This is all in addition to working another full-time job with the school system in the cafeteria. Shelly has two beautiful daughters and the cutest granddaughter.

He is a true gentleman and goes out of his way to keep the coolers well organized so the girls don’t have to do any lifting. Masons number one customer comment is always about how he is always smiling no matter what. Mason’s funniest memory at work is the day the car-wash doors closed on him while he was cleaning it and he could not figure how to get out. His advice is to never panic when you get a rush, just provide good customer service one at a time. Joel Wright, who answers to JS, has been employed with Stinker for 6 years. He loves watching football, GO BOISE STATE. JS keeps the store clean and organized. His advice for any new employee would be to please always put the feather duster back in its proper place.
