So here we go again on to the riveting part III of my job experience. Yes, people are on the edge of their ergonomic chairs just waiting for the next exciting part. I know I’ve had a hard time waiting to see what I was going to write next.
After mastering manual transmission without first gear (my dad was always in the process of fixing up old cars this, being a 1979 Saab Sonnett without 1st gear and barely anything else), I started my adventure in the pizza business. The first week was rather challenging as I had to memorize numbers for all of the toppings. To this day I can still remember the numbers for a mushroom pizza with anchovies, and yet I can’t remember my zip code.
Lessons learned from pizza creating at Round Table Pizza:
- Drunk bowlers can be very crude
- Beer smells horrible dumped on a counter
- Working in a team can be much more fun than working alone
- There are some terribly lonely people out there
Perks of the job:
- Pizza–I still love it
- Meeting lots of interesting and not-so interesting people
- A free shirt that I still own when Round Table introduced the Hawaiian pizza
Would I do this job again?
Well, probably not now. It was great on Friday nights in high school working along side other kids my age. I don’t think I would have the same exact experience now–I only know how to make pizzas with 80’s music playing in the background.
