Getting A Paycheck

Before making it big, Tyler had several small jobs. One of his most terrifying ones was at FedEx. “It was just, the spirit there, just older dudes just pushing boxes but okay with it, and it scared the living hell out of me, so I quit after a week and four days,” he told Jimmy Kimmel.
