BumpInTheNight: kdawg7736: They have to get their working careers off somewhere. It is good work experience having any job. My first one was landscaping at an ice cream parlor.

You're lucky, my first was cleaning pools at the video store.


You are both lucky. Mine was manscaping at a gay strip club.

Chuck E Cheese's and I had to wear the rat suit...twice.  Stank like teenage BO and I was head butted in the junk both times.


My first paid job was teaching assistant for a Calculus class. Stank like teenage BO and I was head butted in the junk both times.

Did they like you because you were plucky or because of your spunkiness?

Considering it's long been a goal of some Republicans, I doubt they'd want to give them credit for something 'good'.

My first job was to deliver news on dead trees to old people.  The Sunday log was particularly heavy.

My teenager just got her first job in a fast casual restaurant (Chipotle of ______ format) so I'm getting a kick out of this.

She's fully determined to spend all her checks on junk food, makeup, and clothes. Oh to be 16.

montreal_medic: Mine was pressure washing fishing boats when they came in for the night, after they were unloaded. That sucked

I went to a fight once and a hockey game broke out.

"The first 10 shifts you work, you receive a $100 gift card," Berardi explained, with options including Target, Giant Eagle, Amazon and GetGo. "For working five hours or more on July 16, 17 or 18, you can get a $25 gift card, and I'm scheduled for all three.

Wow, what an incentive! $10 a day for the first 2 weeks?  Gee that employer is really going all out.

First real job I was a dishwasher at a Lums.  I was 16 and had to lie about my age.  Started me at $2.19 an hour. My friends were so jealous.

My 19 yo son just started stocking shelves at Walmart and started at $17. It's night shift and he loves it.

Well I know I joked, but my real first job, when I was 16, was picking melons. Stoop labor for 8 to 10 hours a day, for 8 weeks, with no day off, under the blistering sun or in the mud. That was a tough job, but we were young, in good physical condition, and the long hours many the pay was great.

Great pay for backbreaking labour was both good for my bank account, and good for reinforcing how important it was to keep going through school. That was not the kind of job I would have wanted to be doing for years.

Every day you're on the job, you're two days nearer death

But soon you're knockin' on and you look older than you should. For every bob made on the job, you pay with flesh and blood.


Lazy sit at home stock owners kinda like it.....
