my first job out of college was a retail grunt at a spirit halloween. there was something like 16% unemployment at the time, thought i'd still get a real job within a few months. made the mistake at one point of telling my mom i sold a drunk couple $50 worth of shitty accessories.


she really fixated on this and would constantly send me shitty sales jobs. clerk at a verizon store! mall kiosk jockey! some that were 100% commission based. i am not a sales person. millennials hate sales people. i really resented her sending all of those to me.

i guess she desperately wanted to think i was good at something. i came out of uni with not the best portfolio or applicable skills. i just didn't know how to apply them properly.
