I am not suggesting that "Salty Dog" become the place where language is used that is often the case with truckers-no insult to them. Surely folks there has to be more interesting topics at least on this forum than how to peel a hard boiled egg. I insulted one girl badly enough to cause her to take a break from "chat"-not something I am particularly proud of. Really believe the other forums should be used or done away with. Linenlady's post of this am said that when there was one forum it was rather "spicy"-believe that was her word. We have only one forum which pretty much everyone goes to and stays that is anything but spicy. Please, Justin speak up-Linda

Ah, jeeze, now what? You don't like eggs either? What do you have against eggs?

Okay YOU pick something interesting, unboring, and unfilthy to talk about, that belongs on the Salty Dog.

But first, go find your happypants. Your grumpypants are wearing thin.

Knew a girl in college we called Candy Pants. She was sweet.

GEEZ I'm old. I would rather have a topic such as how Lodi-very popular here- shaves her armpits-than the stuff that has been appearing here. I've certainly had my differences with Chick but at least she backed me up after we shared things about ourselves and afterwards suppose because of my typos was accused of saying the posts returned to sh--! That is not what I said and most of you know it. I just hate the Drivel to quote Chick- so drivel all you want to folks-getting too old to keep taking the heat when others back out. Some of you are very intimidating people though-done for the night so carry on with this stuff-perhaps as someone once suggested I should be ostracized-prefer being stoned though-Linda

Lodi - do YOU shave your pits? And do you eat boiled eggs? Lodi is popular, isn't she? If something happened to her they'd have to close the whole school down. (Breakfast Club reference)

Linda, let's get stoned together.

Breakfast club quotes, hahahaha. Well, unlike Molly Ringwald, I can't put a lipstick in my cleavage and do my lips. I'd have to have about a foot long tube of lipstick, I'm afraid.

And I do shave my armpits, if anyone is interested.

They don't make lipstick long enough, and I don't wear it anyway.

Only been able to hold a pencil for about the last 10 years.

Gravity works.

I shave my armpits twice a year whether they need it or not. My legs I can do with nail clippers - 3 hairs on one leg, four on the other.

I, for one, am most certainly NOT sick of you, I just want you to relax and have a good time and not be so upset.

Heidi: move one foot a bit and rock that chair; it is proven to lower blood pressure and release endorphines.

Sometimes when I am interviewing people and I want to get them at ease with just some chit-chat, I'll ask them to tell me about their first paying job and what they learned from that job. anyone interested in telling about THEIR first paying jobs?

Mine was when I was probably 7 or 8 years old and the hog pen was full of cockleburs and my parents paid me 1 penny for every 12 cockleburs that I pulled. The thing that I learned is that I don't like those old sows after they've had pigs can they can be downright onery!

My first earned money was quarters, earned by walking the streets of East Baltimore with a bucket, brush and Ajax cleanser, scrubbing those famous white marble steps for two bits a house, to get movie money to take my sisters and brother to Elvis movies on Broadway on Saturdays.

My first job?

A human mosquito meter.

Back in the day, the South Carolina Mosquito Abatement program would pay teenagers (and stupid ones at that!) to drive to remote corners of the Lowcountry each morning, get out of their truks and count the number of mosquitoes that bit them.

The worst spots were given double-red flags, and the Death Bomber (and old DC-3 that sprayed Malathion) would bbe dispatched to deal with the devils.

It only took me two summers to wise up.

I was a soda jerk at a Kisels drug store outside of Detroit. More than sure the job nor the drug store chain has existed for eons now. The store used to sit right on the corner of Ford Rd. and Telegraph for those of you who are familiar with the area-Linda

My first paying job was when I was 16 and I worked as an aide in the local nursing home during the summer. Bought my school clothes with the money I saved and also had money to go riding around on Saturday night with my cousins....

Hey Heidi, I was a soda jerk, as well. I worked for a man named Sharkey Sookey (who could forget that), the lunch counter was located inside a Bellman's grocery store in Toledo. I was 13 and that was the earliest you could get a work permit.

At fourteen I mixed mortar and carried concrete blocks for a buck an hour.

I scrubbed enough of those steps to buy my mom a Singer treadle sewing machine for $16 for Mother's Day 1960.

The next year I was old enough to babysit and rake in the big easy bucks.

My first grown-up paycheck job was from Carr-Lowrey Glass (a division of Anchor-Hocking), inspecting Avon bottles under a bright light in a dark room for $2.10 an hour - good money in those days. My husband's first job home from the army (he was stationed in Berlin when the wall went up) was as a shipper for Railway Express at minimum wage - $1.50 an hour. He brought home $53.50 a week after taxes. Ground beef was three pounds for a dollar and a 2-bedroom furnished apartment in a decent building on a quiet block was $88 a month.

Wow reading about scrubbing the marble steps brought back memories of living in South Philadelphia and scrubbing those steps with Comet cleanser. Thanks for that.

My brother and I used to go around collecting soda bottles to return for the deposit and then took that money and bought soft pretzels. We would then go back to the neighborhood and sell those pretzels all the while looking for more bottles. We would use that money to go to the local movie theater but first hit the corner candy store and come out with at least 100 pieces of penny candy to split between us.

Another thing I did with my best friend was check to see what the matinee was on Saturday and then go to all the moms on the block. We would take all the little kids to the movie, sometimes filling up two whole rows at the theater. We would collect all the money, hit the candy store and buy lots of penny candy. When we got to the theater, we usually had enough so that my friend and I got into the movie for free. It worked out very well. Moms got a break, the kids got to see a movie, some cartoons, a Three Stooges or Pink Panther short, eat Mary Janes and my friend and I got to go for free.

My first paying job was like many young girls - babysitting - I actually ran a summer camp for the kids in the neighborhood - great fun - that's how I earned the money to buy my contacts - woo hoo!

My first IRS tax contributing job was S&H Greenstamps. I had to check people out after they shopped in the store and count all the pages and make sure all the stamps were in there and that the count was right for their purchase. I loved the little old ladies who would come through - they always called me sweetie and honey and were so very proud of their stamp saving books and the fact that they had enough to buy a lamp or a table that would go "just right" with their living room. Very fond memories!
