The summer after high school, a bunch of friends and I worked at a school supply factory…picking and packing orders.  It SUCKED.  I quit & went back to lifeguarding.

Why did I do it?  The $!

When I was in college I worked for a real estate agent, cold-calling people to see if they wanted to sell their house…..ummm….NO!!!! CLICK!!
That didn’t last long….I think about a month…then I went back to my dept. store cashier job….it seemed fabulous after the dang quasi-telemarketing.

Data. Entry.   I was a temp one summer in college and it was awful…definitely gave me a reason to keep forging ahead and get my degree!

My worst job was working at a pet store (oddly enough, the one I met FI at). It was a lot of fun unless the owner was working because she was my cousin and tended to be kinda hard on me.

I decided to go to a college that my dad worked out.  my freshman year he got me a job with campus dining.  A couple of nights a week I would swip dining hall cards for students.  And 1 night a week i would work in the campus "fast food" place, making sandwiches to order.  I hated it so much..I would cry before going and have to come home and shower right away because I would stink.  2nd semester when i was suppose to go back…i just told my dad that i checked with campus dining but all the job were filled…Then I got a job in the bookstore.

Concessions at a local pool in highschool! I smelled like grease all summer long even after I had taken a shower. I would scrub my skin raw and still smell like a french fry.

Working one month at build a bear in college. Selling underwear for stuffed bears and talking about "beary special friends" and a "pawfect outfit" drove me insane!  

 

I still don’t know which was worse!

Laundromat…. nothing like spending already-95 degree days in a room with 25 overheating dryers– temp up to 105 at least, washing other peoples’ under-roos. Including Clay Aiken’s under-roos. Ugh. Disgusting job.

 

 

That said, I don’t mind doing my own laundry.
