Renee Masur was a Food Preparation Worker

I worked at a Chinese Food Restaurant for many of my teenage years. Not really my favourite job, but it was a paycheck. The reason I give this an apathetic face is because of the family I worked for. They were fun, sweet, and truly hardworking. I haven't worked there for a couple years, but I still go see them every Christmas Eve. It's now a tradition.
