Kumasi Aaron: "What's the worst job you've ever had?"

Oprah Winfrey: "Oh, the worst job I've ever had. Well, I've only had a few. The worst job I've ever had was working in a little dime store where I was working in the back and stocking the shelves and I wasn't allowed to talk to the people. The other worst job was working in my father's store all those years, but now I'm thinking maybe it wasn't so bad because at least I learned how to tolerate a lot of different kind. You know the drunks come in, everybody from the neighborhood. I used to say to my Dad 'all those years I worked and I never got paid' and he had cookies for pennies. You'd have to sell 100 to get a dollar! So working at my father's store and working at the retail store."
