Today I was getting caught up on some work at this Antique store/ coffee shop next to our hotel... I actually loved the atmosphere. It was almost like I’m sitting at grandmas kitchen table with the cloth table cloths that are covered in a daisy print and plastic tablecloth on top of that. My chair was a comfy vintage mustard yellow chair.... just delightful.
Well today the owners husband walks in and is bringing in “new” old stuff to sell. 👴🏻He was a spunky white haired man and we made eye contact because I was the only one in the coffee shop part of their big store and I had stopped working for that split second to take a sip of my coffee. 👩🏼💻☕️
He said, “Hi how are you? Whatcha studying for over there?”.
I responded, “hello, I’m not studying I graduated years ago... I’m workin!” 🙋🏼
He said surprised, “oh. Ok, well who is it that’s making you work so hard over there? Who do you work for?” 👴🏻
I timidly responded, “myself”.💁🏼
He said “what is that?” And made me repeat...
“Myself, I work for myself”, I said.🙎🏼
I could tell he was bit surprised considering he thought I was a student...
After a pause he chuckled and said, “ well that seems like the best person to be working for!” 👴🏻
I agree. 💃 Wouldn’t want to have any other boss but the one I have now. 😉
