I've helped be a dishwasher, busboy, and a cook at a restuarant (but mostly the dishwasher). That's pretty much it unless you want to count stuff like helping people out with yardwork-like things (Lawn mowing, raking, helping cut and haul wood.)

EDIT - If you really really want to stretch things, I job trained at the County Treasurer.

Ya, dishwashing sucks. I did that about 15 years ago. The owners were Greek but was a family restaurant. The food was pretty good.



-Pizza delivery


You got any interesting delivery experiences? I once had a woman answer the door totally naked. :D Although she was shaved between her legs, I have no doubt that she was a natural red-head. I also had a blond girl, about 25, hug and kiss me. Both were pretty nice looking.



- Taking care of wild animals (like moose, deer, lynx, fox etc...don't know what that kind of work is called in english)


Taxidermy? Veterinarian? Park Ranger? :scratch:



Apart from Musician, nothing of real interest to me.

I know what you mean. Actors have to act. Even though the prospects for almost all actors is bleak, they still pursue it. Only about 2% of actors can make a living out of acting.



I'm hoping to put Medical Doctor on that list one day :)

That's interesting. If I were ever to pursue a medical profession, I'd be a surgeon. Doctors and surgeons, two very different mentalities.

Oh, I forgot one - I sold lemonade at a lemonade stand during the summer. On the weekends for special & cultural events. I worked about 4 hours each time and got 75 bucks for 4 hours. I had to run the stand with my sister, though which got annoying after awhile.. :scratch:

Some surgeons like to act as general surgeons AND doctors. They have the same background.

If you ever make it into the profession, you'll see that there is definite a hierarchy within the hospital. Any nurse could tell you about it. Even an investment manager could tell you the difference between a typical doctor investor and a surgeon investor. The type of people that choose either profession is different.
