Quite a few I haven't had.

But, I've mowed yards, picked strawberries, carried groceries, stocked shelves, flipped hamburgers, washed dishes, pumped gas, bucked bales, picked corn by hand, de-tassled corn, brakeman on the rr, draftsman, built pre-assembled houses, design engr., quality engr, tool & die design and the one I like best RETIRED after starting work @ age 10 carrying papers. So 56 yrs in the salt mines is enough.

I worked as a yard switchman in the Silvis, Rock Island and West Davenport switch yards for the Rock Island Lines right after High School in 1969. I wanted to go on the road, but did not have the connections with the people that made those decisions so I quit and went back to school and got into the electronics business.
I was not 18 when I graduated so I could not start with the RR, so I worked at the 2 & 92 junk yard till my birthday, old coot should know about 2&92.
