Labor Day: My first job

In honor or Labor Day, the newspaper this morning had a whole section of people remembering their first jobs.

My first job was cleaning motel rooms in a Best Western on Route 66 in Arizona. There wasn’t much in the way of employment in the small town I lived in. Girls had the choice of motel maid or waitress; guys had the choice of gas station attendant, ranch hand, or working at the copper mine. I knew I would suck as a waitress, so maid it was. My mother had also been a maid, so in a way it was all in the family.
