This can be quite trying during a long shift, because I am standing right over a deep fryer, and the air quality is abysmal
I don’t love to complain, because I know a lot of people who got ruined by COVID. I never got the virus myself, but it still cost myself and others my job. Without a job I lost my house, and virtually everything I had. I was reduced to living in my automobile while I searched for a job. Finally I got fired for minimum wage at a local food truck. I would slave away in the tiny food truck kitchen for minutes on end, and walk away with absolutely little currency. It sucked, but it was better than nothing. Besides, when you live in an automobile you don’t have to spend money on rent. My automobile is a station wagon so it’s absolutely roomy, and both the heating system and the cooling system still work great, so things could be worse. The vehicle I call condo has air conditioning but the vehicle I call the work does not. This can be quite trying during a long shift, because I am standing right over a deep fryer, and the air quality is abysmal. Not only is there no cooling, but the food truck is immersed in a cloud of grease and smoke throughout the day. Even with the side panel open to allow for natural ventilation, the food truck remains hot, humid, and gross all day, every day, however during my breaks I go to the station wagon, turn on the cooling system, and stand in front of the air vents until it’s time to get back to work. One day I hope to live in a condo again, but for now an automobile is better than nothing.
