  • Out of Something, Nothing: My Summer as a Professional Mover, part 4

    movers

    All of the houses full of garbage, the horror of the surprise addition of an industrial-sized refrigerator to the move, almost dislocating your shoulder carrying a wardrobe up narrow stairs – the emotional impact of everything that happens on the job is intensified by the presence of your coworkers.

    Everything about the job was foreign to me, from the average coworker’s consistently mean-spirited behavior to the benign mechanics of how a moving service operates.
