I met my girlfriend at work.
I know that workplace romances are frowned upon in general, and at this company they are expressly forbidden.
So Jenny and I always have to keep things very chill while we are in public. If the boss gets wind that we are together, he will definitely switch our schedules so we never work together. And thats the best case scenario, worst case he could fire one or both of us. I will admit the level of risk makes it all the more exciting, even though I would be depressed if I lost my job at the cannabis dispensary. I’ve never been huge into smoking marijuana, it was something I tried a few times and decided it wasn’t for me. That said, I absolutely love working at the cannabis dispensary and helping people get what they want. Cannabis isn’t for me personally, but a lot of people love it, and I enjoy my work. Marijuana smokers tend to be very chill people, friendly and eager to talk, so I see myself as no different from a bartender who doesn’t drink alcohol. It wouldn’t be the end of the world if I lost my job at the cannabis dispensary, but it would be a big bummer. But I have to take the risk, don’t I, because Jenny is worth more than any job, even one as sweet as being a budtender to a town full of marijuana aficionados. Let’s just hope everything stays just as it is, with a great girlfriend at home and a great job at the marijuana dispensary.
