Yesterday was one of the most miserable days of my life. I decided to help out a family friend by working her booth at the Nascar race Sunday. I arrived at the speedway, 5am, no sleep from the night before. I babysat the night before and had gotten no sleep. I showered and got ready at that house and then drove straight to the raceway. Then I had to work a booth right next to the busiest gate from 5am - 9pm. I only had one break and it was only 20 minutes long. I only got to eat once, a PB&J Smucker's Uncrustable around 10am. The three teens helping me at the booth were assholes and kept leaving me to walk around and watch the race. They left me alone, to tend to one of the busiest booths there. We made around 15grand in that little booth (I hope that gives an example as to how busy it was.) My legs were hurting, my feet ached, my legs were beginning to chaff, I was hungry, hot and mostly tired since I had been up since 9am Saturday morning. No one was willing to help me at the booth. By the time it came for inventory at the end of the night, the three others weren't doing anything and that is when I had it. I took my things and said "Peace out" as I walked out of the trailer and to my car; which was parked about a mile away. I then walked, my body completely numb by the pain of the day with my arms full. I dragged my folding chair behind me and carried my paper bag from Trader Joe's full of crap and just cried all the way to my car. There were people in golf carts that were driving people back and forth from the trailers to the employee lot but every person that I flagged down on my walk ignored me and wouldn't stop. Making my day worse. Working Nascar was not worth the money I made but didn't get that night. My friend told me that I would be paid cash at the end of the night but there was no sign of her pass 1pm and she never answered her cell phone.

So now it's Monday morning, I'm at work and still hurting. My legs and feet still ache, and I woke up to swollen eyes. It think the eyes are a result of staying awake for 2 days and crying. Yesterday was the worst day of my life.

It will be worth the pain when you get that 3-4 grand that you worked for.

I used to work those things at random festivals(no NASCAR though) and would be dead at the end of it all, but the money was well worth it.

But I think if someone asked me to work a NASCAR event I would tel them to get bent... all you would hear all day long is

"i wont a curz lyt puhlese"
or
"gimme a yalla belly"......what?

I still love you mozabilly54.

Thanks.

I apologize to all for "whining" on this board about it but I just had to get it out. It was horrible. I knew what I was getting into because I work merch booths for bands at concerts all the time but this was really bad. Mainly because of the stupid idiot teens that I was stuck working with.

It's not Nascar's fault. It's the fact that I can't sleep at other people's houses when I babysit. I don't want them to come home and find me zonked out on their couch.

What part of "would you like to work at a NASCAR event" made you think it wouldn't suck?

you should have paid yourself with some of the cash you collected and left a receipt for payment.
