I got my first after school job at a small family-owned store. I really enjoyed the experience – I loved restocking the shelves, talking to regular customers, and going through simple sums at the till. We used to sell cans of lemonade for 73 cents, loaves of bread for $1.06, and packets of cigarettes for an even five. I can still recall the price of every item we stocked. I remember when Smith’s introduced foil packaging, when liquorice sticks made a five cent price rise, and when orange flavoured Lifesavers were withdrawn from the market. These days I struggle to recall my desktop password, can’t remember the names of half my colleagues, and, at least once a week, leave my lunch sitting on the kitchen table.
