    The Worst Job You've ever had?

    Mine was with the WalMart distribution center warehouse. I will never buy anything breakable from that store since I saw what happened there. WalMart is cool, but they had us doing some crazy stuff just to fill up the outgoing trucks. I hated that job. Tell us about your worst job.

    Uhh I haven't been employed very many places, as I'm still young lol. But I think I would have to say the job I work at at the university now, I love it 96% of the time, but in the winter when there is a blizzard and we get 2 feet of snow or the temperature is -10 with windchill, and I'm stuck walking around outside and I can't reach my radio cuz I look like the kid off the Christmas Story or my vest makes me look like a 700 pound Michlen Man over my 85 layers, definitly would suffice as my worst job at those moments.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Fire Tower Supervisor at a nuclear power plant. The turkey vultures would land on top of the tower in the summer and peer down over the edge, as if to ask if we were done baking yet. That, the mind-numbingly dull non-activity, and a 10 story climb up and down stairs just for a potty break (in a portapotty no less) was a bit much.

    I worked at a Subway when I was 16, it sucked the big one. But hey, I can always put Sandwich Artist on a resume.

    Ignoring the Travel Agent job I have now... also excusing the idea that people sent their 18 year olds to be educated by me(what the FUCK were these people thinking).. while I was also in college.. the worst job I had was when I was at McDonalds. I did enjoy my time, the second time around, at Big R. (The first time I was fired for being a rebel) ( The second time I wasn't fired.. by the skin of my teeth).

    Working for my Dad as a kid on a farm in Texas.... Made me vow to never get a lifetime job that was manual labor!

    As a cop, like Stan I had a 2 month stint as a supervisor in radio. It took me that long to get out. I was transferred there while I was on vacation. I never worked with so many neurotic people in my life. They were all working lots of OT and many were perpetually tired. The building was also w/o any windows.

    Yep. I made my platoon Sgt pick the point man. I didn't have the nerve to do that day after day.

    Inventorying grocery stores while I was in college - We had to do it starting at midnight, then it took like 8 hours, then drive to another store & do it too

    Often we'd reach behind some canned goods and get a BIG surprise - like an open package of liver that someone had stuck behind there a week ago that yours truly put his hand in...

    And in the back room, a puffed-up can of rotten cat food sitting on a box fell in my brief case and exploded - Talk about stinking, I had to throw the brief case away, and went to the post office to copy all the paperwork. I left the stinky papers and brief case in the post office trash next to the copier

    A girl working for me suddenly jumped off her stool, and ran down the isle screaming "snake!!! snake!!!" at the top of her lungs - I went over and raked the can goods back with a broomstick, and discovered a half-eaten link of smoked sausage laying behind them

    Actually it was kinda fun, come to think about it.

    Worked as a contract janitor. Cleaned everything from residences to offices. Had to clean shit off walls at a factory bathroom a few times.

    Had some insight into the way people lived as a cleaner, and now I'm back at it in a different capacity. Sorta brings new meaning to the term "cleaning house."
