A school dinner lady

Mrs Potts works in a school serving dinner to all the children. She has to start work at 6:00 a.m. and does not finish until 2:30 p.m. Mrs Potts prepares all the food, and serves all the meals. After all the meals have been served she also must clean up at the end of her shift. She likes her job and she makes good money, but sometime the students are difficult to control. Some of them try to jump ahead of the other children when they are standing in line. Some of them spill things on the floor, and Mrs Potts has to clean up the mess. A few students are slow and hold up the line. On the weekend, Mrs Potts likes to cater parties. Last weekend, she catered a wedding for forty six people. She charged eighteen pound a head, and had three hundred and fifty five pound left after paying all the bills. Mrs Potts is happy when she makes a good profit as she wants to go on holiday in the summer.
