Dear Reader.

So, the best way to get into writing is to write about something you know.  That's the approach I'm going to take today.  And the topic I feel I know a bit about is my job.

I've been working at the Salt Lake International Airport for a company called HMS Hosts for just a touch over eight years now.  We manage about half of the food places throughout the airport, but I think I've got one of the cake jobs.  I'm in Accounting, where I stay in an office setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the travelers and other workers out there.  I don't think I'd trade that job for any other, inside my company or out, for anything. 

And while there are lots of perks to my job... one of the best things is just watching people.  There is the potential for lots of drama while people are working their way through TSA screening, but once their through, they can settle down a bit.

That said, I have seen the police throwing the handcuffs on unruly passengers.  Don't be fooled, TSA is one thing, but those police officers are full-fledged enforcers of the law, and they will send you to jail if you deserve it.  Nothing will ruin your vacation or your business trip faster than having to bail out of jail before you even get started.

And lastly, I'm routinely the only person in my office.  This is awesome because I can listen to the radio or whatever music I wish.  This means that I can... and have listened to the "Hamilton" soundtrack more than is probably healthy.  But I do it and sing along with no shame whatsoever.

Can you do that at your job?
