My first job was as a newspaper boy. I took over the route from a friend and he only had about 30 ppl. When I was done and turned over the route, I had over 160 ppl. Not to bad for a 13yr old.

My first was when I was a sophomore in HS, 16 years old, got a job as a cartboy at walmart, and that was before they got those little machines to push them. That job SUCKED!! Especially during the winter when there was a foot of snow on the ground. But hey it payed the bills (which at the time was only my $1500 car loan, auto insurance, gas, and repairs [damn GM cars :cursin: ] Ahh the good ol' days!). After 2 years of that hell, I finally got moved into the electronics dept, and worked there for 3 more years. Then I finally got smart and quit that hell hole :thumbs:

First real job....12 yrs old. Thinning apple trees in the local orchards.
Pulling the real small limbs off the trees, and separating clumps of apples, taking a clump of five apples and pulling off the smallest two, so the other three could grow larger.

Then someone discovered the small limbs were flexible like a fishin pole and when you attached the small apples to the end, you snapped it like a whip and you could throw apples 100 mph. Work became a lot of fun after that.... :lol:

I am a country boy, so my first paying job was on a farm picking up hay, cutting & hanging tobacco, shoveling s?!t, feeding the cattle, mowing lawns.
Not bad really, I made $250 a week just for working at the Queens Farm.
I also flipped burgers at there restaurant in the slow season. (3.25 an hour)
They took care of me because I was the poor kid in the neighborhood that actually would work.

Pretty good money for a 15 year old in the 80's!
