What was your worst summer or part-time job?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
This time of year with college wrapping up & the weather warming, not to mention seeing all the landscapers, makes me think of Summer jobs. The Summer, or even just part-time jobs that you HATED. You know, something that just sucked the life out of you & challenged your will to live?

Not to be a downer, ha ha, but I thought there just might be some amusing tales, or at least people could commiserate. If I had the money, I'd be suppling a gift card to Eden to the person with the worst example/story! Alas, for now you will just have to settle for my thanks for sharing & perhaps some fleeting notoriety on the forum!

In my travels I've held many part-time or temporary jobs and I think the one where I had to wash pots and pans as well as make dinner salads was the worse. Heavy sweaty work washing no just the pans like you have at home but the big pots and heavy spoons, ladels and knives too.

I don't care how much people weigh. However, a lot of my clients were pretty rude to me. That, and both my co-workers and other customers were very unwelcoming of trans individuals and drag queens (some very professional) who came to shop.

Day care center when I was 13.

After my first week, I told them to use my paycheck to buy a cattle prod for the little fuckers.

Dish washing at a tea room. 10 hours a day in a kitchen about the size of my tiny office now. Also, between a constantly running oven a foot away from me and a dozen kettles of boiling water in Georgia summer, this kitchen would stay at a pretty constant 85-90 degrees. No automated stuff, just my hands and three sinks that were just a wee bit too short for me to stand up straight.

And holy mother of god did I hate the woman I worked for. She was constantly belittling and abusive to everyone. But the tea was tasty, I liked the other ladies that worked there and the happy customers we had. It was nice when the cook was out or insanely swamped, since I would take over and plate. Although, that meant I ALSO had to do the nine million dishes that came in as soon as another set of plates went out.

Hard work, but it built character. And allowed me to buy my first car.

Hmmm, most of my jobs have been pretty neutral! I 'worked' (unpaid, for volunteer hours) at the Rehab Center by my house, where most patients were long-term residents who needed a LOT of help with everything. It wasn't awful, but convinced me to never go into geriatrics. :/

Dry cleaning without a doubt. 100 degree weather outside, 120+ degrees inside the building.

There was a brief skirmish at a fast food chain famous for their ,um,what they called roast beef.I wore the polyester uniform with my dog collar and black nails(the 80s) so they kept me in back doing dishes. It was a bad time.

I tried to sell burglar alarms one summer - I hated that and then took a security guard job. That wasn't a great job either - but it was a step up.

It was horrible! My first day working and I was placed on a register alone. I messed up on one of the orders and the people from the grill started screaming [one of them was a manager] at me to the point the customer was apologizing to me and telling me her food was fine. it only got worse from their. Many people had come up to me daily, telling me no one should treat me like that but at the time I didn't have another job to fall back on.

I hated having to get carts at a grocery store during the summer, for reasons I won't say lol. I also hated doing it in the snow too!

I've had plenty of part time jobs that I hated, but I could go on for days and I just don't have the energy to complain about it right now!

You just made me bust out laughing when I though it couldn't be done, I was in such a pissed-off mood. I wanted to thank you for that! I am so impressed that a 13 yr old did that, I wish I could have seen it! Brava!

Sorry for the triple, damned posts! Apparently, my connectivity problems are not yet resolved!

Glad to be of service.

(I still don't like large groups of children, but I do like them one-on-one or very small groups.)
