It just hit me that my first 3 jobs are now obsolete.
1. Arcade employee - I would empty the quarters when the machines got too full and smoke with my boss in the alley talking about life choices. Still today, my most favorite job ever had the pleasure of doing.
2. Video store clerk - it was a job that was gifted down to me from my older brother. It was this hole in the wall video store and my brother was the only employee, so when he graduated high school I got to take his place. I just watched movies all day long, fast forwarded the popular movies when people wanted to check them out to be a dick, and collected every single movie poster we took down. I have so many movie posters in storage. It’s awful.
3. CD store clerk - there was a time when people actually bought CDs, I swear. It happened. Even cassette tapes.
I went to target and saw all their back to school college dorm shit. From ready made string lights with cutesie designs to bed post feet that have usb & power outlets on them just in case they want to study on the floor with friends. And I’m over here walking through the aisles feeling like i got sent off to uni with a rock and a pair of shoes when i had to go.
