    OMG, reading some of these are like watching people eat gross crap on Fear Factor. I suppose I would have to say my current job is my worst. I love the work, but the management has a tilted view of how to make a buck. They cut our pay at the start of the year, then told us we don't get raises this year but our Christmas bonus would make up for that. Got the bonus today, it didn't. I work for a company that does pavement marking, we paint roads, parking lots and runways. I love the work, being outside and all. Hoping to start my own business doing it back in Colorado someday so I can come back home and work for myself.

My boss should be out of the office for a couple months though, so that'll be nice... i can spend even MORE time on this board then! LOL
      Well a numptie is someone who is an idiot, not your sharpest tool if you know what I mean?! Its a wee bit of Scots slang, we've got hundreds of slang words but I'd be here all day typing them all down!!

        my 1st job was bad

        Try making x-rated movies. The money is good, the females hot but as a guy they expect you to be on the set at least 5 hrs. a day. After about 1 1/2 years I quit [Try working a 5 day work week doing that] Im outta here.

              The worst job I ever had was working in an ice factory.

              We would take the bags that came off the conveyer belt and stack them on pallets (200+bags each). The bags weighed 20lbs so after a while you got seriously fatigued. Not to mention that they kept the temperature at 0 degrees. Then when the auger (spelling?) got jammed frequently so we had to go to the freezer and unjam it with a big rod. The freezer was kept at -30 degrees and anytime you touched a piece of metal a piece of your skin came off. To go to the freezer you walked out of the packing area (kept at zero) had to go outside (100 degrees in the summer) and then into the freezer area (-30 degrees). That just messes up with your body.

              Then about once a week we would go deliver the ice to all these different places. We would start out with a entire semi full of ice and usually stop when we ran out (took about 8 hours). Since I was the biggest guy that went on deliveries I got the "Oh ****" route. We would travel from Pueblo Colorado to Raton New Mexico along I-25 (hitting every store and market along the way) then come back and go through cuchara and levita. It was not uncommon to go through 3 semi loads in 2 days with about 4 hours of rest. Talk about work!! To unload the semi's you have to throw the ice the entire length of the semi to the driver who would load it onto a dolly then I got to push that dolly into the store and then we unloaded it.

              I was sick a lot during that summer because of those working conditions, and we were paid what amounts to 6.00/hour in today's money. By the time the summer was over I weighed 230 and had a 7% body fat.

                  My worst job? Working at a grocery store deep in the ghetto.....I don't have time or the effort to write down all the crap I saw...let's just say it would make a great indie movie with a bad ending.

                      Let's see......as a kid...

                      worked on a pig farm and shoveled shyt in the hot summer months.....man I was so glad when the farm bought the Bobcat. Had to wade in ankle deep shyt for months.

                      Cut the nuggets off farm animals, always fun and makes you appreciate your own.

                      Washed dishes at a buffet restuarant. Wasn't bad, but after 3 days, my shoes would turn into wooden clogs and curl up on the ends like Arabian boots. Even though this is off topic, we were right next to the kitchen. They use to put this yellowish goo in many of the dishes, mainly desserts. This stuff was like Elmers glue. You could scoop out a big hand full and start rolling it in your hands at it would form a solid ball, weird huh. You could then throw it like a baseball and dent the cooking pots. Once it hit the pots, it would turn back into a glue like substance and run down the pots like glue. Don't know what it was, don't want to know. Something that weird probably causes cancer............
