Everyone is different: different race, different colors, different dress codes. Black. White. Lovers. Some work in huge buildings; in the more conservative ones, they wear suits and ties. Others work fast food, coffee shops, food trucks, and convenience stores (your ultimate one-stop shop). I work for Street Sense Media, on the corner. I say, “God bless you” and “Have a nice day” with a smile. It’s a job that doesn’t pay well, and sometimes I wish I were paid the same as those with “nicer” jobs. But, it’s my job for now, so I would love to have your support.
