Ricky, Friendly Neighborhood Trader Joe's Guy
Lesson #1: If you're going to interrupt a Trader Joe's employee with pesky interview requests, don't intrude on valuable smoke break time. Wait until they're busy working.
Lesson #2: Not everybody is as obsessed with municipal boundaries as you are. Most people are willing to live a more fluid, cosmopolitan existence. See below.
Occupation: Trader Joe's cashier
Do you live in Granada Hills, or just work here?
Just work here. Technically, I guess I live in Northridge.
Can you tell me something you like about Granada Hills?
I'm not really sure where Northridge ends and Granada Hills begins -- I'm not really sure where the borders are. So I don't know what to say.
Can you think of anything you like about Granada Hills?
I'm glad that I have a job here.
And what's your least favorite thing about it?
You know that parade they have? It blocks the traffic.
But that's only once a year.
