I began teaching in 1990 as a substitute…the money wasn’t great, so my driving force suggested I get a second job…I applied at a local Walmart Super Center and was hired in October of 1992. (I still work for them on a part-time basis, which means I have no life whatsoever).
Over the years, there have been so many stories—unbelievable, amusing, whatever. Friends would tell me to write a book about teaching, Walmart, General Dynamics (Electric Boat Division), and my year in Vietnam…
I’m thinking…“Who really cares? Who would read it? Will an agent/publisher approve or will I become familiar with the word ‘rejection?’ I’m just an average guy.”
Well, it’s time for the law of averages…Enjoy!
It’s Only Paper
Many customers request cash back when they use a debit card. If they request $100.00, I ask them if they want 20s or a hundred dollar bill.
If they say they want a big bill, depending on their mood, I might remind them that they only come in one size.
Author Michael Moss
He was born and raised in New London, Connecticut. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English at now defunct Windham College in Putney, Vermont, where he was mentored by the wrestling coach and author, John Irving. He began teaching in Florida and currently lives with his wife, Janette, in Henderson, Nevada.
I met Janette in Fort Lauderdale in March of 1980…
Isn’t it coincidental that the Yankees just happened to conduct Spring Training there??? She took a day off so she could spend it with me on my birthday…so what did I do???? We’re sitting poolside at the hotel, where a lot of the Yankees stayed…I excused myself to get my camera and photo album and spent some time talking with Graig Nettles and Ron Guidry…
Lou Piniella walked by and accidentally touched her foot. I told her she was not showering for a few days. Somehow, she STILL married me a few months later on the Fourth of July.
There is a picture on a table as you enter our house…it’s Janette with Yankee owner George Steinbrenner…many people think he’s her father…that would’ve been interesting.
