First cookies, then smoothies, now vitamins.

by jl333 on March 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

From the time I started working for various families, I'd always write up a working contract. And in the contract, when I first started, I requested freshly baked cookies every week. 10 years later, I started requesting smoothies. Now, I've entered a different phase in my life...and now will start requesting that whom ever employs me will supply me with a years supply of vitamins. Much more better for me, and definitely better for out of pocket expenses on their part. And on a side note, I had to take a photo of the vitamins upside down, to get an upright photo. Hope it worked!
