I was 19 years old, almost 20, single and still living at home with my mom.
I didn’t have a job nor any experience to speak of to put on a job application.
Without a reliable vehicle, public transportation didn’t extend out to where we lived, making finding a job difficult — and I wanted a job where I could gain experience for the future.
College hadn’t worked out, partially because of the transportation issue.
1972 was going to start out very, very different.
