    US Postal Service. Pay was twice the minimum pay at the time and except for when it rained, it was great being outside working. Spent two summers delivering mail.

    Mine was telemarketing for MCI. I wasn't in sales, just verification of sales, so I wasn't the nasty guy who called at dinnertime. Made a ton of cash and bonuses.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Were you who they based the painting job after in American Pie 2?

    I had the same job until I graduated college. And that was in the family business which is a feed and ag supply store. Hot and dusty, yippee!

    Did you travel in a covered wagon? Did you get to meet Lewis and Clark? So many questions I would like to ask...

    I was a softball scorekeeper for two summers. Sat on my *** and kept score for adult softball games. Two of the days were women leagues.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Roofing houses every summer of college. One of my former high school coaches was the boss and he hired former and current athletes to work for him. It was nice working in the sun, making good money, and working with friends.

    Re: Best summer job

    trained and rented out my honda rebel for peoples motorcycles license. 100 bucks an hour and at least 7 calls a day inquiring about it. Made 10k profit in 1 summer for it (and paid off 3k for the bike)


    my friends thought i was a genius when i thought of it, even hired "employees" and gave them 50 bucks/lesson if they did the training for me

    Bartending - party all night, play golf/hang at the pool or lake all day. And basically was paid for the lifestyle!
