Hey guys, as you can tell by the title of the post, this gonna have to do with pancakes. So this past weekend, my Young Marines hosted a pancake breakfast fundraiser. The purpose of the fundraiser was to raise money for our national encampment to Florida this summer. We were all assigned jobs some people had to serve food, some had to buss tables (which basically meant they had to go around asking people if they wanted more food because it was an all-you-can-eat type of thing), others had to serve coffee, and there was the kids who got stuck with KP duty (cleaning dishes and what not). Guess what got? KP duty. At first it was ok…. then the dishes started to come in faster.
I have never washed some many dishes in such a little amount of time in my life! You guys might not think it’s that bad or I’m whining to much, WELL I’m NOT!!! You try to stand for two hours doing nothing but washing and drying dirty dishes only to get more poured in while you’re still washing. It was kinda fun washing the dishes though, cause there was this hose thing (which we are all tempted to spray each other with) which was like the best part of washing dishes, because if we got a dirty dish with something stuck on it that we couldn’t get off, we’d just hose it off. After awhile, my hands started to smell like chlorine, this is because the cleaning process had to do with bleach. Here’s the order of the cleaning process (from right to left), the hose thing, a sink full of water with dish soap, then two sinks full of water and bleach to dip them in, and then finally came the drying part. Luckily, I was swapped out with some other kids and was moved to serving food. All I had to do was ask people if they wanted toast, which turned out ok, but at the end of the day, my legs were extremely sore. All in all, it was a good day, I had fun, and I got free food.
