"Mom," Karen Brewer said one Saturday morning. "Can I get a job?"
"A job?" Mrs. Engle nearly choked on her bagel. "For you? Karen, honey, I can't imagine you doing work."
"Mom," Karen pouted. "I need money to buy a car."
"We just got you a glittery pink brand-new convertible for your sixteenth birthday," Mrs. Engle said. "Why would you need a new car?"
"I found out that my car only costs eighty thousand dollars," Karen explained. "I need to have the most expensive car in the entire school. Dad's a millionaire...but he's such a cheapskate. I mean, come on, eighty thousand dollars for a car? How cheap!"
Mrs. Engle shook her head and sighed. She knew Karen was very spoiled since her father, Watson Brewer, was quite very wealthy.
"What job do you have in mind?" Mrs. Engle asked.
"A waitress at McDonald's," Karen tossed back her golden hair and her blue eyes sparkled. "I can see it now: I, dressed in a baby pink uniform-consisting a matching blouse and mini-skirt-trimmed with white lace, white lacy pantyhose, and shiny black heels. On my full white apron, 'Karen' would be printed in pink laced cursive."
Mrs. Engle chuckled to herself. Karen lived in a fantasy rather than a reality. She knew a waitress wouldn't dress like that-especially at McDonald's!
"So, I'm going to a job interview at McDonald's, all right?" Karen said.
"All right. Good luck, have fun, and be careful!" Mrs. Engle warned.
Karen could hardly wait till her job interview!
