Growing up in the White House (opens in new tab) is anything but a normal childhood experience, but there's one teenage rite of passage Sasha Obama won't miss out on: the less-than-glamorous summer job.

This month Sasha has been spotted bussing tables, running the cash register, and working the takeout window at Nancy's (opens in new tab) a seafood restaurant in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard (opens in new tab).

"She's been working downstairs at takeout," one server told the Boston Herald (opens in new tab). "We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was."

Those extraneous helpers? Her Secret Service, of course.

"She's been around for a few days," said another employee (opens in new tab) working the takeout window. "It's pretty random."

Aside from her entourage of security, Sasha has been keeping a low-profile, by using her full name—Natasha—and sporting the standard Nancy's uniform, a navy blue t-shirt and baseball cap.

Recently, she's been working the early shift, prepping the restaurant and heading out just 30 minutes after it opens for business, but sadly, the fun won't last forever. Rumor has it she's only working for a few more days, until her parents arrive on the island (opens in new tab) for their vacation on Saturday.
