One Question Interviews: 20 Buck Spin

David Adelson (20 Buck Spin)

SPB: What is the worst job you’ve ever had? 

Adelson: Worst job I ever had was one of my first. When I was 16 I was suspended from school for smoking weed on campus. Since I could not go to school for 3 days my Dad said I'd have to make use of the time by finding a job. I got two jobs at once, one at Round Table Pizza (probably the 2nd worst job I ever had) and one at a pet grooming place where I was hired to clean up after the people who did the pet grooming. That entailed sweeping up pet hair mostly. But I immediately knew I'd made a mistake as smelling animals in the place all day and cleaning up after people and pets was not what I was ready to do. I quit after 2 days. Actually I don't even think I quit. Being 16 and as such a completely irresponsible and unaccountable asshole (like almost every boy of that age), I believe I just stopped going in without letting them know. Given minimum wage in California was $4.25/hr at this point (1993), I don't think I left more than about $25 behind.
