>> The daughter of a friend worked as a barista at the Space Needle while she was in school. After a while, she became really conscious of her role as a drug pusher to caffeine addicts, as she characterized it.

I imagine that you are motivated to do this job for social reasons, but I wonder if you might not wind up seeing the job in the same way as this girl after being exposed to it for a while.

I'm not trying to discourage you from doing it, just curious about how it might work out after a while.

Maybe. But the beauty of financial independence is that if the job sucks, you don't have to stick with it. They don't have the golden handcuffs on you. It certainly makes it easier to take a job to see what it's like when you know you don't NEED the job.
