  • I worked in a pizza place. I loved it and worked through high school and passed in the same job. I still have some of the best friends I met from working there.

  • My first job was as a babysitter (typical, I know), but I loved it - for about 2 yrs; the husband was a big time fire captain and his wife was a SAHM - whenever they went out, they asked me to come over early to feed the boys (they had 3) and keep them occupied while they got ready. The wife was always glamorously dressed and the fire captain was a hunk. I felt like I was at the Oscars when I watched them come downstairs. It was a great job; the boys were great, the pay was AWESOME for a 12 year old and it was across the alley from where i lived - so I could always call my Mom if sometthing unusual cropped up. Plus, it taught me some responsibility, and provided good money; I have some really fond memories of that time.
