First, one idea in the essay that struck me as most convincing is the management.
"There are no secret economies that nourish the poor; on the contrary, there are a host of special costs."

Secondly, I will share one particular anecdote experience from my life about a lesson I learned while working. The place I work at now is grocery store called Kroger and my position there is Customer Service. Kroger is my first job that I got after graduating from high school. At first, I hated my job because I started as a courtesy clerk meaning a bagger. My seniority always told me to do things, I didn't want to do like cleaning the bathroom. After 2 months I was promoted to a cashier and I got some respect from my seniority. That shows you if you can be patience anything can happen like my promotion. Everyday when I am at work, customers would go up to my manager giving compliments about the way I talk to them. On my 18th birthday, I was working on that day out of nowhere my manager took me to the back of the front desk nad said "Congrats, Welcome to the Customer Service from today on this is your new position.


  1. i agree that patience definately pays off. i was in a similar position as you and now i am a manager, goodluck!

  2. I also experienced the same thing. I had to start off slow at first but after a while I was able to do more at work.

  3. You know what they say, "the patient dog eats the fattest BOnE."
