What was your first job: I was a bookseller at Barnes & Noble in my junior and senior years of high school. I typically staffed the cash register or shelved books, but one day that asked me to work my shift in the café that was part of the store. I was never asked to work in the café again after that shift, and with good reason. In completely unrelated news, I don’t drink coffee.
