During university, I was working the night shift at Dunkin Donuts, to pay the bills. I worked there for about 4 years in total. During the weekends, I would leave the house after everyone was asleep and return before they were up. During the week, I would barely sleep between university, homework, and work.

At first, it was fine, but after a while, I started to feel deprived of a social life, I felt depressed and exhausted. I was burning the candle at both ends. So one evening, I decided to join a group of friends, drink and enjoy myself. I was young, it was a minimum wage job and I decided to throw responsibility to the wind and show up to work drunk.

To this day, I can’t believe I got away with it… kind of…

The Duncan Donut I worked at did their own donuts. During the low traffic hours, I helped the cook. Even if you didn’t eat any, the sugar would get through your pores and your blood sugar would go through the roof. This is especially not good when you drank too much. Can I tell you that before long, I turned green and wasn’t feeling too good? I swore I would never do that again in my life.
