The one job that most of my friends want to do – is something that I have done 10 years ago (I suddenly feel old!). I am (always) proud of it. I was once a barista. The very first job title I held after graduation.
Those were the stories ten years ago. I made good friends, prepared coffee, did inventory, reconciled variances, opened a store on my own (literally working as a manager and barista for 2 hours before my barista came in), opened a new store, trained barista, trained managers (hello #JohnmyfriendJohn!), issued pink card, issued pink slip (yes, notice of dismissal because of termination for a cause), conducted my own tea cupping seminar, and made more coffee.
The Reunion Part 2 was actually for our friend’s despedida. We didn’t get to buy gift for him but we thought he would like something fun to bring like a drum set or guitar to keep him entertained while looking for a new job in Canada. I suddenly feel the need to buy now and send it to him. 🙂
