> WORK POST #2: All the Jobs I’ve Seen in Shanghai (jobs 11-22)
Hope you had a great 4th of July week/weekend/etc., folks back home!
This is the second post in a series of on the subject WORK. The other week I posted some definitions to get me thinking more about the topic as I go through my days. Please share your thoughts there or below. I’d love to hear what comes to your mind.
Here I continue my attempt to list all the jobs I’ve seen in Shanghai. I started yesterday by thinking about leaving my door, my building, and walking through the neighborhood to see where that takes us.
Here’s the next segment of the list.
11. The stationary lady in her 6 ft. by 6 ft. store, packed to the brim.
12. Various restauranteurs–Muslim food, noodles, crayfish, steamed buns, etc., in the small restaurants along fruit street.
13. The lady who sells plants and flowers in her tiny stall.
14. The women in the small tea shop.
15. The supermarket employees in the Hua Lian grocery store on fruit street.
16. People who wander the streets, or sleep next to them in their wheelbarrow, waiting to sweep up any trash that is dropped or blows by
17. The couple who runs the dry cleaning business
18. The younger guy and his father (?) who run the small DVD shop
19, The girl who works in Family Mart and has to hear that door tone song over and over and over again
