Career advice from a 14-year-old

We were talking about places the kids can work when they get a little older. I told them they were lucky to have so many places near us where they could get a job.

“You could work at Target or Marsh or Subway…” I offered.

“I’m gonna work at a video game store,” said Charlie.

“But, you could a bag boy at the grocery," I said. "That would be a great job for you. You get to move around and go outside all day.”

“Nope,” Charlie insisted. “I’m gonna work at a video game store.”

Which is when Annie chimed in.

“Charlie, at least at the grocery store you could meet girls. At the video game store, you’ll only meet geeks.”

Holy cow! You know what that means? Annie knows the best places to meet, gasp!, boys!

Annie should be a psychologist. She's got base motivations down pat.

I'm thinking maybe you should encourage the video store! MUCH safer!

I like the way she thinks! You've got a smart one :)
