Britten also likes the fact that she’s learned to get along with other people professionally.

“You have to be positive all the time, and the variety of customers are interesting as well,” she said. “Everyone is different, so you have to be professional; even if it’s just hot dogs.” 

Since she is unemployed throughout the rest of the year, she plans to continue working there. The only thing that bothers her is the heat of the food and the hot temperature outside. Still, she looks on the bright side and doesn’t mind preparing hot dogs for the visitors of the State Fair.
