Storyline

Mama's in a funk because she met one of her aunts, "who's three days older than God," but has a job. Mama's never worked outside the house in her life, so Vint and Naomi talk her into applying at an employment agency. Sure enough, she actually gets a position at the Raytown Travel Agency as a "mature" receptionist for travel agents, but it doesn't take long for her personality -- and frequent calls from home -- to get her into hot water.

Mama Gets a Job!
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mama Harper is upset because Aunt Effie has a job at the courthouse as a file clerk. Naomi suggests hobbies but then suggests that she gets a job herself. Thelma has not really had much of an education. She hasn't finished high school nor college experience. She has finished grade school which was not unusual in her generation. Anyway, she gets a job at the Raytown Travel Agency. Her first day is Saturday which would be fine if it wasn't for the constant interruptions of her family. Mama knows how to answer the phone and make coffee but she offends an elderly couple whose children are sending them to Tahiti. There are some hysterical lines and worth watching again.
