Did you have a job whilst at school?

I was thinking that the kids these days don't.
It was always cash in hand years back. I don't think that is allowed these days. I did some babysitting and worked in a coffee shop at high school.
Did you have a little job, whilst at school?

evening Sweets.

I had a paper round and a saturday job in Hillards supermarket which is long gone now. I also babysat. We were taught that we have to work for our money, many kids these days are given large amounts of spending money and many are not encouraged to work like we were

Hi Queeny.
I never did a paper round. I have never seen kids doing that these days. It was nice to have your own money as a school kid. I do remember on some Saturday nights I looked after my Dad's friends Great Danes, whilst they went clubbing.
Those dogs were bigger than me!!!! They would trash the place if left alone.

Two paper rounds, evenings and weekends plus 'bitting' - going door to door on Sundays collecting veg scraps and stale bread for the local pig farmer, half a crown for big sack full. Also ran errands for a stall holder in the old market.

That was always your interest then Rodney.
I won't ask what you got paid.
