It was a job at McDonald's for Pete's sake! Who gets fired from flipping burgers? And who cares if they get fired from flipping burgers? Nobody likes to smell like burger grease at the end of the day anyway, because when you go out on a date the girls don't say to you, "You smell so nice."

But mum and dad will get really mad, I know. They will say that it shows I lack responsibility and a work ethic. So I didn't go right home. I drove around town for two hours and got home just when I would have if I'd been working all afternoon.

But I didn't smell like burger grease, so mom knew I hadn't been at work.


"Where have you been?" she said.

I told her I was fired from McDonald's and waited for her to yell at me.

She smiled and said, "There will be other jobs," and "Do you want some apple pie with ice cream?"

I think someone stole my mum.

Clever ending. Be sure to watch out for your apostrophes in contractions (didn't, as opposed to didnt, etc)

Oh...and it's "work ethic" :)
