jobs I have had

  • Head Cashier – Dad had a small supermarket.  I was a cashier before age twelve.  In those days you figured out the tax and change yourself.  Now what happens when the cashier forgets to press the button that figures the change?  A manager has to come with a calculator. 
  • Income  Tax Preparer – I worked one season for a major company – never again.  Tried it from home for a while, but folks make you crazy with phone calls, so I gave it up.
  • Saleslady – I’ve sold it all: Fuller Brushes, costume jewelry, vitamins and health products, ad space, booths at exhibitions, custom-made business fixtures and electronics.
  • Secretary – Our floppy disks were actually floppy.

  1. I remember the floppy discs too – that was a loooong time ago! I actually had to change out huge reels (like they have for movie theatres) for back up tapes on a nightly basis. I think I am ancient. :)

  3. I remember floppy disks too – but it’s hard to remember what work was like before email. I faxed everything!

    thanks for visiting my blog! I love your photography, these church and graveyard ones are so atmospheric in black and white.
