Time Travel Tuesday


Time to share your first job experience…
What was your first job experience?
Do you remember the first paycheck, starting salary?
Do you remember your first boss, coworkers?
What was your favorite task/least favorite task?
How did that job end?


OK, my first job experience wasn’t very exciting. I was a lifeguard at one of the local community pools. I did enjoy it because I was a sun goddess back then in my high school/college years. We didn’t have uniforms or certain swim attire to wear, so it was perfect for me at the time. We couldn’t wear bikini’s but we could wear open stomach bathing suits. Do you remember those silly, dumb bathing suits? I don’t remember the pay, I’m sure it was minimal wage. I never knew or saw my boss. I was kinda left in charge because I had a key to the pool. The only thing that I remember not liking was putting all the lawn chairs in the closet every night when the pool closed. I did get to use my lifeguard skills once. A little girl around 4 was exhausted from jumping off the diving board a million times. Where her parents were, I don’t know!!!! I did develop a friendship with some regulars. A little girl used to bake me cookies.
And the coolest thing about being a lifeguard was twirling my whistle around my finger!!!!!!! Yes, I was a cool, tanned lifeguard beauty. LOL!
