    Until last week I was a steward in a theatre. This job involved checking tickets, showing people to their seat, selling ice creams and dealing with (non stop) customer enquiries.

    I start a new job on Monday as a GPs receptionist and medical secretary.

    I have worked in a 99p shop which mostly involved being threatened by shoplifters and in the laundry of an old folks home which was a pretty shitty job (literally). Now I wanna work in a clothes shop. You could try working in a hotel, lots of my mates do that. Hard work but they seem to like it.

    I work in a wholesale. Gathering stuff and pack it for orders and such. =P It's not the greatest of jobs and although it has it's repetitions these repetitions do include a lot of variety. Finding stuff, packing it, tagging it, etc.. ;D And the people that work there are nice, too. =)

    Prior to that I worked in a Riding School. I mainly took tourists for tours on horseback as a guide, which kicked major arse (good English practice as well since I loved talking to them :D). But when I was 15 I was instructing beginners for about three months. That was the hardest fucking job I've ever done. And to make it even worse my perverted boss was trying to hit on me. :mad: Although some of the kids were adorable and that it was sometimes great fun this was just too much responsibility for me. Never again...
