So many firsts in my life... How about my first job? I don't think I've talked about that before.
Sure I had a few babysitting jobs as a teen, but my first Real Job™ with an actual paycheck was for a company that sold magazines over the phone. I was horrible at it! Calling up people -- we went down a list from the phonebook! -- at dinner time and offering them magazine subscriptions was just not an enjoyable job for me. I don't think I even lasted two weeks before I left. I can't remember if I quit or if I was fired for doing so poorly, but I did learn that pushing sales on strangers was not the kind of job at which I would ever excell; I am way too nice.
