  •  Oh, for fucksake. It wasn't even that great, and (11+ / 0-)

    it was one of the diary topics... the poll.  So I saw the poll on the front page, thought I had an amusing sidenote, clicked to the story and then brainfarted until I was reading more of the comments just now.

    I worked in a traditional fast food joint as my first job:  Burger King.  Years later I did a stint at a local burger and barbeque stand, and sometimes served as a carhop there.  I did not wear roller skates (the lot was pretty small and kinda potholed) but I did sometimes commute to work in the winter via ice skating down the rive behind our house, which went within a couple blocks of the restaurant.  My roommate worked at the same place, and a couple of times during the summer when our shifts worked out for it, one would paddle a canoe downstream, tie up and the other would pick up the canoe and paddle home.  It was a pretty lazy river so paddling home after a shift wasn't a big deal.  It was a crappy job in some ways but things like that made it more fun.
