Happy Wednesday! Today’s lunchtime poll wants to know all about what you’ve done to make money.
Of all the jobs you’ve had, which job was your favorite and which was your least favorite, and why?
My favorite job is freelancing, by far. Sure, there are hassles with taxes and hunting down money, but I like making my own hours and I really like working in my very comfy clothes. Usually with unbrushed hair. It took a long time to make what I made in my old career, but now that I’ve been at it for four years, I have a good reputation and clients seek me out, instead of the other way around.
My least favorite job was in fast food. I worked for a tiny, independent hot wing restaurant with delicious food and terrible management. I was in my early twenties, and still a full-time student, and my immediate supervisor was a sixteen year old asshole. She stole from the drawer, which she then made me count, so I had to pay back the shortages from my paycheck. She made me scrub the toilets 10 times per shift. She dropped food on the floor and served it to people. I didn’t last very long, I think I worked there until my first paycheck. Which, I might add, was for like eleven dollars because I had to buy a pair of $50 branded polo shirts and cover the asshole’s thievery.
