tonight's our christmas party...i will be there
here's my wish list...does anyone even care?

one way the boss could give me some christmas
cheer
a nice raise would be nice...like sometime this year

another way that he could make me smile
hire help that will stay with me a while

am i that bad to work for? am i a bitch?
i didn't think so...i'm really not a witch

because i ask them to do something, they get sore
the job means getting ice, cleaning, other chores

i have to answer the phone, ring people up
why can't they get ice, clean, get glasses and cups?

have to stay near the register--that's my job
"one person per drawer" to handle the mobs

because hungry customers want the buffet
crud--three buses just pulled in, add to the fray

where's the boss? in his office, he's on the phone
hate being left up on the line, all alone--

i'm jack of all trades, but am master of none
usually enjoy my job, and have fun

but when i'm busy...and totally stressed out
i really could use the help...without a doubt!!

christmas is near, gift certificates i sell
food temps i take, many other jobs as well

checking off the truck another thing i do
a crew leader and trainer...that is me, too!

i can survive off the money i make...thank God
bills take most my pay...do you find that odd?

i only make seven dollars an hour
can i have a bonus? that's in his power!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

my help quit--AGAIN. which means i was left
on the line (cashier area) all by myself...the
manager helped, when he was able...it was
pretty busy, i was starving, and needed a
smoke...no, have to stay on the line. then,
the evening help called in...had to stay lat-
er than usual. arrggghhhh...i want a raise!!

Oh gosh Karla, another one of those days! And you deserve a raise honey. You really do. I wish I could kick him the butt and get you that raise. Doggone it. Cheer up Karla. I just know things will be different and better for both of us. Your friend. Bill Murray (((hugs)))

Someone above us all sees everything and what we go through...I know it doesn't begin to help now, but soon and someday it will be added up and you shall be blessed in turn.
