I'm not talking about the Site itself, I mean working as baristas. It matters not what coffeehouse you work for, it's all just coffee in the end.
But how did we wind up as wage slaves slingin' cups of joe at asshats in suits and ties?
I moved back to Calgary to keep my Mom company after my Dad died, and due to the recession, I had no choice but to pour coffee or go crazy. Before that though, I worked for a label company as a machine operator.
The hours were long, the pay was decent and there were certain intangibles that I can't go into here (April 20th...best holiday ever).
Now here I am.
So how did we all end up here?
