The clerk at the hotel

During the summer time the local amusement park hires students to fill positions in both the park and the on site hotel.

My kids all worked there while in the years they were in High School and now that they have grown and moved out I was looking for something to do myself.

My husband is at work all day too so it was rather boring just kneeling beach house by myself. I thought it would be fun to get out, see people, and make a few extra dollars. I applied to work at the hotel while in the month and was cheerful when they hired me. I work at the front desk and it is certainly fun greeting people as they arrive for their holidays… After working there for about a week, I realized that I was certainly lucky to have the position I did. Each day on my way in and out for a shift I had to walk by the laundry room. You could guess the intense heat and humidity coming out of the doors each time they were opened. The fact that they had to launder linens from the several hundred rooms each day was a huge undertaking and the machines generated massive amounts of heat. I would see the cleaning staff in there dripping with sweat while folding all of the clean stuff and thank my lucky stars I worked in the air conditioned lobby. Working as a housekeeper at a hotel has to be the worst job possible. I know there is a person for every job and maybe they felt the same way about my job. After all, all of us also have to deal with the several complaints that our guests have as well.
