When I was in high school I worked at the Barnes & Nobel Cafe. It was one of the most meaningful / fun / fulfilling jobs I had growing up. I almost only remember how awesome it was.
The people working there were a real cross roads of people. Hippie Wo-wo's types to straight lanced tuck in shirt types. I was young and in high school so everyone there was older than me. But everyone treated me with respect. Everyone was cool, even the managers were cool. The main GM was the only one that was a bit of a tight wad but then again how else would you keep everything running great.
Working retail kinda sucks so it made it even that more special. The customer were also great. It was fun while it lasted.
