"Ditto to the poster who said paper boy.  I had routes at two different times in my life.  You learn customer service and responsibility very, very fast.  I cannot tell you the correlation I have seen of people later in life doing well…"

"Well if you wait a little bit longer till you are 16 you can be a lifeguard. It's a lot of responsibility and teaches you to be assertive and cautious. There is no room to mess up in this job. You have to be fit, calm in rough situations, and…"

"At 15, I was shoveling shit and flipping burgers. Since then, ive done everything from construction to salesman and now I run a Gastropub... as many others have said... there is no such thing as a "manly job". Just the real men doing them."

"First of all, it is manly to work.  It is not manly to not work.  There is honor in work.  There is dishonor in laziness.  The seemingly lowest employee of a McDonald's cleaning toilets stands a mile above the slickest…"

Native Son replied to Lynn Jones's discussion What is a manly job for 15 year olds
"The correct answer is any job that isn't abusive and doesn't interfere with your school work. "Manly"?  That's merely doing a day's work for a day's pay. Owing to laws and insurance, jobs for anyone under 18…"

"When I was 15 1/2  I got my first job at a local car wash.  I'm not sure if it was manly or not, but I've always loved cars so being able to be inside of a variety of cars (especially the very nice ones) was a great…"

"At age 15 I wouldn't worry about how "manly" the job might be. Sorry, but in today's economy it is not unusual for teenagers to be competing against their adult aunts an uncles for the same jobs. Several have mentioned paper…"

"I worked as a paper boy and now work at a small local produce store. Paper routes are great because they don't take too long, teach great work ethic (you have to complete the job, even if the conditions outside are terrible), and also they…"

"At 15 in today's economic climate any job is a good one to have and consider yourself lucky. As for  manly, it ain't the nature of the work that makes any job manly but the nature of the man doing it. Hustle, bust your ass, take pride…"

"Any job where you show up every day, do a good enough job to be proud of the amount of effort you put in, and can honestly say to yourself you deserve the paycheck you brought home is a manly job. I don't care if it is watering daisies,…"

"My first two jobs were bussing tables at a country club and doing groundswork at a golf course (simultaneously, and both when i was 14). Both taught me valuable lessons about responsibility, integrity, and motivation (as well as instilling a…"

"I fully agree with 3.  We have allowed media to teach generations that flipping burgers, stocking selves, (nursing for men) was some how demeaning and below them.  This is wrong thinking.  If someone does good work and brings home the…"

"Paper boy. Don't laugh.  I was one; you get used to real world real quick; People don't pay you. Dogs chase you. You are out in the rain and snow and heat and cold, early morning. Welcome to the world of work."
