This is NOT a rant thread. So I've discovered since switching careers that there were things I didn't realize about my new job. Things I either hadn't thought about, or had taken for granted. What are somethings you find interesting, or facts the surprise people about a job you've held? Mine: On an average 5 hour shift in a grocery store deli (according to my pedometer) I walk about 6,000 steps or aprox. 2 miles Shaving meat not only takes a lot of time, but can be physically painful if you slice enough of it. I was not expecting that. A hose, a deck brush, and a squeegee is a surprisingly efficient way to mop a large area of flooring. Sunday is the busiest shopping day of the week. It takes on average 7 good interactions to make up for 1 bad one Sweep the floor enough times and it becomes a great core workout. Or at least feels like one An industrial dishwasher is the best thing ever.
