My first job at 16 was a carhop . A carhop is a waiter or waitress who brings fast food to people in their cars at drive-in restaurants. Usually car hops work on foot but sometimes use roller skates.

age 12 babysitting and mother took all my pay leaving me with 10p for some sweets! I babysat for 6 different families over the course of a month, this continued till i was 15.
at 14 i began waitressing at a local hotel and for the Masonic Hall, again mother took my pay.
at 16 i began stacking shelves in a local supermarket, still waitressing and odd babysitting and attending college full time too.
at 19 i qualified to be a childrens nanny and left home!
was a nanny for 19 years,
carer to my partner for 10 years, carer to an elderly lady for 12 years
had my own mini buisness making and selling kiddy birthday cakes for 8 years
owned my own pre school nursery for three years before becoming ill and retiring aged 38 due to my health.
now i am a director of a charity/limited company and a trustee for a charity helping those with mental difficulties and social isolation.

I know the sums don't add up to my age, that's because i became very adept to juggling my time and multi tasking!!!
no big suprise i burnt out!

My first job was conducting telephone surveys ~ it was rough!!! 9/10 people hung up on me rudely. Around 1/2 of those remaining on the phone were willing & able to answer Q's, while the other 1/2 kindly said, "no thank you". At least they were kind enough to give me a moment and then turn me down. Thank goodness for that 10% of the population...

I was a caretaker for an elderly woman. She was 94, and I would take care of her after school every day.
