What was your first job?

I started babysitting when I  was 9 or 10 and picked strawberries when I was 12, but my first job that I received a W-2 form from was planting strawberries when I was 13.  I was hired out of the field when I was picking berries because they thought I was 15.  Ha ha.

Anyway, what was your first job?

BONUS QUESTION:  How many jobs have you had during your life?  I have had fourteen jobs (that I can remember) during my lifetime.

Flower shop clerk and delivery. I didn't last long the owner was super creepy. I think he was up to something else other than flower and gift deliveries. I was 16 and 17 when I worked there

I helped out at my neighbor's farm, cleaning up after and caring for animals, doing laundry, working in their gardens, some housework, some cooking/canning, just general work.

I was 14 and I worked in the mall Food Court. I babysat sporadically before that, but the mall was my first official job.

Not counting babysitting, my first real job was a car hop at a local A & W rootbeer stand.  I've had 10 jobs total, 11 if I count the private housekeeping I did for a few months.
