Lazy Landscaping Losers

In all of my years in the landscaping business, I’ve never had an experience quite as embarrassing as the green walls fiasco. Long story short, be wary about hiring a couple of young, apple-cheeked high school students, just because they can write up a nice resume. The incident in question occurred when I was on a relatively ho hum landscaping job, for a client that owned a series of condos who wanted some hedges planted. Because we were using the instant variety, the youngsters were complete unaware of how to conduct themselves in this set of circumstances. For the sake of my business, I’d rather not tell you precisely what they did, but I can promise you that a couple of phone calls were made. The moral of the story, is to be careful exactly who you’re hiring, and be mindful of exactly what they’re getting themselves into.

Salad’s Up?

I’m a Sous chef for a small catering business. We can go weeks with little to do, then be hit with six events on the same night. The frequent lulls cause many of our event staff London to seek other employment – so when crunch time comes – we may spend an evening bumping into newbies hired just days before.

On one such evening, I was creating a salad when a new server arrived and politely asked to help. I assumed a certain skill level, gave her a few instructions then walked away to plate the appetizers. Halfway through I looked over to check the new hire. What was supposed to be 120 individual salads was overflowing from a single stainless-steel bowl. I have no idea what she read from my face, but something “clicked” and she turned the entire bowl over her head. Instant friends!

What is an actor’s day like

Being an actor may sound glamorous, but it’s a job. And for all but a few of the most A-list Hollywood actors, it’s a job that doesn’t pay a lot and is a lot of work. But it can be very rewarding, because each day can be different.

No matter where your acting job is: on a set or on location, your day is likely to start off with a visit to the wedding makeup artist Manchester, who will make you look glamorous — or hideous — depending on the part. You might also have to visit with a costume person. After that, the day will be filled with shooting scenes, with as many takes as it takes to get it right. You might get a few breaks when the crew is shooting scenes that don’t involve you. Days can be long and might go 12 hours or more.

Never Tasted Better

There is a stream that runs behind my house. It is filled with small fish, stones, and tiny insects that float across the top. On warm days, I would sit by the stream and soak my bare feet in the clear and cool water. The refreshing feeling filled my body up with glee.

One day, I sat by the stream on an extremely hot afternoon. The sun rays beamed down on my head and clothes with a force that was as hot as an oven. I wiped beads of sweat from my forehead and tried to breathe in fresh air. After a while of fighting the heat, the cool stream before me began to look very inviting. I reached down to cup a small amount of the fresh water in my hand. Intending to drink the coolness, I brought my hand to my mouth. Suddenly, I heard the voice of my mother.

I dropped my hand and turned to see my mother running towards me with a stern look. She sat down beside me and explained that the stream water could not be safe to drink. I could get sick. Instead, she constructed a water filtration media before me with materials like rocks, sand, and a special treatment soil. Then, she filtered the stream water through the media before handing a small amount out for me to drink. At that moment, water never tasted better!
