For a laugh: worst job(s) you've ever done...

Recommended Posts

I always managed to get myself into trouble during uni with some of the worst jobs around.

 

Bin cleaner: Driving around Melbourne in a beat up old van cleaning the bins at apartment complexes with a pressure cleaner. I can't think of any realistic amount of money that would convince me to ever do that again. The bins always had these unique smells that made me gag and the pressure cleaner would blast bits of rotting garbage that were caked at the bottom of the bin back in my face. Used to find heaps of maggots and the occasional used needle as the icing on the cake. The only relief was when people put their cigarette butts in the bins because that would slightly mask the smell.

 

Catalogue delivery: I didn't ask around enough about this "job" before I went and tried it out. I never knew how much effort it was to distribute a ton of catalogues around a few hundred properties. Half the time was taken up with collating about thirteen different catalogues into individual sets. The rest was carrying a ridiculously heavy duffel bag and dragging a trolley behind me so I didn't have to keep going back to my car for more supplies. And the pay equated to about $3 an hour with the amount of time it took. On the off chance anyone out there is as naive as I was and is considering this for even a second... Just don't. Seriously think this job shouldn't exist. I have no idea how the old chinese lady who does my area keeps it up.

 

I'd like to see what else tops these for crap work.

i remember going on holiday with a few boys from work

we all went to Thailand

any ways one of my ugly fat mates went and got a girl from a bar think he was paying her like 40 buxs Australian to spend the night with him

anyways i looked at my other work mates and said " i dont care how bad my job is and how much i hate it any job is better then getting paid 40buxs to f*** that fat C*** " :lol:

now every time im at work and doing a shit job i dont like i just think about some poor girl in some poor 3rd world country having to **** some ugly fat bastard for peanuts

 

[edit] i just remembered walking in on him while he was having sex with her

he was on top of her pounding away and i couldnt even see the poor girl all i could see was little hands and feet :lol:

 

another time i knocked on his door and he answered the door in his undies and i thought he was naked because his gut was so big it hung over his undies and u couldnt even see them any more :lol:

supermarket cleaning. 4-5 years ago when i came here as a student there wasnt much of choice for us to pick on jobs. So had to do wotever that comes. It wasnt that bad until i had to clean the toilet bowls. Damn, you would wonder how those people did manage to spray the shit like dat. Some wont even flush. Women's toilets are even worse. period blood spills and used tampons on the floor on daily basis. Only did that job for 3 months and i did quit even without giving em a notice. Guess they had to clean their own shit atleast for a day

^ Sounds like you were underpaid as all hell.

 

It's not disgusting or anything but man, delivering the Messenger newspapers in SA was the worst job. I was 15 and delivered to the second biggest area in the state. All up about 400 newspapers which I had to fold with advertisements and slip into the little plastic bags which took about three hours. Then after that I had to deliver them all usually by dragging a fat trolley behind me for about three hours. Five weeks of that and I'd see $250 in my bank account, so so shit.

Was a chicken catcher for a month or so before I scored a job in The workshop. (left the job anyway). But basically you go to a shed the size of an aircraft hangar full of chickens that have been shitting/pissing/some dead ones for the last 1-2 months and the smell is undescribable. Burns the back of your throat, your eyes water, sneeze like crazy. Any clothes you wear are unusable after as the stentch doesn't wash out. It also gets under your finger nails which stinks for a days after. Another plus to the job is getting attacked by the larger ones with their gigantic claws/beaks.

 

All in all not a bad paying wage but the working conditions over-rule it 10 fold.

Back in the day my best mate did house restumping. Sometimes he would by lying in a space just big enough to crawl into with a shovel the size of ya hand digging all day getting bitten by spiders and whatever else was down there in the middle of summer and then the freezing of winter. Man he had some serious bites on him sometimes.

Making lattice was a shit job. The guy over the road from me owned the company, he paid me SFA to do do the biggest deadshit job ever. All the other employees were toothless crims who couldn't manage to rock up without pulling a cone or shooting up in the car in the morning. I left after 2 days claiming I injured my wrist skating the night before.

 

Working at Scheffenaker (spelling) for a few weeks during temp agency placement. Making car mirrors..... stand in a cube with a few other bitter people that hated their dreary life and screw 4 screws into a mirror casing. After lunch we all swapped position so I might've have been luck enough to either fit the mirror to the casing, test the mirror movement or some other highly stimulating menial task. Got fired for cracking the shits too much.

 

More temp work:

Scwheppes factory - watching bottles come in on a conveyor belt, making sure that as they feed from a clusterf**k into a single file none of them fall over and jam things up.

Box factory, loading card into a machine so it was cut the right way to later be formed into a box.

Worked at the local smallgoods factory for 2 nights. pay was awesome, breaks were great (every 2 hours) but the job sucked the big one. My role was to unpack frozen boxes of meat and put them on a slide to be fed into the mincer for sausages etc. you would come back from the first break and put your gloves back on which were wet and cold as ice, and you would stand in the one spot like a tard. not to mention i scored night shift so only a couple of other workers plus myself werent druggies... was great listening to them talk about cocaine and smoking weed /sarcasm. not my thing for sure.

i used to drive around female escorts for a job

 

your sister giving you petrol money for driving her to town does not count.

 

 

otherwise, not terribly bad, but a 14 y/o subway girl 5 years ago got ~$7.40/h where i was working, not that i could talk, i was on something around $11/h
