Provocative Question #119 by Five Dot Oh
What is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned in life and who did you learn it from?
The lesson that comes to mind is one that I learned when I started my first job at 16 years old. There was not one person that I learned this from. It was learned from a group of teenage guys that I worked with on different occasions as the only girl stocker.
I had been working for several weeks about three nights a week and weekends. I was stuck having to clean both the bathrooms every night while the guys did dust mopping and other such chores.
This got really old really fast. One evening I walked into work and and received my list of chores for the night. Once again I saw that I was on bathroom detail.
I was not happy to say the least. I got tears in my eyes which happens when I get really angry. I absolutely hate when this happens, it always pisses me off even more.
I stepped into the managers office. I told him what I thought about my having to clean the bathrooms every night I worked while the guys did other easier tasks.
I assured them that anything they had the guys doing I was more than capable of doing. I also assured them that I thought the guys were more than qualified to clean both the men’s and women’s bathrooms.
They said I could have the night off if I wanted. They assured me that they would make things more equal in the future.
Needless to say the guys did not enjoy their new housekeeping task of bathroom beautification. When the women’s’ bathrooms were really nasty they would always beg me to have mercy on them….heehee I never gave in to their whining.
