    I was 15 and spent the summer chopping weeds out of my dad's friend's cotton field. It was what made me want to go to college

    I delivered newspapers when I was 15 on my bike. Back in the 80s
    It sucked gigantic balls.

    I had a paper route in grade 4 if that counts. first "real" job was Burger King in grade 9 at the highway rest area. my parents had to drive so far to get me there because the highway exits were so far apart. sometimes i'd walk there through farmer's fields. do I sound like an old, angry man?

    one time Bret Hart and Owen Hart and some other wrestlers came in while I was working and they were coming back from a wrestling show in Toronto. I was cleaning up the lobby and they told me I was doing a great job and seemed like good dudes. that's the only celebrity encounter I've had in my life.

    15, we used to wash a fleet of transport trucks every Saturday for 12 hours. It was a lot of fun working with a few of my cousins and goofing off after the boss went home and climbing to the top of the grain elevators there. It was great having money all through the end of high school.

    15. Waitress at a retirement home. Horrible. Then a dry cleaner, then a library until I graduated high school. (where I was constantly reprimanded for sneaking peeks at books on sexuality. Ponderous.)

    At 5. School. Like D.R.I. said "School's a job, but you, don't get paid". Then once I was done with that job at 18, I got one that paid.
