What kind of jobs have you held during your life?

In honor of Labor Day let's think about the jobs we have had during our lifetimes.  Here's my list of paid work.

Babysitter
Department Store Clerk
Biology/Biochemistry lab assistant (mostly a bottle washer LOL)
Data Collector
Elementary School Teacher's Aide
Clerk
Dental School Equipment Assistant
Research Assistant
Mental Health Facility Staff
Grad School Teaching Assistant
College Instructor
Training Dept.Manager
Organizational Development Consultant and Dept. Manager
Consulting Business Owner
Executive Coach

I'm sure I missed some. One job I never held that surprises me is Waitress. I haven't listed the unpaid work - parent, housekeeper, cook, gardener, seamstress, dog trainer/walker, etc. And the volunteer work - PTA President, Band Boosters officer, Friends of the Library President, event volunteer many times over, etc.

Think about your working life. What have you "labored" at? What would you do again because you found it interesting or enjoyable? What do you wish you had done? What do you plan to do still?
