If you're a parent in East Texas right now you're probably hearing one of two things right now. Either "I'm bored" or "can I have some money".

My first job was at 14 years old as my dad bent the rules for me to begin making my own money as a host at a restaurant. That job taught me so much about real life, and I have so much respect for food service workers ever since that first job.
