    Is it bad that I enjoyed simple work, like selling shit in a store or driving rental cars back, more fun than a "real career job"?

    Part time jobs or just full time?

    Only two full time over the last 20+ years.

    My most important job was being a Mom. :D
    I had quite a few part time jobs while my kids were little, to help make ends meet.


    I'm 45 years old.
