My First Job Was

While I did yardwork for neighbors at an early age, my first “real” job was making pizzas at Pizza Hut. I loved that job; this was a long time ago and the brand was the hot thing in Richmond and we were always busy! Great boss, great team efforts although I smelled like onions when I went home at night!
