Why the Book???

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)

Why the Book???

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.

About Michael Moss

Biographical Info-
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.

    I decided to buy this book while browsing for a light funny read

    I decided to buy this book while browsing for a light funny read. This book is funny! The author, Michael, tells very short stories (each one is a few sentences) about comical experiences that have happened in his life as a teacher, an army guy, and my favorite, a Wal-Mart cashier—you know there has got to be some humor there! It is a quick read that will get you to smile and laugh out loud as we all can relate to many of his experiences.

    Once you start you won’t want to put the book down because you can’t wait to hear the next quip! I’ve read through it several times over the past couple of months, and I find it funny every time. I’d definitely recommend it for you or for a gift to someone who likes to laugh. Enjoy!
