Worst jobs you had before joining HM forces

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Am applying for the army, but its takin fackin ages and im unemployed and am leeching off the old dear who has money problems enough without me so ive been forced to look for a job. One of the reasons i decided to join the british army was because i wanted a proud job, because i wanted to be one of the worlds best soldiers, for something above average and so that i wouldnt need some sh!tty common job. And now because it takes so long to get in (Not as simple as signing the dotted line anymore) im having to don shirt and tie, to write up a new CV, to shave, do my hair and go into Mc-fcking-donalds tomorrow for an interview and show them how enthusiastic i am about flipping burgers and bieng part of the grease-team.
    Needless to say im feeling a little bitter, after a year of training to get my fitness up, after passing my selection, all 3 interviews, medical, physical, barb test, ETC ETC im STILL bieng forced to flip bloody quarter pounders in mcdonalds.

    SO i was hoping some of you could put down a few of your own worst jobs, therefore making me feel better about my soon-to-be humiliating job. Could be a laugh aswell, was definately a laugh hearing about moody's professional rimming job. :D
  2. Womble tamer
  3. I had to rip the guts out of turkeys through their arrses. and then break their backs when I worked in the turkey factory.
  4. My mate works in the waste industry he knows a feall (and has seen him at work) who basicly sands in a sewer and scrapes the mesh clean of sh1tty nappies/tights/sany pads and other disgusting things that end up in the sewage system before it goes into the "farm" he always thinks of this fella when he's having a crap day at work. Most bone job I had was working on a production line making keyboards for IBM when I was emplyed at Fullerton fabrications or FCI as it was known locally fcukwits,criminal&idiots :twisted:
  5. I worked in a rather plush hotel once, pity about the illustrious position of sink technician :oops: .

    We started at 5pm and were supposed to finish at 2am. Our next shift started at 7am the next day. However due to people taking sickies etc we often worked through the night and through the next day until 4pm :cry: .

    Eating boil in the bag laced with sand does not seem to bad when i compare the two! 8O
  6. You brave brave man. I salute you!

    I myself merely had a part time job of clanger catcher.
  7. Fluffer for the "Old McDonald Had A Farm" series of "adult" films.
  8. Upon asking a mate of mine this question:

  9. Brilliant :lol:
    One question that has always bugged me, how do you tame a womble?
  10. Womble tamer, Sir i salute your bravery and courage. Heard of fellows like you, but thought you were an urban myth, wombles can be so dangerous. Again the nations thanks, otherwise we would be overrun with the buggers.
  11. worked as pan bash in a big restaurant on a weekend to bring in extra cash, not good.
  12. Labourer on a building site. If you have not tried to keep two brickies in bricks and muck, you haven't seen prima donnas. The bricks have to be stacked exactly so in the exact spot they want them. They take one of your precious bricks and trowel it in half. The dropped half has to be collected up but cannot be put in front of the craftsman so save himbreaking others. Tea to be brewed in industrial strength and quantity. Bets to be placed. It was a run from start to finish just to try and get ahead. I had it worse I suppose as I was the boss's son and was doing it to earn quite good money to entertain forerunners of today's Essex Girls.
  13. i was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when i met you
  14. I was a croupier... dealing cards and roulette all night long!
    Started at 1700 and finished at 0500 the next morning... What a bone job that was!!!!
  15. Thats amazing auntie, I used to be a fluffer for the wobles porn industry. Has anyone seen the classic, Tracy takes Wibledon Common. It all my own work! That Orinoco was hard work he was! The things you do for money when you're young and desperate!
