My first few jobs were at restaurants and cafes. Even though I work an at an office now I still think back to nights of bus bins piled up 2 feet high and mornings with lines of irritated people waiting for their morning coffee, with me and my team working as fast as we could.

In an office things still get stressful but you have fewer people to answer to and threat of someone completely flipping out at you is definitely lower. Nothing quite like the anger of someone who has to wait an extra 3 minutes for their morning latte...

Hi Bram Oosten , I know the feeling for sure! I worked as a barista and bartender for many years, it's crazy how some people get - especially when it comes to their morning coffee!! When I would find myself in a particularly stressful situation with a difficult customer, I would try my best to take a deep breath and remember that I'm literally getting paid to keep professional and calm haha
