One of my many part time jobs was with GETs. I was a stock boy in the GET LIQUOR DEPT..just to the right of the main entrance. After school and weekends. Either 1956 or 57 we had the big earthquake. Schools shut down and all students sent home. No sooner in the door than I had an emergency call from my liquor department manager.."we need you here now!" When I arrived I was greeted by my boss with mop and bucket and instructed to clean up the remnants of HUNDREDS of broken whiskey and wine bottles.. contents strewn everywhere. I was sent home after a few hours toil..stoned on the fumes.
