I have fair-ly bad handwriting
Placeholder Image
My first time working a fair booth wasn’t bad after all, the five-hour shift flying by so fast that I forgot to have supper despite that fact I was handing people delicious food all day.I did a shift at the Morrison Ruritan food booth Friday, something I was a bit apprehensive about since I know how folks take their fair food orders so seriously. I heard horror stories all week about how volunteers at various booths were yelled at and berated because they didn’t get an order exactly right. Don’t get me wrong, 99 out of 100 customers are good people but there’s always that 100th one who feels entitled and is just rude enough to raise his or her voice at the volunteer who is donating their time to help a community organization.Admittedly, it took a while to get my sea legs after I tied an apron around my waist and started taking orders.
