Make them up. You worked at Comet, Woolworths, Jessops, HMV, Patisserie Valerie, Carillion, Poundworld, Toys 'R' Us, etc., depending on how far back you need to go. Heck, if you look on Google Street View at the areas of your town at the areas full of restaurants then about half of them will have gone bust since the pictures were taken; you worked as a waiter for one of them.
All that is holding you back is a lack of ambition and creativity.
