|Another boring job-related question! Sorry!

I'm looking for a second job to do part-time and most applications require I provide three referees. I'm really struggling with this!|
The problem is, the job I do now is a family business so I cannot list my parents as referees (or can I?). The previous job I had was almost two years ago, and I have lost touch with everyone I worked with.
I don't do any activities outside of work except for going to the gym, and I left school too long ago to consider asking teachers.
Any ideas on who I can ask to be a referee? Also, are employers usually very strict on the referees you provide (eg, would it hurt my chances if I listed one instead of three, or listed an uncle/aunt or friend?)
Thanks for any help!
