My first job was at Baskin Robbins. I loved it. Got to sample the ice cream all day too. Only bad thing was controlling yourself...lol. Which wasnt hard at all. I found out my favorite non-traditional flavor is Peanut Butter and Jelly Icecream.

Welcome to the Mid-West.

If you like sweet corn, odds are, it's a hybrid. How do you get a hybrid ear of corn. Cross-Pollination of course. How do you cross pollinate? Well, pollen from strain "A" has to land on the plant of strain "B". How do you ensure this process occurs? You Detassle strain "B".

I was 14. I got on a bus at 4:30 a.m. rode 2 hours to a few other towns to pick up more kids, and then it was off to the fields. We rode in special vehicles that had "buckets" on it, that suspended two people between two rows of corn. You'd then drive through the rows, and pull the tassles out of the center of the corn. 8 hrs. in the field, plus 4 hours of daily drive time equals 12 total hours for 8 hours of pay at a rate of $4.25/hr. It sucked. It sucked hard.

Apparently someone else didn't like it either...

I'm still working at my first job, I've been there for three years now (God knows why), but now I only work there during breaks from college.

My first job was my sweetest to date. The summer after I graduated I became a PC technician for the school district. The supervisor thought that as long as we were out of the office that we were working so we'd go to one of the schools and setup Starcraft on the LAN. We'd then sit and play Starcraft for 3-4 hours straight. Then we'd go to lunch and maybe fix a couple PC's. Unfortunately that job was only for the summer.. :(

My first job. paid or volunteer?

Paid: I was an office assistant in a hospital billing dept.

Volunteer: (first job ever actually) worked in a hospital where they did experiments on rats. I learned to castrate rats and cut their brains out of their skulls without leaving a dent in the brain matter. Not the most awful job but not something I was expecting to do concidering how much I love animals. I'm glad I didn't work there for long. They only needed me for a month...my mother got me the job. She thought I'd be watching rats go through mazes. She had no idea I'd be cutting their balls and brains out.

Get some better shoes..The sore feet won't compare to the mental stress of dealing with idiots all day. You'll know what I mean after a few weeks there and the idiosyncrasies of people start to get on your nerves.

my first job was a Shop Rite grocery store... started at 6 an hour... fuckers acted like it was some kind of glamorous job or something... maybe if i was 85 with two pensions and pissing myself every other hour...

Either way I quit after 4 months because the boss told me some lady came back with some sob story about how I was so mean to her ringing her order up... Yeah ok... me and the bagger were talking with one womans order then when she came up she said "Id ApRiCiAtE it if you didnt talk to the bagger while you rang my order up.".. um ok ma'am, was my exact words... me and the bagger exchanged a little "bitch" look and rang her up.. total silence and business. she gave me a little dirty look when two bottles of apple juice clanged together, like I did it on purpose.. the supposed sob story later on was I was rude, angry, and was throwing her groceries down the line.. she supposedly was in tears... yeah ok this woman doesnt look like she ever cried a day in her life... more of she was the type if she didn't get everything catered to her exact whim she would complain for 2 years to get a 35 cent refund over it..

I told the boss he was a moron, an asshole, she was a liar and if he is that much of a disgrace to the irish name(He was irish and so am I) that he would belive such a fucked story or make up shit(cuz he didnt like me either) then he can have the pointless job... now I've seen half the world, and he's seen modly milk in the back cooler... :D fucker...
