I’ve been paid for a lot of different functions. Here they are, in chronological order and obviously with no forethought.
McDonald’s window man
language lab technician
truck driver, mail collector

When I was growing up, a guy would take any job he could get, and that’s what I’ve done. I’d usually start out looking for something in particular, but I took whatever there was.
My mother nagged me for years about quitting my job at the post office. A good job. You see what I was up against.
I’d been an adult for quite a while before it dawned on me that I could do something I cared about and make a living at the same time. I knew of people who did that, but I didn’t think it applied to me. Actually, it applies to you, too.
