The other day Bossy read an article about celebrities and their first jobs, where read an article equals she watched something on YouTube.
For instance, did you know Gwen Stefani‘s first job was working in a Dairy Queen?
While Ozzy Osbourne‘s first job was in a slaughterhouse:
McConahey McConnauhey McConaughey‘s first job was shoveling chicken manure:
While Amy Adams saved money to buy a car by working at Hooters:
An early job for Brad Pitt was dressing as a chicken to promote a California restaurant:
Bossy got her first job the summer she began Junior High:
Bossy’s first job was a chambermaid for a seashore motel. Every morning as the sun was coming up, Bossy and a few other teenage girls getting paid under the table would gather in a utility closet, where they would refill the necessary cleaning supplies for their carts, gather stacks of soaps and toilet paper, fold hot sheets out of the dryer, and wish they were guests in the motel instead of cleaning it.
Then the girls would divide into pairs and conquer, each with her own list of rooms which were designated either Check-outs or Make-ups.
Checkouts required way more work, such as changing the sheets and scrubbing the bathtub. When it came to cleaning, only one product was necessary, from the ashtrays to the toilet bowls, and it was called Brevity Blue, which as luck would have it is still stuck to Bossy’s nose hairs so she can describe its odor: melted rubber mixed with sea foam.
Bossy liked making up rooms way better than checkouts because all she had to do was smooth the bed, tidy up the bathroom, and change out the towels — which left Bossy lots of time to collect the visual clues that helped Bossy build a narrative about the guests inhabiting the room.
Bossy liked to imagine the guests were honeymooners, people having affairs, runaways, and happy families spending their year’s savings on three rainy days at the beach.
Bossy can sum up her years as a chambermaid in this way:
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy about your first job?
And be sure to check back later today for the jobbiest firsts on the web.

Ooooh. Chambermaid. Kinky.
I had so many different jobs–I cleaned houses, babysat, worked washing dishes, worked as a receptionist–I can’t remember which one was first.
So my 10 words for all of them would probably be the same: Slacking, poking into hands off things, reading, writing poetry, bored.
Except for the dishwasher job. There, one cannot slack. Best part of such jobs for me were the snooping and the illicit novel reading.
