It's a great day at Chick-Fil-A

Do you love food? Do you love nice people? Do you love free refills?

Then you love Chick-Fil-A

I don't know about your childhood, but the homeschool circles I grew up in literally revolved around Chick-Fil-A. We met there before volleyball games (and after too.) Any day trip or away game was planned strategically so that our lunch stop would just so happen to be at an exit where there was a Chick-Fil-A. We sold calendars to everyone and their cousin and a party was only good if there was a 120 count nugget tray on the table.

I'm not even joking either. We all really love CFA.

Literally everyone I knew worked there. And so one day when I went in with my friend for an interview, the manager asked me if I was interviewing too. Being the very strategic, planned out person that I am I replied, "No but I'm applying next week!"

The thought of working there hadn't even entered my mind 5.0 seconds ago, but sure. Why not.

I know Chick-Fil-A isn't the place for everyone, or even a job I'll want to have for too terribly long. But it has been wonderful to me in this season of life. First of all, money. Second of all, commitment. I shy away from commitment 90% of the time, thanks to my nomadic upbringing and chaotic, spur of the moment lifestyle. But it's been good and grounding for me to go to work, and to know I'll have to go (until I get fired lol)

(which almost happened once. Because of cake!)

(and we don't even sell cake)

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CHICKEN LIFE include but are not limited too:
-bruises in every possible place-
-almost getting fired for taking 3 cupcakes and 2 slices of cake from the birthday party-
-having a lizard run over my ankle (?? yes) while taking an order outside-
-farmers tan-
-working with my friends-
-until we got mad at one another-
-because working with your friends isn't always a good idea-
-tbt to the time an entire tower of bread fell on me-
-or when my manager sprayed whip cream all over my foot and I couldn't wipe it off for 20 minutes-
-having customers order lemon sugar water-
-becoming the shooting star employee from a falling star moment-

You'll probably never catch me in Bermuda shorts anywhere else but every day at Chick-Fil-A is a great day. (Even when you shoes are constantly coated in chicken nuggets and you have stress dreams about spicy deluxes.)
