Can The Office Scribe Also Be The Bar Scribe?

The title of this post was a question posed to me by my sainted mother...

So a friend of my mom's is opening up an English pub up near where she lives and guess what, they offered me a job. Now seeing as how I did go to bartending school and spend over nine years as a butcher, you would think that this would be the best possible job in the world for me. Instead of sitting in a bland cubicle I could be pouring pints and baking Cornish pasties for pub patrons.

So you are probably wondering what has stopped me from throwing all of my work possesions into a box and booking it for this soon-to-be-opened establishment? Well, aside the pub not offering me any sort of medical coverage my mom lives an hour and a half away from me. I only get up to her place a few times a month.

But I didn't turn it down either.

So folks, I soon hope to bring you exciting news and tales from something called a second job. Apprently people obtain second jobs when they are in poor economic straights, like me, or want to make their lives better through the purchase of a new automobile, also like me. I have never had more than one job at a time and I am looking forward to it. And seeing as how my mom will be working there too I won't actually be sacraficing quality family time either.

Best of both worlds*? An office job and a bar job?

I think so.

I hope you don't get the jobs mixed up and start pouring drinks at the office and stapling people at the bar or something.
