Get to Know Me: What Was Your First Job?

I’m a member of an author/book reader facebook group, and the admins ask great questions. I decided to turn some of the questions into a “get to know me” series. I would also love to hear your answers to the questions posed in the series. Thanks Helen for asking such fun questions!

What was your first job?

My first proper job was at 15 years old as a grocery checker at Jitney Jungle in Jackson, Mississippi. I was eventually promoted to bookkeeper/front end manager before moving out of state at 19 years old.

Before that, all the grandkids were required to help our pappaw in his yard mowing business. He paid us, and it was hard work in that Mississippi humidity and heat! All the grandkids were required to help in the garden, too. We got paid for that by the food that our mammaw canned and cooked.

What about you?
