Famous first jobs

Fox News's John Stossel has a cool vid up asking some of the network's pundits about their first job(s). Many of them, not surprisingly, had [first] jobs that I had.

In more-or-less chronological order, here are some of my first jobs:

  • Paperboy (age 11-12)
  • Dishwasher (age 15)
  • Outdoor maintenance gopher at a local country club (age 16)
  • Busboy at same country club (age 16-18)
  • Waiter at same country club (age 18-23)
  • Grounds maintenance at a cemetary (age 21)
  • Bartender at same country club (age 21-22)
  • Waiter at Irish restaurant near Philly airport (age 23)
  • Pack-out guy for soft drink co. (age 24)
  • Sales rep. for soft drink co. (age 24)

What were some of your first jobs?
