I stole this idea from another forum I'm on. Thought it was pretty fun. Lots of differences based on generation.
My first paycheck job was detasseling corn. I remember doing it three different summers although although I quit the second day my third year. They wanted me to be a crew foreman and I decided I was going to head a different direction in life Don't know why looking back. I would've been able to drive the tractor all day as a foreman. Guess I was a glutton for punishment
I went to work for a landscaper after that, then lawn sprinklers, lawn mowing, and so on amongst other various jobs in high school. I remember feeling I was paid pretty decent for a high school kid. Funs times looking back on it, but sure put in some long days.
