I realized that physics relates to my job as I carry orders from the back to the front to give the customers. This applies to newton's third law because I'm applying force to the boxes and they are applying equal magnitudes in opposite directions. Also, the floor gets really slippery from the flour, spilled water, and toppings dropped like pepperoni and onion. This demonstrates the lack of friction because there is little to no friction between the bottom of my shoes and the floor. This applies to newton's second law of motion because when someone comes to sweep the floor they move it back and forth putting more force on the broom which makes it accelerate faster.

Believe it or not, you're not actually doing any work as you carry an order from the back to the front (at least from a physics standpoint).  We'll discuss it soon, but this will make a GREAT example!
