The owner of the pizza place I worked at for several years in high school & college died yesterday of a heart attack. It wasn't a huge shock... if "you can't trust a skinny chef", then I'd say he was one of the most-trusted around. Really nice guy with a big heart. He called all of the employees "family members" or "his kids", and treated us that way. He even kept up with everyone as we went on to other careers and shut down the restaurant once a year for a "staff family reunion." It still stands as my favorite job--great people to work with and fun regular customers.
It got me thinking about my friends here on Cyburbia... what was your absolute favorite job you've ever worked? Who was your favorite boss?
