What are five jobs you've had NOT related to sportscasting?

We all had jobs before we became rich and famous in sports broadcasting. What were some of yours?

Bonus points if you share a picture.

I'll bat leadoff . . .

1. Prep cook at a sandwich shop
2. Selling Valentine's Day bouquets on the side of the road
3. Working at the UCSD bookstore warehouse
4. Fitness trainer at a gym
5. McPherson, KS Park Department employee. (The riding mowers were fun to drive on city streets!)

Here is a pic from my fitness trainer days:
