I have actually never had a job before, not a proper one anyway!
Guess just born lucky! Something like that anyway. Had my first appointment at a employment agency today! So I guess I will soon be in the rat race! Since leaving University my mental health went down hill, now I have a lot of people looking out for me, so onwards and upwards.
Born into a bit of money. I did once do a work placement while at university, which I earned quite a bit of money from, but I am still waiting to land my first proper job! I also don't spend money on anything else.

My first job was working for my dad washing up by hand. Three to four hours at £1 an hour. I was fourteen. The hours got longer as I got older...
Happens to the best of us
It was in 1999, I was 18 and working in Dixons. It was orribble, I had people like you lot expecting me to know everything and making me feel stupid!

Ooh, forgot about that, I washed up on Saturday's in the canteen at the car auction my mum worked at when I was a teenager, can't remember what the money was like but that's where the car interest started (and the first time I ever saw a Sunbeam Lotus *gush*).
Before that though the very first job was two weeks working in a mate's dad's metalworking factory, tons of overtime, I remember getting what seemed like a fortune at the time, and I lost about 2 stone! It was dull though, and I've hated the smell of cutting fluid ever since...
No signature worth mentioning...
Just out of mild curiosity, how old are you, cos I think I'm a mile off with my previous guesses...
First job after school was as a managing director's assistant/computer programmer. I wasn't qualified for either.
Lasted 3 months. The final straw came at the Xmas party, after a bit too much drink, I compared the MD's secretary to a bucket.

Which was what out of interest? We have known each other on here for a while though.
I had one of those albeit not the Lotus, in haste i blew it up going to see Jack Dee in Bournemouth with a date onboard. Needless to say i never saw her again.
Which was what out of interest?
Mid-40s! Although I couldn't give you a reason why I thought that.
Really? I have kept myself to myself really. 33 on the 31st December!
I genuinely was going to say 32.
But like when you do the lottery, and all 6 numbers are one away, it amounts to nothing. " />
Blimey. How about you guys then?

I think not knowing people, or their age, is part of the attraction of forums etc. So I'm not saying.
But I do look and act younger than my years.
I think I'm close in age to the_Lhc, but I'm not sure.
Actually, he's gone a bit quiet on this post, they say the older you get, the earlier you go to bed.
