Started out a delivery boy, and ended up a glorified delivery boy... As a teen, I maintained a Jr. olympic pool at a country club, I now manage the solution production area of a baby wipe plant, which basically makes me a glorified pool boy-tanks, pumps, plumbing, chemicals, etc. Like a pool, but on a grander scale...My first real job was delivering furniture for an interior decorator in San Diego. I was 17 and it paid $1.25 an hour. My boss was amazing. She taught me to drive a stick shift van safely. My last job before I retired a year and a half ago was as a delivery administrator for a defence contractor delivering naval weapon systems.
