    Best - floor sales at a big computer store. Loved interactions with clients and giving advice on custom builds. Fun people to work with. Did it 2 years full time and part time while in college.

    Worst - current job. I've been to funerals that are more fun. Soul sucking office job with no appreciation at all. My boss is retarded. I could write a book on how not to run a business (I might, actually). I hate it so much I can barely get out of bed in the morning at this point. Applying for other jobs as we speak.


    How about you guys?

    best job - merchandiser at Toys R Us. Tons of interaction with young(post-pubescent) wet bitches


    worst job - selling cheap chink shit. Followed up on an ad for a warehouse job but when I got there all of the warehouse jobs were filled.....but they did have openings for sales people. :rolleyes: Had to be there at 5am for the morning chant session (J.U.I.C.E - Join Us In Creating Excitement). Had to drive around selling complete pieces of shit to people, then back to the office for the 6pm chant session. I think I did it for three days. One day I just had enough and around lunch time I drove my box of chink shit back to the office and went to local recruiting center.

    Best was a part time Marshall job at a country club in my mid twenties. Worked 1 day a week and had all of the privileges as a member. Very cool head pro. Every other job pretty much sucked.

    Own my own business now and dealing with employees and subs is a massive pain, but it pays the bills.

    Best Job: As a teen, worked a couple of summers at a tiny amusement park. It was heaven for a boy whose glands were out of control.
    Best job as adult - worked in telecom as tech writer/trainer/training developer. I just loved the work. Paid great too.
    Worst job as adult - Nothing really too bad. Worked under a monster for a few years but I lived. Actually, worst job might be the current one. I'm a shitty salesman.

    Best: Ticket tearer at a one screen movie theater. It didn't pay well but it gave me gas and beer money and I got to watch movies and eat popcorn and let my friends in for free which got me laid a few times.

    Worst: Busboy at a restaurant. The manager was like a drill sergeant that would stand there screaming at us to hustle and pick it up no matter how fast or slow we were moving. And the cunt waitresses never tipped us out the right amount. I mean, we cleared the tables so we knew exactly how much they made.

    Best: Union Longshoreman

    Worst: Pepsi-cola vender @ the Kingdome during sporting events. Carrying double stacks of soda slung across my shoulder, climbing up and down steep stairs, yelling at people to be thirsty, and having them throw money in my face.

    Worst: Bag boy for a grocery store. The time seemed to stop during the bagging and delivery to the car process. It felt like I was on the clock for 24 hours a day.

    Best: Hard to decide. I have been very lucky in my work life. I have been given many opportunities to succeed. Sometimes I took advantage of the opportunities, sometimes I just let them pass. I'm certain I could be a wealthy man, bit I'm glad I still have my class.

    Not too bad. We're running about the same amount of crude thru there as we usually do. Some middle management types may be sweating a bit, but the operation side isn't worried.

    A buddy of mine runs an exploration outfit in Abeline... we haven't gotten boozed up enough recently for me to ask him about it, but I think he's sweating.
