Other Jobs

Okay, this is just going to be a brain dump. To be perfectly honest, I don’t remember all the dates because I worked some of these jobs concurrently with other jobs. My first “regular” job was in 1973 working at the local laundromat cleaning the washers and dryers on weekends and a few extra hours after school as needed. I emptied the trash and washed out the trash cans, got change from the bank etc… The money I found from the washers and dryers was split with the owner. I spent most of my share on pinball and the jukebox (“Smoke On The Water” and “Band On The Run” are the songs I remember the most).

  • Laundromat Helper
  • Volunteer Firefighter
  • Commissary Bagger/Assistant Head Bagger
  • Security Guard (Pinkerton)
  • Dynamite truck unloader/railcar loader
  • Site Demolition – building disassembler
  • Prep Cook
  • Collections for local music store (mostly band instruments)
  • Telemarketer
  • Bartender
  • Tavern Cook
  • Treasurer for local church
  • Volunteer at food bank (Thanksgiving)
  • Security Guard (HHS)
  • Security Guard (Securitas)
  • Volunteer delivery driver for food bank (Saturday mornings)

That’s about all I can remember at this time. I will add more when they come to mind.
