCK!!
I spilled a perch dinner on the floor and all over my shoes…and when the bus boy cleaned off my shoes (his choice not my idea) we both noticed I was wearing 2 different styles of black shoes. Equally stylish K-Swiss non slip and original style Reebok. AWESOME!
And then there was this one time...I actually got called out FOR BEING TOO PERKY!!!!!!!!! W-W-WHAT? Yep, that’s right folks.
I will NEVER forget it!
There was a family of a mom, dad and 4 kids around my age. I went up and introduced myself like I always did and the man looked me square in the eye and said something like, “WOW! Now YOU are a PERKY one aren't you????!!!!” He looked at me like I was an alien! I didn't even know what to do but still to this day I think well HECK, wouldn't you RATHER have a NICE PERKY server at Bob’s than a rude Eeyore of one?
Things that make ya go “hmmm”…
And just because I've been suck in the 90s lately…here ya go.
