My skills in the kitchen are severely limited, but with the job market like it is, the only place that I could find work was in the kitchen of a fast food restaurant. While this certainly wasn’t my dream job, at the time I was simply satisfied to have a job in any capacity. From my first day on the job, it was evident this wasn’t a career path I should pursue.
I started by burning a batch of fries and nearly setting the entire facility on fire. That was followed by spilling a five-gallon bucket of cola while trying to refill the machine. Lucky for me there was a stainless steel floor drain, so the sugary mixture didn’t flood the whole place, although it did take me hours to remove the sticky residue.
