People Talk: What was your most unusual job?

Rick Adams, El Dorado Hills
“I worked as a seasonal firefighter on and off for two years. I was on a couple memorable campaigns, including a large fire in Sequoia National Forest. I should have kept that job. I’d be retired now.”

Kris Persijn, El Dorado Hills “€œI was the gift wrapper at an Orchard Supply in Sunnyvale when I was 16. Was it easy? You try gift wrapping a hammer.”€

Frank Bringino, El Dorado Hills “€œI played guitar in a rock-n-roll band called The Sultans. We made a couple records and a little money. A couple years back I found one of our cuts, not even our big hit, on an oldies compilation album.”€

Ellen Weinbalm, El Dorado Hills “When I was 16 I sold budget sports apparel at a store called €˜Gertz. I was a pretty girl and I was a great salesperson. If I was wearing it, I could sell it. Back then it was camel’€™s hair coats and plaid skirts. They flew out of the store.”

Don Kay, El Dorado Hills “€œI was a good bowler when I was young. My best game was a 279. I hung out at a bowling alley a half block from my house, and got offered a job there as a mechanic, fixing the pin setting machines. It was a good job and an important place for me. I even met my wife there.”€
