QUESTION SET THREE
Tell us about the most fucked up job you ever had.
My first job was at McDonald's right after I turned 16. I worked either up front, on the drive-thru, or sometimes when it was busy I would do nothing but fry and salt french fries for my entire shift. I was too young to understand a lot of the things that made that job so terrible in retrospect, but at the time, it was mostly being treated like a part of a giant food machine where things like being slow, or coming in to work 2 minutes late were treated as huge inconveniences by my managers.

Tell us about a time you were a boss.I supervise interns at a non-profit film and video cage. I like it-- I like them. Hopefully it's almost the opposite of McDonald's.

Tell us about your paycheck.
I have direct deposit for two of my jobs, and I never look at the pay stubs that they mail me.
