Dollar General vs. Furlough

This past weekend I stopped in at the Dollar General near my house to purchase a few essentials.  When I checked out I was greeted by a lady approximately 35 years old with a cheery disposition and a smile J .   As she was scanning my items she asked me how I was etc. and I asked her if it had been busy for a Saturday?  She said yes!  Almost overwhelming!  She said she had only been there not quite two months and this was the busiest day yet!  I said only two months?  (She seem to be running the place)  She said yes that she was furloughed from her regular job at Applebees because of the Covid but she couldn’t just sit at home that she had to pay bills and take care of her babies!

I was so encouraged by hearing her story and feeling the passion that she had for her job at that very moment! Even though she had only been there only a short time!!  Instead of thinking that she could just take a break she chose to go out quickly and find another job.  But what really struck me as exceptional was that she now “owned” her job at Dollar General!  It didn’t take her long apparently to get in a groove and figure out how to make a living.
