The difference between being a bouncer at a nightclub and laboring the front door of a cannabis dispensary is immense.
Both tasks are basically the same on paper, but in practice they are strikingly different.
Basically I have a stool by the front door, and I check the ID of everyone who wants to come inside. If someone gets out of line, or is disruptive, then my pal and I gently “escort” them off the premises. Like I said, on paper both tasks are the same! The main difference is the type of customers I have to deal with. At the nightclub I had to deal with a lot of drunks, and cut up a even-handed number of fights. At the cannabis dispensary there are never any fistfights, because in general potheads are much more peaceful than drunks. The greatest problem I have is the long line in front of the cannabis dispensary at night. At least once per shift I have a tired pothead get bored and lay down on the sidewalk, only to fall asleep. These are enjoyable complications to have, especially since I make more money at the cannabis dispensary. My preferred part of the task is the employee discount, which means I save money on all my cannabis products. Of course I never get high at work, but when I am at apartment I smoke cannabis always. Thanks to my employee discount I actually save a hundred dollars or more every month on my cannabis purchases. Since there are never any fights to cut up, this is pretty much a dream task!
