|The only picture I have of me on my Paper Boy Bike - I delivered papers for six years and only have ONE picture|
Over the years I have had many jobs (in chronological order):
- Paper boy
- Office cleaner
- Mowed lawns
- Worked in a butcher shop
- Shoe store salesman
- Menswear salesman
- Hotel night auditor
- Accounts payable clerk in a steel yard
- Bank remittance clerk
- Bank trust operations manager
- Bank operations consultant
- Hotel front desk agent
- Hotel sales agent

And now I work part-time as a hotel front desk agent again. I will work at this job as long as I am physically able to work. I LOVE my job. Does it have it's "moments?" Of course, what job doesn't? But I love going into work, working with a great group of people, and meeting new people as guests of the hotel. Every day is different. Perhaps the greatest satisfaction I get from my job is seeing the smile on the faces of guests who have enjoyed their stay at our hotel. Even better when a guest tells me that they enjoyed their stay. And after all folks, isn't that what life is all about? Having a pleasant time?
|How can anyone not have a pleasant time seeing this "pleasant" face at check in? I ask you now.|
We have so much drama, turmoil and friction in this world. My greatest sense of satisfaction is making a difference in someone's life, even if it is a small "thing" like making their stay at our hotel a pleasant and memorable experience.
And that's what I do folks and why I like my job. Perhaps the best job I've ever had since being a paper boy. While I would never make a lot of money at either job, I derive my riches from a different souce....satisfaction of a job well done.
