Episode 27: All the Crazy Non-Camp and Recreation Jobs We’ve Had



Are you someone who’s worked a bunch of weird or dumb jobs in order to keep working at your camp or recreation job? Curt and Patti totally are! They share all of the jobs they’ve had in order to keep working in the industry – and what they’ve learned from some of them.

Curt is listening to Dua Lipa  and Patti’s listening to “Monkey Bar” (Makeba)

Find out what job turned Curt into Popeye and why Patti does a Walgreens tour every time she goes to the States. Curt gives a brief history of the evolution of companies in the US and worked at a place that sounds like Empire Records.

Patti was the worst server in the history of the land, Curt was the BEST bartender for a very short time and worked a sneaky job that made him feel horrible. Due to time we had to cut out a few jobs, like when Patti worked at a grocery store and Curt was a mobile DJ and process server. If we weren’t so long winded…

Things we’re grateful for

Curt’s grateful for all the different landscapes that this world offers and Patti’s grateful for her health.
