Just curious, at what age did you obtain your real first job?

I'm not talking about babysitting or working for your uncle on the side and getting paid cash under the table, I'm taking about having actual fixed hours, getting a real paycheque, having to report your income to the IRS/CRA/whatever and running the risk of getting sacked.

For me, warehouse job when 15. It felt good to have a job, and even though I was only getting around $4.00 and hour, I knew that I earned it and I could do what I wanted with it.

16 doing factory work for bakery foods. Was doing 12 hour shifts for 3 days and 1 half day. Paid pretty good!
The cancer to video games is if I fail it is the games fault mentality.
Failure is part of growth and everyone wants to skip this and go right to the success

The day of my 16th birthday, I got a job at a Marco's Pizza. Stayed there for 3 years. Got some half-ass pay, but would always have something to eat.

16. Worked a few weeks manual labour. First day we were clearing out an old building, guy handed me a pickaxe, put me in a room with a bunch of old furniture and said, "I want you to smash all this s*** up". Was pretty tight. Got boring after that though. Jobs are trash and working is for b****es.
