    I picked strawberries in my early teens (14-15) as a summer job. I also had a 2-week job at a factory where I did some small repairing and painting jobs. I earned 1000 FIM (170€) on that.... :meh:

    I was supposed to deliver the Advance (Kind of a news paper but not really) I think I was 14-15. I discovered early on that no one likes receiving that rag, so I'd dump the whole lot in the dumpster behind the church. Took them about 3 months to catch on.

    After that, I washed dishes in an Italian restaurant for a year or so.

    Delivering the NY Daily News. Up at 4am every morning to fold
    and the deliver the paper to my 40 odd customers. Made about
    20 bucks a week with tips. Best part of that job was the lady who seemed to always answer the door in a see-through nightie.

    I was in 4th grade so I guess I was about 11.
