This IS a fun thread! Y'all have had some great jobs!
In the unique dept, I ran the summer processing factory for the only tea farm in America. We took the green tea leaves from the field, withered them overnight, macerated using very antiquated but functional machines, then oxidized and dried them, a 24 hour process all together.
Hot, dirty, and our hands were always tea-colored. But it was the best summer job because we always managed to have a lot of fun even in a 90% humidity warehouse with a 220 degree gas dryer running!
