‹(•¿•)› Nº95 Blast from the Past 💥 🕰️
By Twotone Amsterdam • Issue #95 • View online
This week had some serious nostalgia. I saw WHY? for the first time in 12 years last night & I got back to my roots of working in restaurants this morning. I had the chance to help prepare salads inspired by me with Dom & the team at Cropbox. Read the Edible Stories interview I did with them in preparation for the salad box here. (and some behind the scenes footage from @twotoneams insta stories here)

This was a blast from the past for me as I really enjoyed all my years working in the restaurant industry. Around this time last year, I wrote a post for Fypster which included lessons I learned at those jobs:
  • First job 1999 – employed at 15 years old washing dishes, bussing tables & catering at a BBQ joint for 2 years.
  • Summer 2002 – before I spent my senior year of high school in Germany on a scholarship, I worked at Chic-Fil-A for a few months
  • Summer 2003 to Summer 2004 – I worked landscaping & mostly as a bagger at a grocery store 
  • 2004 to 2006 – got into GA State worked as a waiter in fine dining, several brunch places & as a barista
Key lessons:
  • Show up on time, do what you’ve got to do, stay until it’s done right. This sets you apart from the start.
  • Learn from your managers. Helping them with tasks beyond your job descriptions. Listen to their stories.
  • Quit for new opportunities. It’s easy to stay in a job. Don’t let opportunity pass you by for the sake of job security. (protip: leave on good terms & take a good reference with you)
What were some of your first job lessons? 
Also in the restaurant industry? ; )
As always, thank you for reading!
with appreciation,
Jon
