My first job: Amusement Park

My first job was a seasonal gig as a ride operator at our local Amusement Park, Seabreeze. I only made minimum wage ($4.25/hr), but I loved it. I never had to be into work before 10am, the people I worked with were fun and most of the park visitors were there to have fun which made work fun. By the end of the summer, I could operate 11 different rides and had earned enough to help buy a new bow for my violin.

Wow - How expensive are violin bows? Yikes!

It sounds like your first job was a lot more fun than mine at Burger King - if you don't count paper routes :)

My first job was at the checkroom at the pool of an amusement park in Rye, NY called "Playland". Earned a whopping $3.35/hr in 1985.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
