A typical day at work as a wading pool attendant was fun but extremely tiring. I had to be up before everyone to make sure that the pool was open for the kids for them to swim. The summer I did work for the city of Toronto, it was extremely hot. But the children made it all worth it, we played games in the water such as basketball, tag, marco polo. The parents really appreciated the fact that I showed interest in playing with their children and making sure that they had themselves a good time. Working for the city of Toronto, i learned how to open pools, I also learned a lot of rules about the pool that I never knew before. My Co-workers and supervisor were really nice, we used to plan games together and then ask the kids which games they wanted to play. The hardest part about the job was being out in the sun everyday with no shade for more than 5 hours. The most enjoyable part about the job was just being able to put a smile on some of these kids' faces, especially the kids that were the only children in their families that only came with their parents. We definitely made sure they had fun.
