Free food...Second half of my career at BK, they got all cheapo of us and made it half price!
Today I miss the smell of grease in my hair 24-7. Maybe not!
Reason for my 3 jobs 1. contract - expired (company bought out by another, cut all contracts) 2. contract - lost (new company picked up contract said no raises for 3. next few years) 3. current job - (going insane)

It certainly helped me. While at school I was pretty lazy, but while doing a weekend/evening job in BK I thought to myself "If I screw up my exams and don't get to university then I'll be doing jobs like this for the rest of my career". It was a good motivational exercise, and I worked a lot harder because of it!

Eurgh, that was the worst bit. I hated coming home from a shift in the kitchen to find that even a scalding hot bath and some normal food couldn't get rid of the smell, feel and taste of grease. I still dislike going to burger places like that, just stepping through the door and inhaling that awful smell again makes me lose my appetite. [ December 18, 2006: Message edited by: Dave Lenton ]

now I know where I went astray... There were no Burger Kings when I was that age (indeed the first McD only opened when I was well on my way to graduation and that one appeared years before the first BK). Can I sue BK for not giving me a chance to gain life experience and motivation as a student for the reason of them not having a franchise where I lived?

I bet its a bit different now. There seems to be a McDonalds, Pizza Hut, BK, etc just about everywhere. It wouldn't surprise me if there's one in the Antarctic. I even saw a programme on the telly a while back showing an American school which had a Pizza Hut inside it instead of a kitchen!
What next? A McDonalds franchise at the back of the plane? BK in the local library?
