    Thinking back
    I worked in a greetings card shop


    The owner was how can i put it a little bit amorous. an elderly gent :eek:

    I was only 16 and very very naive

    It got to the point of getting uncomfortable to work there

    The final straw came when i had to sit on his knee before i got my wage packet

    >>>>> i left


    Looking back i should have reported him :D

    My first job..........:D

    Looking back it was the best job that I had. I worked in Accounts Payables and Recievables in a family owned car dealership. It was the one that owned the Monster Truck Bigfoot!



    It was a great job in part because I had just turned 16 and I had a junkie car. The woman who owned the dealership was the office manager who liked me a real lot. She sent me out with a salesman and let me pick out a car on the lot to finance with no money down and no credit check!

    Me riding to school in my little Ford Escort with the sunroof pulled open. Those were the days! :D

    Well, assuming babysitting and delivering newspapers doesn't really count, my first real job was at a gas station. I had decided that I wasn't ready to go away to college and the station was at the end of my street. I was not a tomboy, nor was I mechanically inclined, but I stayed for 3 years and my boss there was the best one I ever had. I started just pumping gas and eventually learned how to tow and repair cars. I also did their bookkeeping. The whole experience helped me be more confident (y)

    Summer job when I was 17. I worked at Simpson's Sears as a busboy in the restaurant for $1.80/hr. and all I could eat. I put on 20 lbs. in 2 months and got lots of eye candy. Some of the waitresses were hot! ;)

    I was lucky. Dad was a Master Electrician, so he taught me and my brother the trade.

    Back in the day when you could carry your kid to a jobsite and teach them a trade.

    Working for dad.... sometimes the best thing; sometimes the worst thing. But he always paid us a fair wage for fair work. I guess you can't beat that.

    Cashier/Clerk at a drive-thru party store called 'Cow to Car'! Had the usual fare: milk, bread, cigarettes, candy, icecream, canned goods, etc.. No beer or wine though!

    I worked early evenings part-time until 10 p.m. All by myself! The store was off the main drag and sort of all by itself! I was nervous at times! Shady looking characters even then! I'd never do that again in this day and age! I was 17 at the time!
