YOUR BREAK IS OVER,  GRETEL !!

YOUR BREAK IS OVER, GRETEL !!

PONTIAC MICHIGAN

This is the Michigan Metroplex.
Before relocating, we toured the building and two of us lagged from the group.
In fact, we lagged way, WAY behind--
so much that we were yelled at and called Hansel and Gretel.
Since that day, she (my good friend, Barb--pictured) and I have proudly called
each other Hansel and Gretel. We hate this place!! It REALLY sucks.
Yeah, I know: I'm lucky I even have a job.
UPDATE: 28 plus years and I just got put on midnight shift. Unbelievable.
Barb retired December 2009. Couldn't take it any more.

Nikon D70s
1/800s f/7.1 at 50.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I'm glad I don't have to work in that sucky place. How did you do it for so many years?

Do you get into the movies for free since you work at the Metroplex? Sorry, I'll show myself out.

-7 ! They should give you the day off when it's that cold. I'd take the light bulb changer job just to stay inside. With almost 1,000 light fixtures there's sure to be some burn outs each day. A nice shot, Hansel
