You're lucky to get a job, many adults are unemployed and they /need/ a job. It will only be part time and not all customers are grouchy. You're getting paid to cook and serve food, so I don't see what the problem is. If you don't like working with food for any reason, you don't have to eat at McDonalds if you don't want to. And I'm sure you're hygienic.
I'm 14 and I want a job but it's ridiculously difficult to find one at my age (laws, recession and such) so I've turned to online marketing/business (my website is still under construction but I've set up Offerpal and gWallet and I'm set to get Adsense when the site's complete) until I turn 15. I'm a vegan but I'd definitely work at McDonalds.
I'm guessing that what it will take to dissuade them of this is to find another job you would actually prefer, that isn't dead-slow most of the time. you obviously have the kind of parents that search for their idea of specific character-building attributes in the decisions they make for you. yer almost out of their range though, just a couple more years.. unless they try and decide your career too, and you actually listen.
hey, don't get me wrong, i agree with you. fast food specifically.. that's just so weird.
thanks And you're right, my parents are all about character building and getting me ready for the world..and they just NOW decide to do that I probably would have been better off now if they had began teaching me better work ethic when i was younger. I just don't feel quit ready for that yet, so when they suddenly start pushing me forward like this it's kind of scary. I still feel like a kid.
From my point of view, I think it must be your choice. Not only who are you going to work for, but also where will you live.
For example, this december I will finish college, so I expect to be working next January. But I'm pretty picky: still haven't decided about a specific company, but I do want it to be away from where I live now, and with enough income to live well by myself.. Probably you can't decide here because it might not be a priority for you.
My parents say OK, as long as my decision doesn't revolve around leaving them just for the sake of it (long story, though it's more about where we live). I just hope they will eventually support my decision...
