What Was Your First Job?

I have been working since I was a teenager. I was briefly a paperboy and probably the worst paperboy ever! If I remember correctly, my paper route was around 60 to 70 homes, more often than not my Dad would drive me around to drop off the newspapers. The worst part was trying to collect the weekly fees. Tough job!
