A Career Down the Drain...

I've always had a second career lined up in case I ever did something stupid enough to get me fired from my job... which I don't think is very likely: you pretty much have to be brain dead and/or try to get fired, but I digress. I had some previous training in this other career and was very successful in the career for two years before moving into my current career path. Today I found out that my "backup career" is over with. Finished. Kapoot. Gone.

Yes, it's true. The very first place I ever received a paycheck from is gone. They demolished my old Taco Bell on Main street... never again will I be able to re-live the glory days of saying into the drive-thru mic, "Welcome to the border, can I take your order?" No more can I hope to return to Taco Bell and resume my place of honor as mexican fast food's answer to Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail. (I used to be able to flip the meat scoops and bean trowels behind my back like on the movie... I was quite a hit with customers and team members alike, if I do say so myself.)

Goodbye, old friend... I'll miss the $3.35 an hour you paid me...
