    I worked at 15 in a restaurant. I had to bread clams, scallops and chicken. I also had to make hamburgers and actually quarter the chickens. I have a scar from when I was cutting a chicken and the knife hit my pinky. You?

    I worked under the table at a farm . I was under age but it was pretty good money . I learned I never wanted to work on a farm the rest of my life . I'm glad I did it though .

    Fitting room attendant at TJ Maxx when I was 15. It was as awful as you'd imagine it would be. Equal parts mind-numbingly boring and horrible having to deal with the public. A couple months later I quit and got a job as a cashier / waitress at a pizza place with a bunch of much older, completely inappropriate dudes. That was a fun job, actually.

    Chambermaid at a shitty motel when I was 13. I wasn't even supposed to be working. I also had to walk there. Isn't that......sad?

    I feel bad for retail workers. They make no money and have to deal with customers.

    I worked at a local fast food place when I was 16 and the 125 yr old owner commented on my boobs all the time. He actually would come behind me and squeeze my ribcage right under them and go "ooooh."

    I worked a desk at a JC Penney....pretty much just folded jeans all day. I was also a lifeguard at my local pool.

    Worked as a computer chip layout designer for a while at age 14. Was paid $12 per hour under the table until another kid screwed it all up for us. Our dads were engineers or something similar.

    Cleaned up at the racetrack at age 15. That job sucked.

    Always cut grass, shoveled snow and had a paper route.

    Delivered Dominos pizza at age 17. Made serious coin because pizza sold for a huge price back in the 80's when I was doing it. Found a way to cut coupons out of the newspaper and submitted them with my total take.

    I was selling up to $500 per shift delivering pies which cost the store around $100-$150 to make. I probably made 10% in tips, and another $25 in coupons each shift. Oh, and I earned $5 per hour on top of that. It was lucrative. I took home nearly $100 per shift, even after factoring in the gas/car.

    Pizza used to cost $15 for a loaded large pie. Adjusted for inflation, it would be nearly $30 today.
