So my cousin says I need more content. It’ll happen as time goes on. In the meantime, here’s a meme (she tagged me for it):

Four Jobs I’ve Had

  • My shortest job ever was in a jewelry kiosk in a mall in Virginia. I was there for like two hours when I became disgusted at the rip-off techniques they demonstrated on a 16-year-old boy buying something for his girlfriend. This was during a summer break from OSU.
  • My longest job was as a Japanese office lady. For 13 years, I did bookkeeping, finance, international currency exchange, and took Japanese people to the social security office, drivers’ license office, doctor’s office, and translated (loosely) whatever ideas they needed to understand or get across to someone else.
  • My most difficult job was in tech support at a very geeky software firm. With 6 months of self-study and a couple of Microsoft certifications under my belt, I became den-mother to the much younger tech support guys who’d just come out of deVry. I was barely treading water trying to support seasoned programmers with my 6 months of virtual experience when they recognized that I’d serve them better as a tech writer. Thank God!
  • My funniest job was in a Chinese restaurant owned by an absent-minded math professor. He would wander off down the mall in pursuit of smokers that he would lecture mercilessly and I’d have to go find him to remind him that he was in the middle of cooking something for a customer. He and his wife were vertically challenged, so they always had me get things off the high shelf for them while he’d sing “loooooo la loooooo, Kim has long legs!”
