What Was Your First Job?
i was 13, a dishwasher in a bowling alley that had a seperate bar and restaurant and banquet halls, they were open for lunch everyday, it was rite in the middle of an industrial park that was over a mile wide on both sides so it was busy everyday. my mom was the bartender during the day till 7 for the bar seperate from the lanes, we lived a couple blocks away too. i worked there till i was 18
i was then a stockboy at 16 for all the bars. made sure there was always beer, alcohol, soda hooked up to the soda guns, changing the beer barrels. putting all the beer bottles that didnt break in cases for recycling. everynite. the bartenders throw them in a tube that sends them downstairs. id go home with band aids on the majority of the week
then i worked at the front desk answering the phone, giving out lanes and shoes for people who wanted to bowl, taking care of the leagues
and i worked in the pits, behing the bowling machines. taking care of any problems during leagues or open bowling. pins stuck, if somebodys ball got stuck. anything that went wrong, resetting pins. i switched between the desk and the pits. long boring nites, from like 6PM to 1:30 2AM after school, 4 to 5 nites a week, then weekends whenever. i just sat behind the lanes with the machines, it was loud, leagues were going on. you had to sit there alone all nite, bring homework or whatever. there was a radio, i played solitaire thousands of times
