Hey kids, here’s what they don’t tell you

You know those summer jobs you are trying to line up? Well, of course, the money is the big attraction.

And you probably have heard all you care to about acquiring a work ethic, building character and what not.

But there's something else you need to consider.

Summer jobs can be a source of treasured anecdotes you will tell for years and years.

Horrible boss? Don't fret. Makes a good story.

Insane co-workers? Same.

Angry customers? Ditto. 

Why, you yourself might even wind up being the creative genius behind some memorable workplace antics.

So don't view your seasonal employment as mind-numbing, soul-stealing drudgery. Think of it as a source of material.
