That time of the week again and we are almost all the way to the...
So, I was a college student back in the mid 90's and needed a job that had flexible hours so I could squeeze in between classes and homework. A friend of mine got me this job at his brothers place. I had to do some commuting to get there. It was in a, almost empty large garage/industrial space. And it had one piece of equipment there. Can't remember how the machine looked like but it was for bending metal. I was to make 90° metal pieces with this manual gadget. I can't remember how many days I showed up but I think it was only two - my first day and then the day I came to the conclusion that this was the worst job ever! All alone do the same repetitive task for hours. So I quit. Didn't have any other prospects but quit anyway. It was just too much. Few weeks later, an unexpected opening in IT Support for a law school opened up (I has been hanging around there, hoping...) and I've been involved in technology ever since :)
But I am thankful for having been offered the job - helped me realize what I didn't want to do in life.
Tell us, what is the worst job you've ever had?
Let’s make it a great Thursday!
