The other day I was checking out at the grocery store and the checkouts were understaffed so I started bagging my own groceries. About halfway through one of the checkout managers (or whatever the fuck they are) tried to step in and assist but I waved him off. I was doing a good job of it, keeping pace with the cashiers scanning. Put all the cans on the bottom too. The cashier told me it looked like I had done it before. I had. Thousands of time... a lifetime ago. Focus: What skills did you acquire that have stuck with you over the years? Can you still step to a grill and summon your line cook quickness to make a breakfast for 12 in no time flat? Toss some dough without tearing it for a perfect pizza because of your summers working in a pizza shop?
