Joining the Crew...

I have an interview at McDonald's tomorrow at 11:15.  I just got the call from the manager a moment ago.  This was an online application where I had to take a test.  She said I scored a "green" on the test.  The job would be in Opelika, Alabama which is about a thirty minute drive from my home.  She basically said I was hired and asked me for my pants and shirt size for the uniform.  The interview would be a formality.   I am so scared.  I got so nervous my hands and knees started to shake.  I haven't worked in years.  This would be such a big step for me and my independence.

I forgot to say that your nervousness is natural. Everyone is scared starting a job. How does dad feel?

Okay, everyone will call me Debbie Downer, but... gas is going to cost you about 10 bucks a day at least. You'll be making about 7 bucks an hour. After fed/state taxes and fica you'll bring home about 175 bucks a week less 50 bucks for gas, so you'll clear a whopping $125/wk. You'll be cranky and tired all the time and won't have time to blog. I give you 3 weeks max. You are probably clearing 225 bucks a weeks right now on disability doing nothing. I realize you don't see any of it because your father keeps it, but nonetheless, don't shoot yourself in the foot. People would kill to be in your shoes.
