About this Episode

We've all had our "low points" on the job, moments when we were caught unprepared or off guard and we let our employers - and ourselves - down. Storyteller Wesley Hall Parker, who shared a story during the June 2015 All Y'all live storytelling event "Brush With Fame," experienced a Christmas Eve workplace crash-and-burn of epic proportions while working as a gift wrapper at San Francisco's Green Apple Books. As the title of her story implies, her workplace meltdown included some celebrity cameos.
