6) Follow Your Dreams or Whatever


I got my first college job at a hookah bar, here’s how it happened. I was a freshman, testing the waters in an unexplored environment. My roommate at the time proposed we visit a hookah bar down the street, and I obliged. We smoked the night away and decided to leave after a couple hours but not before I hit up the bathroom. Going to the restroom I was elated to find a five-dollar bill on the ground in the hallway. You can imagine my surprise when I found a hundred-dollar bill resting underneath the five.

Being a human being my moral dilemma lasted only two seconds. I knew the moment I started asking around everyone would lay claim to the bills, so I took the money for myself. My friends and I blew it on a weekend.
