Dad took me down to the milk depot early one morning and I got a job helping on a round weekends and bank holidays.Great money for a 13yr old and being extra-polite = tips. Plus that amazing pint of orange juice on the ride back to the depot. -

i knew a lady who collected real cats and ornamental frogs ... she paid me to dust the frogs ... there were thousands of them ... one day i asked her what would happen if i broke one ... she said it would be ok but showed me her favourite and said to be careful with it ... the same day i was dusting it and went butterfingery and ker-pish!!! ... no more favourite frog ... i lost interest shortly after that-

I am from a bygone era. I was picking blueberries and selling them. The best I was ever paid was 18 cents a pint. Then at the age of 16, I worked in the woods with an axe and a bow saw (bucksaw) in the heat and with the flies. The next summer, I worked with a chain saw. Hard but healthy work in the fresh air, no pollution -

I picked blueberries and sold them for $3 a bag. Also I mowed yards over the summer for $10 a pop. I would usually make $60-$70 a weekend -
