Today was day two at The Golden Gate Meat Company. I've had to find work because I'm not making it on my 80% income cut and oh yeah, mom cut me off.

I started my first day on Friday the 10th at 6:30 am. Quite an early start but it has to be this way if I am to get much time before I have to attend classes at 12:30.

The GGMC retail shop is at the historic Ferry Building at the end of Market Street. The Ferry Building is filled with many restaurants and food merchants including the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants, Cowgirl Creamery's Artisan Cheese Shop, Acme Bread Company, Sur La Table, Ciao Bella Gelato and Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker.

I found out about the position via my butchery class. I called, went in the same day and was more or less hired after a 6 minute interview. The job is challenging in that I am totally out of my element. Since high school, I have always worked behind a desk...except the time I worked in the pet store. At GGMC, I am behind a both a meat counter and a deli counter. It's wicked busy and fast paced. Apparently I must be doing something right as after my second day, I was asked to work an additional day. So every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I rise at 5am walk in the dark to Market Street where I catch the F Line which is a collection of antique street cars. Quite a change from my leisurely wake up time of "anytime before 11:30am".

The link to GGMC's site does not show a photo of what our meat and deli counter looks like so I am sure to snap a photo on one of my day's off.
