Voices Around Town

What was your worst summer break experience?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Samson So.

"In the late '60s, I was working for a metals testing company because I thought I wanted to be a metallurgist. All I ended up doing was making furnaces all summer. I didn't learn anything about metallurgy."

Dave Himmelblau, Mountain View

"My worst summer vacation was two years ago when I was having a birthday party and we went camping and I dove into a lake and I got a concussion."

Katie Janson, Mountain View

"In elementary school when I had a bunch of people over, I went on a slip-and-slide and sprained my ankle. After that I had to wait three hours in the emergency room while getting X-rayed."

Amy Linker, Los Altos

"My worst experience during summer was a marketing job I had, because I had to walk around knocking on doors and half the people didn't let me in their house. So, I quit the first day."

Brian Armenta, Santa Clara

"I had to go with my dad and his girlfriend and my sister to Las Vegas. Me and my sister weren't 21. If we were going to be all the way in Las Vegas playing video games and watching movies, we could have just done that at home."

Rose Tse, San Francisco
