    I was a barista. It was nice, especially with the unlimited coffee I would drink when the boss was out. I loved that job.

      Ohhhh, now that would be a cool job! I would be hopped up on latte all the time. LOL

      Barista was my second job. They used me as a Guinea pig to try out new latte concoctions. I was buzzed without any down time.

        ROFLMAO!!! That could some days be a really cool job and others not so much!! LOL

    Gary, this question gives me nightmares. I worked at an A&W fast food restaurant. I wrote about one aspect of the job last week. Check it out if you feel the urge.

        LOL what else would I do as an unemployed college graduate? You’re too funny Gary.

    My first job was at the after-school day care center at my church, when I was a freshman in high school. All was going pretty well, until the other girl my age had to quit and they hired another teenager: the cutest, most popular guy in school on whom I had the biggest crush in the world. He was a nice guy, but being head over heels in crush with him, I somehow managed to consistently say and do stupid things, much to my embarrassment, as well as the amusement of him and a group of second graders.

      Oh no!! LOL Did you end up with a date??

      • April 20, 2009 12:58 PM

        Like I said, he was the most popular guy in school. I was decidedly not cool enough to hang out with his crowd, so I did not get a date with him. Too bad…our kids would have been gorgeous!

        • April 20, 2009 1:36 PM

          Yeah, that is too bad! Gogeous kids is always a good thing. LOL

      I honestly have never heard of someone working in one place their entire life. That is a remarkable feat.

      • April 20, 2009 8:29 PM

        I have to agree with you Tim. That is pretty remarkable!! 😀

        I worked in seven different branches spread over my state . It is very common to meet people working in one institution for years . Rather, it is the norm really.

    I was a babysitter first but the first one I had to fill out a W-2 for was a carhop. It was such a fun job. We didn’t wear roller skates but it was fun taking people food to their car. The boy watching was awesome. I can still remember everything about that restaurant.

    • April 20, 2009 11:42 AM

      That’s an AWESOME first job!! That would be fun! 😉

    My first job was in a HELL HOLE of a kitchen washing dishes. It was HOT, WET, SMELLY and DEGRADING! I started in the summertime and you want to talk about HOT. With all the burners going, ovens going and then working with VERY VERY HOT water it just SUCKED!! I swear that water was so hot, that there was a pipe running from under the sink straight to the depths of HELL!

    However, I was paid a rewarding $3.15 an hour. 😉

    I always say that my first job was as a cashier at our local SuperValu, but I guess it really was as a corn detassler. It was HORRIBLE!!!!! That is one job my kids will NEVER do and that must be why I’ve blocked it out. Besides, having Toby come to the store to buy ice for his mom (just to see me) was a much better memory!

    I had friends that detassled corn in the summer. I never did to that but I know my buddies didn’t like it either. In fact, they hated it!

    Toby coming to the store to see you….errr…buy ice cream for his mom IS a much better memory. 😀
