Today's blog-a-thon prompt is to share a first.
I got my first job (besides babysitting) when I was 17 at the mall. The store I got hired on at was Northern Reflections which I thought had totally disappeared by now but I guess it still exists up in Canada. I made $8.00 an hour and told women that their sweaters were sleek and the boot-cut jeans really elongated their legs.
It is here where I note that my fashion sense (or lack of) has always been a lot more function than fashion and I have never been too particular about things matching. I had no business telling other women what looked good on them.
This is what the store looked like:
When I wasn't doling out compliments and flattery, I was following the customers around right before closing time and refolding all of the sweaters.
I only worked there for six months before I moved on to becoming the smoothie girl at Mervyn's California, another mall staple that eventually met its demise.
What was your first job?
