I have been a waitress in the same restaurant for 22 years. My customers are more than patrons, they are family. They have watched me grow, go through a marriage and a divorce, raise my girls. Some of them are elderly and I know that I am probably the only conversation they will have all day. It may not pay as much as a CEO and may not be as rewarding as a doctor but it has given me a comfortable lifestyle and I enjoy making people smile… even if it is just by pouring them a cup of coffee. 🙂
