Lets talk about jobs that was our first ones. My first job was waiter in a small coffee shop near my High School. I was just 15 years old and I wanted to have my own pocket money for myself. I early started smoking cigarettes and I loved to spend time in coffee shops so I couldn't ask my parents to give me money for that, I earned for it alone. However, I quit my first job after just 10 days because my grades got worse and I started to skip some classes. When that school year finished I started to work in a better cafe, bigger and with more job so that was very challenging for me as I was never worked something before that (except that small coffee shop). First time ever I had a situations with bad and angry bosses and very hard job so after two months I was ready to start over next school year and find myself a better cafe or restaurant with better boss. And so like that, I went to school and worked part or full time until end of high school and some time after. What was your experiences with first job?

When I was around 13 I started to babysit a 5 year old child in the summer time and I did that until school started. My next job was at 14 when I was a car hop at a place that was run by a neighbor man. I did that after school and on week ends until I was 16 when I started to work in a hardware store, I did some book keeping and waited on some customers.

I worked in a large law firm when I was 14. I was a kind of service worker. I washed the dishes after the meetings, took the mail to the post office and things like that. It was a nice place and I had a nice time with the other students who worked there.

My first job was working at a restaurant, filling drink orders as people came in. I was only 15. On April 1st, April Fool's day here (prank day) my boss told me they were going to cut my hair off because it was too long for the job. I ran to the bathroom and started crying. They also wanted to stay later than was legal, as I was on a work permit and couldn't stay past a certain time on school nights. I worked there only about two weeks before quitting due to those things.
