Over the years I have worked a lot of mostly pitiful jobs, and as much as I did not like most of them they have taught me a lot. If everyone worked these jobs I think we'd all be a little better off.
Food Service - Busch Gardens - 7/96-8/96 - Williamsburg, VA US
When I first learned that the majority of people in this country are stupid.
Cashier - Walmart - 6/99 - 8/99 - Newport News, VA
I rang up happy and friendly customers all day...
Librarian - Harvard Psychology Library - 9/99-12/99 - Cambridge, MA
I tried to do homework and ultimately fell asleep alot while waiting for patrons to come into the library. I was a sleep deprived freshman and it was a small, rarely used library. Harvard has 100+ libraries so I did not feel the need to stay alert.
Security Guard - Water Country USA - 6/00-8/00 & 6/01-8/01 & 6/03-8/03 - Williamsburg, VA
Walked around alot talking to employees and finding lost children.
Referee - Harvard Intramural Department - 10/00-4/01 & 9/01-4/02 & 9/02-4/03 - Cambridge, MA
Made a bunch of incorrect calls and got yelled at by players.
Waiter - Captain George's Seafood Restaurant - 6/01-8/01 - Williamsburg, VA
I sucked at being a waiter. I couldn't care less about pleasing people and making them happy.

They say to do what you love. Well, I love chess, I always want what I do to make a difference in the world, I like to teach, and I definitely enjoying crushing my opponents (even if they are 1st graders).
