So, I (somewhat) reluctantly claimed a job delivering pizza on the New Jersey shore to make my newly acquired ends meet.
While I had some experience in the service industry previously, nothing could have fully prepared me for the gauntlet that was being a delivery boy, slinging pizzas in suburbia.
And after a few short months on the job -- right about when my student loan payments began kicking in, naturally -- I realized something that would haunt me for the remainder of my six month stint as a delivery boy: I actually think I might have learned more delivering pizza, than I did toiling through four years of classes, papers, and lectures. Yes, seriously.
You may think being a delivery boy consists of nothing more than getting stoned and driving around (which I mean, yes it does), but the skill, effort, and knowledge required to deliver any food -- especially pizza -- is vastly underrated by society as a whole. It's an education unto itself. And an experience stuffed with more life lessons than you'd probably find on your average campus.
Still skeptical? Let's look at the facts, jack.
