Question: What was the first job you had when you left school?
Aaargh - it was a horrid one!
Junior sales in the 'Ladies' department of a prestigious shoe shop. It was next door to a much less prestigious pub. My first task of the day - every day - was to go down to the cellar - put a bucket of water to boil on an ancient gas ring (HSE would have had a pink fit!) and then wash all the frontage of the shop - including cleaning up any vomit, urine or dog faeces. Wonder how many of today's junior staff would cope with that ?
