Just because you’re the president’s daughter doesn’t mean you don’t have to get the requisite summer job bussing tables while you’re off school. The only difference is that when you spend the rest of the year in the White House, your summer job is at a seafood restaurant on swanky Martha’s Vineyard, you only work a four-hour shift in the morning when you won’t be bothered by any real people, and the whole thing lasts such a short time that your coworkers barely even notice you.
Those were the details of the gig Sasha Obama, the now 15-year-old daughter of Barack and Michelle, landed this summer, according to the Boston Herald. Using her full first name of Natasha, the youngest Obama has been working at Nancy’s Restaurant in Oak Bluffs – reportedly dealing with the takeout window, handling the register, bussing tables and prepping the seafood joint for lunch.
Oddly, though the Herald didn’t give an exact time frame, it doesn’t sound like Sasha was working there long; only “working until Saturday when her parents arrive for their two-week vacation.” One of Sasha’s coworkers at the takeout window told the Boston paper, “She’s been around for a few days… It’s pretty random.” A server had an equally confused take: “We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was.” Yeah, why is the entire line at the takeout window wearing earpieces and dark suits in the summer heat??
Still, it sounds like she’s doing a decent enough job to me. Four more years! Four more years!
