Earlier this week during a staff meeting, the subject of first jobs came up. It was funny to hear the different things everyone did and how much they loved it or hated it!

When I was 15, I started working at a friend's parents french bakery. I worked after school and on Saturdays. I must have had a high metabolism, because OMG all those pastries! Eclairs and Napoleons were my favorite not to mention the fresh french bread and croissants. Even though I loved my job, when I turned sixteen, I had to go where the money was and worked as a checker at a Tom Thumb grocery store. But I'll never forget the fun and the feeling of independence and responsibility when I got my first job.

What was your first job?
