I picked Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Apples, all kinds of different berries and, also ran a stand for my grandparents. Me, Gramps and, my cousins, used to haul about 20 cord of wood a year. I worked at Dairy Queen as a cook. I bagged groceries at Hanks. I hung vinyl siding on two different occasions, for two different company's. I pumped gas, which was my favorite by far lol. I have dug ditches, painted houses, helped build houses, put down tile, laid concrete, demolished houses, hauled a lot of scrap metal. I have done so many different things I can't even remember them all, oh yeah pulled staples for my Dad when he had his upholstery business.

Now that is a wide variety of jobs.. I am not so versatile. I have worked as a counselor in the mental health field for years before I switched to human resources.

@TRBRocks420 Interesting alright.. but I had to throw it up because I needed to keep my own peace. LOL .. In the mental health field I watched my seniors and colleagues land up as patients where they were once therapists and psychiatrists.

I have worked a good variety of jobs too from factory to costumer service. I would say my favorite was when I worked at the car wash. Or of course now, babysitting plus everything else I do.

@TRBRocks420 One was a school supply factory job. We shipped school supplies from the warehouse. So I guess that would be more of a warehouse then a factory. But to me it's the same thing. hehe. Maybe factory is more building and assembly huh?

wow you have done a lot and that is so awesome. Why was pumping gas your favourite to do? I haven't done all that much. I worked at a fast food restaurant called Red Rooster but I didn't stay there long. I then worked at a Chinese restaurant but for literally one day. I worked as a cleaner for maybe 6 - 7 months. And then helped out with my Aunty and Uncles home business when they had it ( they don't own it anymore ). I worked as like a secretary for a bit. And that's pretty much it.

@ivyparkgirl Well, my Dad left us 6 kids and mom so I had to work (as the oldest) to help support the family. I was paid under the table so the restaurant owner wouldn't get into trouble. Started out as a dishwasher, then salad girl and steam table to 2nd cook. My mom was the head cook.

Yes, my Grandpa and, Dad taught us all to do many things, no they didn't mostly because of rude people, but also because I love to write and, I eventually want my own business. Well a family business, where I don't have to work for anyone, but family.
