Tired...

3 days in 100 degree weather working concessions = TIRED!! But I am not complaining....I really do love it! But it was H.O.T.!!! That little A/C unit just cannot compete with friers cooking and the 100 degree weather. You know it's bad when you have to stick your head out of the trailer to cool off! ha!
It was a good weekend. We had great help - thanks to Jared, Kristen, Tanner and Kevin's mom. Family is awesome and teenagers needing money is really awesome! LOL!
Kevin got numerous compliments on how his BBQ was "the best they had ever eaten". One lady on two separate days got 5 sandwiches so she could eat them for breakfast and dinner too!! Seriously! Out of three days of serving, we only had one unhappy customer because we didn't accept checks. I admit I was surprised and thrown by the rudeness and let it bother me entirely too much. I know you can't make everyone happy, but why be so rude unnecessarily? We had so many positives over the weekend, but it is amazing how much more a negative can stand out. Hmmm.....
But then, on the way home, we were on the receiving end of a random act of kindness. Get this - we are pulling the smoker and the nut comes off the ball/hitch somehow/somewhere??? So, we stop at a truck stop and a random stranger GIVES us his ball/hitch thingy and takes ours that is missing a nut. And, we trucked it on home. HOW NICE!! Thank you random stranger!! We will pass it on!
God is good ALL the time! :-)

Who writes a check for concessions?? Is it just me or is it totally crazy that she expected you to accept one??
