    Reality check. Sense of pride.

    paper cuts and sore feet!

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the high schools in an organized manner. The summer I spent as a bagger gave me my first taste of what it's like to be accountable to someone who didn't have an interest in my success. That's a reality check every kid needs.
