GLOSSARY OF TEENAGE WORK TERMS
DELUXE--A way people like their burgers--with everything, sometimes with a few exceptions, don't forget to charge extra!
CHECKER/CARRYOUT: Two different positions at small-town grocery stores. Checker is a sometimes coveted position of supposed laziness that only the girls and old ladies get. I prefer to work carryout, characterized by its long days of facing, stocking and bathroom cleaning, as well as-- well, carrying out groceries. Usually only the boys work it but I like it better because it's way less boring.
FACE: To continually pull products to the front of the shelf and rearrange products so that they look neater. In other's (not necessarily my own) words: a waste of life.
FLATS: Black trays that hold 20, 50 or up to a hundred individual plants. I've spent quite a few hours washing these.
FLUFFING: To "fluff" the dirt around the plants, getting the moldy, flattened dirt freshened up and providing air to the plant.
H+B : Apparently, another name for the Health&Beauty section of the Grocery Store.
MESSUPS: Toppled ice cream cones, ruined shakes and sundaes--the less experience, the more messups. Kept in the freezer in the back. But SHHH! It's a secret. I take them home for my siblings to enjoy.
HELGA: The name of our ice cream machine. (Yes, our ice cream machine) It says so on her name tag. (Although there is another secret reason for her name tag) Helga can be pretty temperamental at times!
WALK IN: A large refrigerator that you can walk in. Duh! :)
#1, 2, 3 and so on: Greenhouses. I have a hard time keeping track of which one's which.
V-00: Value=$0 A coupon that has this number on it has absolutely no value. It's a fake!
I know this probably won't be much use to you. But congratulations on reading the full post!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, (look for a Thanksgiving post tomorrow)
