Paper route aside, first job with a pay check (typed on a company account) was a carwash when I was in 7th grade. On the weekends, four-hour shifts (there were three of us, each with a shift on Saturday and on Sunday). The place had four indoor wash-it-yourself bays, one outdoor...
While I would keep it sealed, I would use that as the excuse to grab one for shaving. Slims are - IMO - highly under-rated as daily shavers. Fatboys get all the love.
I have two Slims - one nicer one that is in the rotation as home and the less-shiny-but-still-great one that is my travel razor.
You can still pick it up at Walgreens up here (Twin Cities, Minnesota) with the free-after-rebate promotion.
In fact, just this week I received my rebate check from a December purchase and it included three more free-after-rebate cards (well, up to $8.50, which is about the price here) to give...

This, after five or so years of acquiring various Gillette DE razors (including a President, a Diplomat and various other Aristocrats) and a variety of blades in most of them. Scary...
Onotoman just replated a very functional but quite ugly '30s Aristocrat for me. This *was* my favorite daily shaver, but now it looks so nice I a don't want to spoil it.

This stuff is fantastic. For cream, I usually use one of the Crabtree and Evelyn creams (nomad, sandelwood, etc.) and am happy with those. This...
Just added one about two weeks ago and using it in the rotation since.
I am a fan of the '40s' Aristocrats and Diplomats, my favorites on the shelf (which includes a Fatboy, a Senator, a Slim, an Aristocrat Jr., an Old and a New and once had many SSs and a Milford or two). The '30s' open...
