I know what you are going through. I too live in an area with a limited variety of places to work for. Fast food is the only option for those under 18. Unfortunately my area is severely economically depressed, so many teenagers must work to help out with family expenses, as in my case. I had no other choice but to work at McDonald's, and I did pay the price for it. Everytime I came home from work I would be severely sick to my stomach (if I worked breakfast shift I couldn't eat until around 7pm) from the smell of the grease. I would come home reeking of the fast food smell, making me feel even sicker. I think the worst part about the work was having to put up with the rudest and most uncouth of people, and yet having to remain polite at all times. It is kind of hard to be polite when you have about 3 managers screaming at you to hustle because of an understaffed shift and the customer wants a personal slave out of you.
