Haha, somebody doesn't like you, maybe you should sue for false advertising. As for first jobs, does selling golf balls count?

My first real job was at a ski hill, no expereince required either. I had to get up at 6:30 am and drive for an hour to work. I had t o write a simple test then i was accepted and then i was put on the bunnyhill (ski hill for toddlers)
since not many people had come that day, I ended up riding the snowmobile arond and I built a igloo. it was a easy but boring job.

My first job was finding lost golf balls... well it wasn't really a job, my dad made me do it, and i wasn't really getting paid unless you count stealing the occasional golf ball and selling it to dense golfers... mannn those were the days... since them i've been unemployed... living the hard life, i reached an all time low when i considered working at maccy D's... but thank God the good Samaritains helped me through that ugly period...

My first job was as a party hostess at a local leisure centre when I was 15. I thought £3 an hour was pretty good back then.

Before that, the only work experience I had was babysitting and the odd bit of (unpaid) football coaching.

Washing up in a restaurant. Real slave labour, even though I was under 18 (16). I worked 6 nights (5-12) and got £42. I quit the next week.
