1st job in HS was working at a small town grocery store called Coy's, which was sold & then made to Delbert's. I was a cashier there.

Then I quit so I could work at our local veterinarian. I loooved working as a vet tech. assistant but my boss' wife pretty much hated me so I quit because she was a total bitch.

My next job was at an Italian restraunt Luigi's as a waitress. Quit that job when I became pregnant.

Worked at the BX at Altus AFB in Military Clothing Sales. Loved that job as well. My boss' were AWESOME. Then we moved to McChord AFB,WA & I worked at the BX there in Electronics but quit because I was on the verge of being fired. My son was sick a lot, my SO was deployed, and work wanted to give me crap when I had to stay at home with my son (who was less than a year at the time.)

And now, the job I have, is at a daycare center on Ft. Lewis. I looooove it!! :)

yes and no. it was right out of high school before i got married and it was just a fun job since i had no kids or bills or any responsibilities. but any job with customer service is hard and stressful. but retail jobs just have to be the worst. some customers are so mean and nasty. but overall it was a good fun job. i just don't think i would ever work retail again. its just too much to deal with.

I just find it interesting all the different jobs people have had that seem so unrelated...
