The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
what is the crappiest job you have ever been in ?
Shop floor worker at Matalan during a Uni summer break. A summer selling cheap tracksuits to chavs.
too many to list had 34 since leaving school... some have over-lapped some have been part time.,.. but I have always had at least 2 jobs on the go at any one time.
Car Financer (Sales Yes Car Credit Liverpool-Warwick)
Buyer For Cash Converters (Liverpool)
probably the worst two... both legalized theft...
Maccy D's when I was 15 still at school...............hell I got Â£5 p/h and free maccy D's but I will never eat in there again not after what I've seen goes in the burgers.
Hint: Don't have mayo.............its full of protein (hint hint)
Surely when a scouser wants a new car, he nicks one.
Working as a labourer in a military workshop full of Germans - an MCTG for those in the know - absolutely hideous.
Har fookin har de har har har...
Being paid a pitance for packing eggs 10 hours a day 6 days a week, in a stinking German factory. During the 10 months I was there I had lung and throat infections at least every 2 months through breathing in finely powdered chicken sh1t day in day out, due to the cr@ppy ventilation there.
Couldnt eat eggs for years after that
Between terms at Uni, I had a holiday job helping to renovate a huge house for an A-list celebrity, who will remain anon. I was given the unenviable task of digging a trench for the electrical feed to the new swimming pool that was being built 100m from the house. Digging a trench 100m long, by 1m deep, not that difficult granted, except for the fact that to minimise the damage to an immaculate lawn, I was not allowed to make it more than 150mm wide (6")
So there I am, on my hands and knees, for a fortnight, digging for England, with a bloody COALSCUTTLE! As if that wasnt bad enough, it was a hot dry summer (remember those) and the spoil dried out, and kept finding its way back into the trench, AND, halfway across the lawn, I unearthed the skeleton of a HORSE, which had to be dug out before I could continue.
not a sapper then "sleeper"? couldn't you have improvised with something better than a coal scuttle?
Uh,no, and no!
I was just a pleb, and it was very much a case of "do the job with what you've got"
How wide would you have preferred to dig it - it's only a cable FFS!
When I qualified as a nurse I was dumped on a nurse led elderly care discharge ward. All the patients had some kind of dementia and would do all manner of bizzare things. Spent a great deal of time dealing with wandering oldies and sorting out "toileting problems". It was sh1t (pun very much intended).
The point is, if it could have been a bit wider, I could have used a spade/shovel and actually got down into the trench rather than be bent double on hands and knees. I might have shifted twice as much material, but it would have been 1000% easier.
Ihad to stick labels and stack various plastic objects (trays, mop buckets, those things u stick you plates in to dry after you've washed up etc etc). Which was then sold at that fine retailer of fine homewares. Wilkinsons.
