All year long 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.
Michael Price, writer and co-executive producer of “The Simpsons,” talks about his first gig 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.”
