Shoe Shine Boy

the first skill i got was to shine shoes, not just anyones but my dads. he had a chair with a shoe holder at the end, i would polish and buff tell the sun went down, making a nickel a shoe.


Wow. But only a nickel? It’s cool that you have that skill though

I think I got a quarter from our landlord for pulling weeds in a little 4 X 4 patch of dirt on the side of our house. I was about six years old and I did a shitty job. My only other source of income was occasionally helping the neighbor lady to carry her bag of groceries from her car to her house for a dime… Even I couldn’t screw that up.
