My Experience and Gains in Summer Holiday
As a college student, I have much leisure time during my summer holiday so that I would like to take a part-time job as many of my friends, which can widen my horizon and enrich my life. Last summer, I was recommended by one of my classmates to a Chinese fast-food restaurant where I could take a temporary job as a mess boy.Obviously, such a job offered a good opportunity for me to contact the society.
Early in the morning I cleaned the restaurant with others. First, we swept and
mopped the floor where much leftover was on. It was very disgustful for me to do such a task, and I thought people should be to save food because many in poor families could not be fed. Consequently, I began to realize I should form a good habit of saving food during each meal while I hadn't before. Second, I helped to serve the customers. In other words, they ordered their dishes and waited at their tables, then I would deliver the ordered food to them from the kitchen. During lunch time, many people came and it was my busiest time of a day. I must entertain people who had just come, and paid attention to the dishes having been ordered by former customers. Once I made a mistake that I delivered the wrong food to an old lady who didn’t complain me at all. I was in great embarrassment, and I learned a lesson that it is vital to concentrate on what is being done. Third, sometimes in the afternoon, I, along with others, helped the cook to wash vegetables and prepared for dinner. It was completely a new attempt because I had never did so in my families, and it was regarded as my parents’ task. Later, I even learned how to cook, and my parents sang highly praise for it. In the evening I went home at 22:00 after a day of hard but interesting job. That was one day of my part-time job.
To sum up, I gained a lot from it, and I wish I could have more experiences in
future summer holiday.
