Steve is desperate for a lot of things. He is desperate to get out of his mother’s house and all of the things that come with it: rubbing feet, applying ointment and being yelled at daily. Leaving home is easier said than done. As Steve goes from job to job getting fired time after time and hearing those same words, “Maybe this isn’t the job for you” he starts to get discouraged. Until he walks into the HelllllllP Daycare. A place where the people are strange and the children are stranger. But when he starts working with the 2-4 year olds he is faced with a list of challenges: a lazy coworker, his mother that won’t go away, children that are…different and an incident that turns Steve from worker to detective. The characters are fun and the story is hilarious. Steve ends the day with a job that he loves and realizes that being a teacher of sorts isn’t half bad.
