My first job: Working at the local mall
Shoppers packed into Tysons Corner Center, a mall in suburban Washington, on Christmas Eve.
It's almost the end of summer, which means many people are wrapping up their very first job.
We're asking people to tell us their first job stories -- what you learned, what's stayed with you, what was humilitating, what you still think about.
First up: Michael Price, writer and co-executive producer of "The Simpsons." His first gig: working at a women's clothing store at the local mall.
"It was all sort of embarrassing to me because I grew up in a family of all boys; I had no sisters. I was painfully shy around girls, and here I was working in a women's clothing store where there were women and girls walking around all the time. And I really had no clue what to do about it."
