Welcome to my job

Oh, look at this nice car lot! They have great used cars. Here are some more. LOL! We actually do have one of the largest Buy Here Pay Here lots in the area. Of course I was not going to photograph the whole thing.

This is a main attraction in our lobby. People just love the old gas pump and of course alway comment on the gas price.... 29 cents a gallon. We wish................
What car lot do you know that has a drive up window? You can just drive on in and make your payment. Some days it is like Burger King around here and the line just extends out in the road.

The real reason that we have a drive thru is because this building used to be a bank. See the vault. Pretty cool.
This is my desk. Yes, I know I need to clean it off. I had some cute little candy dishes and stuff but it all just got in the way. I need to spice it up a little.
Here are two of our advertising cars. We also use them to loan out to customers when we are having work done on their car. Even though all cars we sell are "As is, no warranty" we do try to help out if the car is in need of repair. Aren't we nice?

Here is our payment counter. This is original from the old bank too.

Here is Dixie. She comes to work everyday. She is our greeter. All we have to do is say, "Dixie go do your job" and she will go out and greet the customers. She has her own car- the Dixie car- with her picture on it. And she has this golf cart. She love going for rides in the golf cart. Here she is with her birthday hat!
I really love my new job. It is such a change from what I have been doing for so many years. I work for the most wonderful people. I also meet the most interesting people on a daily basis. As they say- it takes all kinds to make the world go round! LOL!

Dixie's glowing eyes in the last shot make her look like a demon... but at least she has a cheery smile!

Oh, I will have to post pictures of the baddogs in birthday hats!

Actually, my dream firm is one that allows me to bring a dog into work. I used to be *terrified* of all dogs, but now I realize how much of a blessing they can be!

Former banks are such beautiful and unique structures. A favorite restaurant used to be a bank, and I love seeing all the bank details remaining!

I'm so glad that you are enjoying your job! The place looks really fun and interesting! I bet it is always busy. We just bought a new used car and love it! I actually thought of you when I was buying it!

Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Sharon
