Like many, I had some pretty horrible/funny jobs when I was a teenager. My first was a cashier at Kopp’s Frozen Custard at 14. The custard was/is amazing, but the bosses were mean and used to charge me from my 4.75 hourly wage if I ever made mistakes ringing people up. Next came stocking the beauty section at a grocery store which wasn’t as bad but boring as can be. The one that stuck was working at the mall down the street at the Gap. I actually loved this job because I got 50% off got to dress all the mannequins in cute outfits.
Anyway- this was when I was 16, and used to eat sugary junk food without consequence, my favorite things to do on my 15 minute break was run to the food court and get one of those frosted cookie cups from Mrs. Field’s. Are you familiar? They also had mini cookies and thick frosted brownies I couldn’t get enough of, but their chocolate chip cookie cups with thick buttercream inside were my favorite.
