Things I Miss About Working in a Deli

deli service star

You can laugh at my stupid uniform, but I won Service Star of the Month at one point!


A while back, I wrote an article for LA Family Magazine about my experience working in a deli (you can read that here). I worked there about 4 years during my summers and…

Do Work

Photographed, taking photos for work

Funny story about this photo, I was out in the vineyard shooting photos of suckering in the Chardonnay when I realized I didn't get a shot of myself. I asked my co-worker to take my photo of me “working”. When really I’m just posing with my camera phone. We also had to take it twice because my hair was in the way the first…

Shell Shock

My weekends are starting to feel like desperate pauses in an endlessly deafening battle. With shells still ringing in my ears, I scramble around, taking stock of the situation. I snatch a few hours of sleep, feeling as if I’ve stolen them from a stockpile that isn’t mine and I’ll have to give them back when the theft is discovered. I do my best to forestall the coming storm, the resumption in hostilities when the Bouncing Betties and Moaning Minnies will screech overhead, turning my…

A Pause for Air

More and more these days, spending a weekend at “home” (at my parents’ house) feels like taking a vacation from reality. It’s a chance to take a deep breath, unlock my clenched jaw and put aside the everyday stressors. I’ll even, as with this weekend, unplug and let the pull of this blog dissolve just the tiniest bit. It’s not always easy. Even when I’m unsure of my words, the time I spend over coffee thinking of what to say here is an appointment with myself that it irritates me to…

Smile and Be Happy Monday: The Song of Heroes

Ever wondered what heroes hear when they go out and do heroic things? Me neither, but this is what I listen to whenever I feel hopeless, and when I do, I feel like I can take on the whole world.

Work from home guide: how to set up a functional office

So you guys know that I office from my house – and being able to do this is one of the biggest reasons why I absolutely love my job. Sure, I do go into client’s offices from time to time, but being able to work from home more often than not has been huge for both my own productivity and for what we need as a family. I get a lot of questions about how to be successful working from home, so I created a new series all about just that. Last week I wrote about…

Sam Is Reasonably Funny Again: In Which Sam Complains In Funny Ways

I really haven't written about my latest job yet at all, which is funny because I'm a waitress, which of course means I deal with every different species of bullshitus cockabullius.  I swear to god every single day at work I think of something else I should blog about, and then when I sit down to write I can't think of anything.

Well today, I'm going to put together a short beginning list of the stupid frustrating crap I deal with regularly.

1. Those people who…

13 Chic Supplies for the Modern Day Working Woman

It used to be that, in order to be taken seriously as a woman in the workforce, one had to hold true to a serious, stiff persona.  Being stylish, adding girly decor to a cubicle, or wearing flats was a "no-no".  Good news, ladies: times (thank God) have changed.

Gone are the days when the working mother-of-two had to show up at the office in her skirt suit, doting ill-shaded pantyhose and white sneakers, kitten heels in hand.  Today's working woman no longer has to fit a certain…

When I tell people that I’ve only been on vacation three times in my life, they look at me as though I have two heads. No, I’m not a two-headed freak, nor do I have a fear of planes, cars or the sun. I’m also not anti-vacations. In fact, I would love to be able to go on vacation every year and have a few days of work- and worry-free relaxation.

Read the rest here.

How To Ruin Your Day Off

Pretty damn simple.

Wake up thinking about work, convince yourself that you messed up the day before, spend the next few hours thinking about how you messed up and, in the end, call your boss and lose the leftovers of your dignity while trying to explain him how exactly you messed up only to find out that you did not.

I should say that I'm pretty lucky, actually, because if I DID screw up, I'd be in trouble. Deep shit, actually. I'm not, but, still, I am almost…

The Bear on the Back

I slid back into bed, pulling the blankets up to my chin, after calling in sick to work for the second day in a row. But (and this is one of the reasons why this blog will remain anonymous for as long as I can manage it) the ache in my stomach had nothing to do with the bug I claimed to have and everything to do with something I had been expecting for awhile now. It was the brick wall of, “I don’t want to do this anymore,” and it referred to everything from the job that drove me crazy to…

Boredom Sucks Sweaty, Hairy, Ugly, Lopsided Monkey Balls. Or Charlie Sheen's Balls, Which Is Just As Bad.

Every once in a while, when I get really busy and burnt out, I start to wonder what it would be like to have no job or to work very little, maybe even to work from home (I'm still clinging to an absurd fantasy of my blog suddenly becoming wildly popular and being able to just draw funny doodles and whine about shit on the internet for a living). …

I'm being totally neglectful as a blogger. It's horrid. One moment I am as free as a bird, writing and twiddling away with little stories about this, little stories about that thinking I am some sort of Trevor Macdonald of the blogging world. Then before I know it University gives me a work load x6854875, Christmas is here so that means partaking in visiting relatives and striking up awkward conversations of "so are you courting yet sweetheart" and…
