Eagles’ Shaun Bradley hated his 1st job at chain pancake spot

Each week during the 2022 regular season, we’re going through the Eagles’ media guide to find a nugget of interest.

The Eagles’ PR interns do a great job of filling in these little oddities in the media guide, and they serve as a good way to meet the players behind the helmet.

This week we sat down with linebacker and special teams ace Shaun Bradley.

Me: It says your first job was at IHOP. Is that right?

Bradley: Yes indeed.

Me: What was your job there?

Bradley: I was a bus boy. Cleaning dishes, mopping floors, serving water on the tables. That’s all.

Me: How old were you when you got it?

Bradley: It was my first job, so I was… 18. Just turned 18. end of high school.

Me: So senior year did you do it?

Bradley: Yes indeed.

Me: How did it work out in sports?

Bradley: When football was over, I went to college in a gray shirt. I came home in the first half of the year. I was at home because my scholarship didn’t start until 2016. So my father told me I had to find a job. He was like going somewhere, finding something to do. I didn’t really play sports, I took courses at community college and worked at IHOP. And then I finally stopped because obviously I was going to the temple. I ended up losing the job.

Me: Mmmm.

Bradley: Actually… I got fired.

Me: What have you done? What have you done?

Bradley: um I think, honestly, I think I just didn’t go. I think I had a week before I went to school. My dad told me to go and I just didn’t show up.

Me: So you wanted to quit…

Bradley: Yes, I wanted to quit anyway. But I just didn’t tell them. I just didn’t come back. (Laughter) I hated it so much bro.

Me: did you hate it

Bradley: I thought bro if this is my life I can’t do it. I can’t do it

Me: What was the worst part about it?

Bradley: Well, first of all, I already hated washing dishes because I hated getting my hands on food and all that. I hate that. I’m sick of it. And frankly, it was just boring, it was boring. I’m so used to playing soccer, exercising, running around, doing stuff that you’re just back there, sitting there, just waiting. And I’m hosing down dishes and sitting around again. I just watch the hours go by and I think, ‘I could do something else.’

Me: do you like pancakes

Bradley: Now don’t get me wrong: free food, free pancakes and the drinks, a match.

Me: So it hasn’t ruined your fondness for pancakes?

Bradley: no No, but it ruined my love for IHOP a bit. I used to go to IHOP a lot when I was little, but once I started working there I was like, ‘Nah. I can’t eat that anymore.’ But I still like pancakes.

Me: How was it with the people who worked there? Did they know you were going to college soon?

Bradley: Yes, but it was still funny. People in there, there were a couple of girls that I knew that I went to school with in high school, so they were there too, working. And my dad knew the manager so it was intertwined. So I knew the area.

Me: So you wouldn’t do it again?

Bradley: Absolutely not. I wouldn’t be a waiter. I would be host I could host but not with the food, cleaning the floors. I do not like it.

Me: Thanks man.
