in the world
carrying on from the ego thread in General,
Worst job I ever had was PR for the Child Support Agency. I walked out of that one and it was very highly paid... Death threats?... about 6 a day.
Hardest physical was foundry worker, I did it for 2 years and had blisters on my blisters
I used to have a girlfriend whose Saturday job involved injecting the gelatine into pork pies.
She used to smell reet lush.
In my archaeologist days, I was the first into the cyst graves to check on the condition of the cofffins.
I typed postcodes into a computer for royal mail. 8pm to 6am, 1000's per hour, fuled entirly by caffine and heavy metal.
worked in incontinence wear for six months. The delivery drivers would come in to collect the delivery sheets that had been produced. the stories... one old lady would put the pads in her slippers - one in her ahem (the correct place), so the slipper pads were for the overspill . She would answer the door in these padded slippers. Senile...
I left cos I got *peed* off with the boss who was having an affair with my colleague and she kept b*ggering off and leaving me to do all the work whilst she spent hours in the bosses office checking his tie was straight.
I paid my way through college working as a night cashier at a petrol station. Worse moment was being robbed by a bunch of goons who kept on running at the door until they realised that they weren't likely to get in and that choosing a garage which was approximately 200yards from the nearest police station wasn't too clever.
On another occasion I was repeated abused by a drunken twat who didn't seem to realise that we have microphones on the forecourts that pick up everything in the dead of the night. Not only did I gob over his sausage roll when I warmed it up for him but by the time I got back to the service hatch he had fallen over and pissed himself - lovely!
Barkles, you may be able to awnser a question or 2,
I'll bounce up a genealogy thread
working in the shipyards. Future father in law got me job as a labourer and boy was it tough and not to mention bl**dy dangerous. Thankfully only worked there for a month but it was the longest month I've ever done.
Another was working as a temp data in-putter for pound stretcher which was roughly around this time very repetitive and under paid!
Actually another one was me and my future missus running round as waiters at a work colleagues dinner party.... but it was nice to see how the other half lived!
