Funnest summer job you ever had?

I had a lot of different summer jobs growing up. When I was too young to babysit I would mow lawns with my brother. Our mom would take us to our neighbors and sit there while we would each mow half the yard and then split the money. Then I babysat for a couple of summers. I worked in a clothing store. Working in the clothing store was my favorite job because I would set up displays. It was the 90's so anything went with anything. I lot of my combo's were purchased which I thought was cool. Then there was the summer I worked on my cousin's farm. That was the funnest job. I helped to build a temporary fence. I didn't have a clue what I was doing. To this day if you asked me I really couldn't tell you. I remember we put up a metal pole, stretched out a roll of fence and put it up. The best part of that summer was my cousins hired quite a bunch that year. There were these guys that were constantly drunk and that had to be the funniest thing to watch. My cousin would drive all over the farm and they would have to open and close gates. The funniest was watching the drunk fall out of the truck, riding the gate as it swung shut, with him on the opposite side. Then he would half climb half fall across the gate and fall into the back of the truck. That was entertainment especially when this would happen around 8 in the morning. What was the funniest or best job you ever had?

When I was younger, I often babysat during the summers. It was a great way to make some money. Not to mention it was super easy! For a couple of years, I watched kids that were older. I made lunch a few times. Mostly I was just there to make sure nothing bad happened and to be the transportation to and from the swim club! I miss those days. I wish I made enough money doing that. I would totally do it again!
