Time Marches On
The grocery store in which I first worked is now a coffee shop. (Yes, it was that small.) The laundromat and variety store in which I worked are now furniture stores. The catalog retailer in which I worked is now a self-store warehouse.
None of the bookstores in which I have worked still exist.
None of the movie theaters in which I have worked still exist. Neither do the companies that owned them. In only one case is the building still standing - vacant.
None of the data centers in which I have worked still exist.
Only one company for which I have ever worked has the same name, and is in the same line of work, as when I worked there. But the location in which I worked is gone.
My resume is a list of untraceable people, obsolete trademarks and abandoned real estate.
