@St3

I suspect most people on this forum are well advised about scamming methods, indeed some of the latest scams are often highlighted on this very forum.Smiley

Re: #MyFirst7Jobs

I'm boring and unadventurous with just two jobs

Bank worker, though given the diferent functions may coubt as more than one.

Inland Revenue..tax collection.

@Mav What a chore that was in my time! The job must be a mystery to some.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Just the first one, which was as a barber at our local maternity hospital - it all went downhill after there!

Re: #MyFirst7Jobs

Only 4 in my case:

(1) Paper-boy - needed it for pocket money because my dad was tight, and Mum didn't have spare for 6 kids.Sad

(2) 6 months trying to sort said dads business - while looking for a proper job.

(3) 30 years doing numerous jobs in production offices at steelworks - for those that know the goings on in the Sheffield steel industry, I started at Firth Brown and finished at Allvac.

(4) Back to paper-boy after I had to take early retirement.

Now fully retired.Smiley
