The question is:

  What was your first part-time job?

...and here's the script ;)

Eucharia, Ireland

My first part-time job was washing dishes in a restaurant. It wasn't a very glamourous job, but I really wanted it because I wanted to pay for horse-riding lessons, so every Saturday night I went to this restaurant and worked for maybe five hours every night. It was hard physical labor, but it taught me the value of money.

My first part-time job: I was living in a small town, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and I worked for the Harmon Foundation, and they owned a hands-on, science and math museum for children, so every day I would run a laser light show, and once I was through with that I would give museum tours and explain the science and math background to each exhibit, to adults and children. It was a lot of fun, seeing kids open their eyes to mathematics and science and wanting to know more and asking questions that I couldn't answer. I really, really enjoyed that, and so I hope that some of those kids that did come in, to the museum, I hope they did create a future in science (or mathematics).

My first part-time job was as a cashier at a supermarket. I really hated it, cause I had to stand on my feet for basically eight hours a day, uhm, dealing with a lot of people who don't appreciate the job that we do, so I had a lot of people yelling at me for different reasons and always misunderstanding the situations. It's not a job I would go back to.

My first part-time job was working at McDonald's. When I was fifteen, I had a job at McDonald's flipping burgers, doing fries, cooking, not taking orders. I enjoyed it for awhile, about two or three months, but then I started losing interest in it, and after six months, I quit the job, but it was a good job for a fifteen year old.

My first part-time job was at a bakery, and this is in New Zealand and about, I was in high school then, so about two times a week, in the weekend and Fridays after school, and Saturdays all day, I would go to the bakery and sell the bread to the customers and then the best part about the part-time job was that at the end of the day, all the leftover bread, we could take home to our families, which made my brother very very happy.

My first part-time job was at a restaurant called Chucky Cheese. It's a famous restaurant in America that is for little kids and sometimes I was a waiter but sometimes I got to dress up as Chucky. Chucky is a big mouse. He's the character for Chucky Cheese, and so I was, I would dress up in a big mouse costume and go around entertaining little kids.
