  5. My only cash pay packets were as a student in the 60s - worked in a TV/record shop in Bootle for £3 a week (cash on Saturday at 5pm - no tax) and on the post office sorting office in Liverpool at Xmas I managed £20/week after tax on nights with the cash at the end of the week in an envelope with holes in. .

  17. I used to work in a chippy peeling spuds and chipping them for 35p an hour on Saturdays in 1974/5, I did get fed though. My first full time job in a garage in 1976 was £20 a week, I gave my mum a fiver, filled up my Yamaha Fizzy, bought 10 No.6 a day, went to the pub every night and was down to coppers in my pocket by Friday - happy days.
  18. Luckily I was similar but didn’t smoke so I was minted :D
