One of my older posts was about the "coffee bar" we had in our dorm room. I made some reference to Starbucks, and in retrospect, it's a little blasphemous. Or something like that.
On Friday I had an interview, and on Friday I was hired. Tonight was my first night of training. I'm not working at a Starbucks though. (Hence the "blasphemous" comment.) I'm working at a Biggby. So it's not:
Like I portrayed in my post back in the day. Instead, it's more like:
Wow...My drawing skills have already improved since that first drawing. I look a lot less like a clown in the new drawing. And you know I hate clowns. Anyway, I digress.
If you've never heard of Biggby Coffee before, chances are you don't live in the midwestern United States. Fun fact to be proud of as a Michigander, Biggby was actually founded right here in our state. About 20 minutes from my town actually. And the store I am now employed at is store #11. It's old. We were informed in our training tonight about how to shut off the main water supply in case of an emergency like exploding pipes. No joke. Oh, and the electricity. In case of electrical fire. Fun stuff.
Back to the point, Biggby isn't a huge chain, but there are stores all over Michigan, as well as several in Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. There are a random few in South Carolina, Alabama, and Texas, but otherwise, it's a midwest thing.
So that's my exciting life news for now. Tonight I learned how to do things like pull espresso shots, make creme freezes, and shut off power and water in case of an emergency. Or as a fun practical joke.
Just kidding. I'd probably get fired for that, and I haven't even worked a real shift yet.
