I have an issue with past jobs and my dreams.
My first job-ever-was pretty demanding. It was at a frozen custard shop and before you laugh at that being demanding....let me give you a few "highlights" from working there for years.
*They used to time how fast we could scoop custard. Cones, concretes, etc. They timed it.
*After they set down their stopwatch they would get out a scale and weigh it. Seriously.
*I would work until sometimes after 1 am. While in high school. And then during college. It. was. horrible.
*I once slipped in the walk in cooler. Someone had spilled custard mix and wiped it up. With water. Which then turned into a black ice. I ran to get some stuff during an extremely busy summer nite and totally wiped out! I was SO black and blue and they were so nice to me. In fear of being sued. Ha.
*A man once claimed he gave us a $50. Except there was no fifty in the register. He then threw all of his custard items (I distinctly remember a root beer float exploding as it hit the wall). Now that was fun.
Anyway, I used to have dreams about this place all the time. Now that I am having those "crazy" pregnancy dreams? I can't stop dreaming about this place! I dreamed about a woman who abducted a baby there on her bicycle and then tried to shoot me--which never happened, btw! I dream about just working and working....scooping one treat after another.
Does anyone else have dreams about old jobs? Anyone? Or am I the only one who was so traumatized by this job that it is forever engraved into my brain....
Because let me say--there are many things I would love to dream about....but it is always this place...
