One Slice or Two

I am going to show you what I do at work.

This is the building where the bus drops me off.

It is called Myers Apartments. It is a place for older persons to live.

I work in the kitchen. The first thing I do each day is go all the way in the back to get a hair net.

I have to pull my hair back and tuck it in.

How do I look?

Then I go into the next room and get my gloves.

I wear a size medium.

Then I go ask what station I will be at today. It is usually packing bread or cookies. Today it is bread. So then I have to ask, "One slice or two?" It depends on what is on the menu. I have to go into the supply room and get a paper liner for the tray. Then I go into the freezer to get the bread and the butter.

I spread the pieces of bread out.

That makes the job of packaging easier.

Then I put one bread into the package.

And one butter. Then I tear it off.
I put the open end into the sealer. I have to be careful because it is hot. Then I push the handle until I hear it buzz. Then I take out the package and turn to put it on the rack.

Look at all these breads I did. I love doing this job. Below is a little video of me in action!!

Sarah, congrats on the job! You are one step closer to financial freedom than I am! Good Job sporting the hair net...maybe with all my hair falling out, it won't be a bad idea wearing one at home too when I'm cooking!
