    Oh gosh, my first job. Lets see I was working in the library for my university I was attending. It's kind of funny, it was where I met my first boyfriend, He would always come to me to check out his books, and after about the 10th time, he finally said hi to me. He was such a towering nerd, but, he was my towering nerd. I couldn't ask for such a better first job, and a first boyfriend, really.

    I was a paperboy for the Indianapolis Star.

    My first blowjob was a disaster. He ended up beating off at the sink. icon_wink.gif

    I worked at Subway. Wages was decent, people were cool, manager was a douchebag. One memory that sticks out quite vividly was that I was the best "Prepster" (person who was in charge of preparing all of the vegetables, meats, cheese etc to be put on display) and was awarded free subway sandwiches for a whole year!! Thanks to that award, Subway became my least favourite dining out option.

    You know, looking at it in a bigger picture it does kind of look like that, but, it was hard work. You have those heavy books, and sometimes you had to put them on the top shelf, and at that time I wasn't nearly as muscular as I am today. When my boyfriend was in the library and not busy, I would always ask him if he could put the books on the top shelf up for me, haha. No, but he was a really great guy.

    pshh, this was way before taylor was out and popular, so if anything she copied me, haha.

    Well, it was a long time ago. The volunteer work was environmental tasks I did in my earliest teens (clean the waterway, collect & recycle) and the chores were pretty extensive. Stuff in the house, yard, pool, swab the decks, wax the cars. I could have formed my own labor union.

    I did have a factory job senior year high school but then college summers and after college I went back to work for family construction biz.

    If you want the very first, I suppose that would be the filing I used to do for the family biz after grade school was done for the day so mom would put me to work.

    Life is work. Better?

    i mowed lawns for old ladies. 5 a week when i was a tiny child. I got paid more then than i do now... icon_sad.gif

    (ps. I think I got paid to talk to them after more than the lawn itself)

    I think my first away job was at a video and book store doing whatever.

    My first cool job, I worked for a guy who was a photographer, but on the side he was building a machine to print large scale (billboard sized) photos in one shot. So he was setting up a factory in his enormous garage. I pretty much installed everything. He liked me a lot.

    I started off painting the garage, then wired up a full 3-phase electrical system (including drilling into a city culvert with a 6" diamond drill) - all fully unqualified to do any of it at 17 of course...and it all worked out and ran, and more importantly passed inspection by the city! (I havent thought much of electricians since, since I was 17 and did one of the hardest installs with 0 experience...lol.)
    He was doing vacuum forming on a big press, and he had me make all the molds. Calcite plaster and then powdered aluminum resin with magnesium plate reinforcements. All in one summer. Life has been downhill since then pretty much.

    hahaha here for you! on the brightside, however, you have experience working with electrical systems (sounds complicated yet interesting to try)

    I've never had a "normal" job. The first time I worked I tried to model in my teens but everyone was like lol no so I ended up doing promo work for Lactaid Milk and Stagg Chili. The Lactaid one was fun, we had this giant inflatable red barn and I had a microphone and I had to ad-lib all these promo lines for Lactaid, so I was like "Old McDonald had a farm...but he could not digest regular milk, until now!"

    I'm currently at my first official job.

    However, I have done a few odds and ends that ended up making me some money (house cleaning, machine maintenance, web site design/set-up, paperwork, etc.)

    Delivered newspapers at 13 as well as babysitting and cutting lawns.

    First formal job being an employee was running a corner store and closing up at night while STILL doing the first three.

    lol, it was good distraction from my certainty that there were only 6 gay people in the world, and no more than one in each of six countries. Grim, eh? icon_lol.gif

    ...and Dad only gave me 25 cents a week allowance, so...

    hollister I was 18. I loved it all I did was flirt, dance around, make frd, goof off. work was easy i was high or drunk a lot. I use to go to lunch and fill up a cup with vodka and sip it thru out my shift. the managers were my age now or younger. id come in 4 late and get nothing more than a eye roll. I really couldnt have asked for a better first job. now I heard they became douche bags gotten super strict and hired uglos cuz theyll actually put up with abuse. I hate seeing go downhill, it was like home once.

    I started teaching horsemanship when I was 14 years old and continued until after law school. Loved it! It was just a little hard the first year to be taken seriously, but when I was 15 all exploded and I had more students than I could deal with. It was great. Good memories!
