Growing Up In Idaho: Cool and Crappy Jobs

So, the question of the day is, “What kind of cool or crappy jobs did you do as a kid?” Now I’m not necessarily talking about cleaning your bedroom or doing the dishes. Those chores are foisted on pretty much every kid in existence and we can all agree those chores are just painful, but they have to be done if, as a kid, you want to stay in the good graces of your mother.

What I’m talking about are those jobs where, as a kid, you made money and had a boss.

Something like scraping out pig sties or cleaning the milk barns or hauling wood for the stove. Maybe you were the lucky kid…
