I wouldn't trade it for any other life.

  • A decent human being is ashamed at being somebody's boss!

  • I was a hot-dog stand lady, I was an orphan housemother, I was a waitress 3 or 4 times. All of those jobs did not have good bosses. They basically told you what to do, when to do and when to hop. And I just didn't like that very much.
