*rumble* the business of the stomach is directly correlated to money....

I'm not talking about the thunder. I'm talking about my stomach. Until today I didn't know what it was like to go hungry for a day and not know where your next gas money will come from. We live in such uncertain times. I never thought I would be hit so hard. Work is scarce even if you have a job.
Here I am writing about a feeling that some people have every day. Who am I to talk if others are in a worse place. As the saying goes. If you think things are bad in your life its always worse for someone else. I don't remember who said it or the exact wording but I think you get the picture.
I hate that feeling in the pit of your stomach. Growling and rumbling away as it churns at your breakfast and prepares for your lunch. But what if you didn't have breakfast or lunch. Then your stomach lets out a loud growl like a lion that hasn't had prey in days or a bear that just woke from its slumber.

In any case, I have a potential money bucket coming my way. Soon I hope. But for me work is more than the money. I have discovered that one of my many missions in life is to make sure that customer service is at its best. I have observed at many stores and restaurants that the people that were hired to serve feel like they can talk to their clients-I prefer the term guests-in any way they please. Thus they loose business really quickly.

Losing business is like being hungry. You have so much you wish to give but no one to give it to. Thus so much food you would like to taste and no money to buy it.
