Im just about to go off and flog some windows over the phone.
Whats the wrost job you've had?
general retail work for £3ph, when i was 14. im too cheery to look at a job as 'bad' really
more of an obvious typo
I hear they're magical places
but apparently we weren't selling, we were offering a "completely free, on strings attached demonstration of our adjustamatic beds".
Abuse, hassle and sales all for the princely wage of £8kpa full time. All this whilst they pay Samual L Jackson £2million to gibber a load of nonsense to sell their products, make ridiculous profits and the bastards at the top smuggly sat in Lombard Street watching their bonuses soar into the solar system knocking Pluto off orbit.
you don't live in manchester do you?
this was before 'centralisation'.
and finding out those people who had bad gambling habits was always a chuckle, but the number of bad tempered people around is incredible.
on the Isle of Sheppey in December aged 16.
I lasted 2 shifts.
because by the end of the second one you were pregnant by and married to your cousin.
little Chanel is doing just fine thanks for asking, the doctors say she'll leran to speak any day now she's just on a slower learning curve...
Both of which were quite enjoyable. The wages were pretty shit though, if that makes up for anything. £2.93ph when I first started.
not including temping!
i thought you were a boy...congratulations!
working in a factory in Spalding with a load of Polish chaps, watching those crappy plastic containers of soup file past me on a conveyer belt thing, making sure none of them fell over.
A grand total of NO CONTAINERS fell over. Man, that job hurt my eyes/brain/soul.
my clothes would get caked in it and I'd end up with it up my nose. One time, I walked home from work in the rain and my clothes started foaming.
and brings a new meaning to multi tasking
that I'm going to have to do it again!
has made my morning.
I once worked in an off license run by a Nazi-paraphenalia collecting Jehovah's witness. It was very strange, but thankfully tax-free.
putting lids on soap crystal bottles. :(
The factory was shutting down and my job was to move old sheets of fibreglass from one place to another (including sitting with the sheets on the back of an articulated lorry at one point), then to knock down some stud walls with a sledgehammer. We shared a safety helmet.

which station are you travelling from? And which station are you travelling to? Sorry, the computer says Birmingham New Street doesn't exist. Oh wait, yes, next train leaves there at 14:32. Yeah, 14:32, it's 24 hour clock -=sigh=- Yeah, just turn up at half 2ish in the afternoon. Please hold the line while I disconnect you...
