Hey guys, my name is Laura.
00:09
And today I'll be talking to you about my work history.
00:12
My very first job was at nine West and I was a sales associate
00:16
and that's when I realized that I did not like working.
00:18
I was 16 and then I worked as a receptionist.
00:21
I don't remember the name of the company, but I was only there
00:23
for two weeks.
00:24
They fired me because I dropped a stapler.
00:26
Then I worked at anthropology as a sales associate and like
00:29
each section was a different woman and one section I remember
00:32
them telling me this is Francis and she's French.
00:35
She's absolutely fabulous.
00:37
She loves print.
00:38
She loves to feel good about herself.
00:40
That's why she likes these mugs and it, it was just, it was just
00:43
too much for me.
00:44
I couldn't do it.
00:45
Then I worked at Aldo shoe store and I was a cashier there and
00:48
I loved it because I didn't do anything.
00:49
All I had to do was deal with like the cash register.
00:52
I didn't have to get shoes for people.
00:53
I didn't have to look at other sizes.
00:55
I was like, bitch give me your money.
00:56
Thank you here to change.
00:58
Now, I've never been good at math.
00:59
So thank God that, you know, they had a little there.
01:02
Thank you calculator and technology.
01:04
After that, I worked at BC PG.
01:06
That, that was the worst job I've ever had because I was really
01:10
ratchet in it.
01:10
I remember one time I was working two jobs at the time and I was
01:15
so tired that I took off my shoes.
01:17
I was on my phone and I was drinking water when a lady came up
01:20
to me and she was like, oh oh never mind.
01:24
And I was like, oh no, no, no, I work here.
01:26
What do you want?
01:27
What do you do?
01:27
You like something?
01:28
And like I didn't have any shoes on.
01:30
I was drinking water and I was texting at the same time and she's
01:32
like, you work here and I'm like, yes bitch, I'll work here
01:34
What do you want?
01:35
And she's like, I, I know nothing.
01:36
And then she told I'm my manager and then um I got fired, which
01:40
is fine because I didn't wanna be there anyway.
01:42
Ok?
01:43
Then I worked at Cantina Laredo which is a restaurant.
01:46
I was a server.
01:46
It was my very first time being a server.
01:48
I told the manager that I had a lot of serving experience.
01:52
I did not.
01:52
But then I had a friend who was a bartender.
01:54
She was always giving me drinks.
01:55
So you know your girl was a little tipsy sometimes.
01:58
No one ever caught me.
02:00
I mean, I'm sure they smelled it a little bit on me.
02:03
I gave them their food.
02:04
Right.
02:04
Don't complain.
02:05
And then I moved to L A and I worked at La Scala in Beverly Hills
02:08
and I loved everyone that I worked with.
02:11
Everyone was super, super nice.
02:13
But the owner was such a bitch.
02:16
Oh, I felt that when I said it too, She was awful.
02:20
I couldn't go inside the restaurant.
02:22
If I had one out of place, I couldn't paint my nails.
02:25
I can't do anything.
02:26
She treated everyone really bad.
02:28
Thank you Jesus.
02:29
That I'm out of there.
02:30
I told her my grandma was sick and I was trying to go visit her
02:32
She said no, I was like, ok, I'm putting my two weeks in because
02:35
I am nice.
02:36
The reason I hated working these jobs is because it was not
02:39
what I wanted to do.
02:40
I wanted to be an actress.
02:41
I wanted to be a writer.
02:42
I wanted to be a producer.
02:43
I wanted to do everything that had nothing to do with customer
02:46
service.
02:47
I don't, I like people complaining to me.
02:48
I like to complain.
02:49
I don't need someone else complaining to me.
02:51
I'm enough.
02:52
So finally when I got me, it was just, this is the happiest I've
02:56
ever been working at a job because I'm doing exactly what I
02:59
wanted to do.
03:00
What I graduated from, I graduated with a B FA in theater performance
03:04
and now I'm here working at this incredible job doing exactly
03:07
what I'm meant to do.
03:09
So, what have been your work experiences?
03:12
Where have you guys worked?
03:13
What was your favorite place or?
03:15
What was the worst place?
03:17
Oh, man.
03:17
If I get fired from here and people see this, like they're gonna
03:21
think I'm not a good worker.
03:24
Oh God.
03:25
OK.
03:26
Thank you, everyone.
03:29
My dad does that.
03:31
Ok.
