Not About Food

Did you ever work at a fast food restaurant? [moved from Food Media and News]

I did. Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips. It was my first job. I was 16 and probably stayed right through high school graduation in 1979. I reeked to high heaven of fish and grease after a shift. I was not allowed to meet up with my friends after work until I went home and had a shower. I did love the food though. Hey, I was 16. Plus, we were able to come up with crazy combinations of food because we worked there. Most of the other workers were older than me (in college) and would take me out drinking with them afterward. Yes, I was 16, but the drinking age was 18 then and I was older looking for my age. It was not an easy job but we had a blast working there.

How about you?
