“The best bad job you can have”

Jenny B sent me a link to this article last week, which made me think about how much I really do miss working at Aroma. It was a crappy job that wore me out, but I really enjoyed working with fun people (most of the time) and talking to random customers (most of the time) throughout the day. I miss doing a mindless job and doing it well, drinking all the coffee I could handle, getting a free meal, and grabbing drinks with coworkers after work.

I think the days of mindless jobs are behind me, at least for the time being, but that doesn’t mean I can’t look back on them fondly.

  1. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, too. I’ve never had a job where I met as many fun, interesting people and got familiar with the people in the neighborhood than I have at Fields. Sometimes I think that I could just barista full time if it paid a living wage… at least for a few years or so.
