I’d detail his cars, cut his putting greens, take care of his parents’ cars, and generally take care of more personal and detail oriented aspects of the job. But even more typically, I enjoyed bagging groceries and carrying them out for the customers. I enjoyed doing a good job and helping people, even in small ways. I had that job for my last three years of high school, until I went to Thiel College, a small liberal arts college located in Greenville, Pennsylvania. Even working in the library when I was in college, I enjoyed helping people with their research and finding their sources.”
