Worst job ever

What was everyones worst job ever? I have had so many that I hated-glass collecting has to come pretty high, sleazy blokes, crap pay, a permenant headache from the music, late night finishes at 2:45 am. But then data entry rates pretty high on the worst jobs I have ever had-robotic mindless work that a trained monkey could do. And I got sacked from it! Let me know...
Oh I forgot, being a bar maid was crap too. Working in an old mans pub in a shit area doesn't get you many tips, but it does give you many come ons from pensioners, I can tell you. Never again!
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    I still think surveying that landfill site (see "most hated jobs") beats your worst jobs hands down. Cleaning a coalmine office was pretty bad too, what with all the coal dust.

    If at first you don't succeed, hit it with a bigger hammer.

    One summer I got a job working at a components factory. There was about 2 miles of conveyor belts and I did the same monotonous job for 14 weeks. All I did was put a little bolt and a screw in the component and send it on to the next stage.
    It wasnt physically demanding but it bored the hell out of me. I was only doing it to earn some money before I went back to university but the job was so bad that I now wish I had slept in my bed all summer rather than working there.

    Pint o the black stuff barman, and one for yourself.

    Mine's a close tie.

    Data entry at an insurance company, like Balddog. (I was doing quotes for group pensions... ugh)

    or

    Working at a B & B preparing food for the evening meal. Wouldn't be so bad, but if there was anyone with me we weren't allowed to talk, we had to have classical music on the whole time, and I was getting paid two quid an hour.

    mine was sitting in a bookshop that never sold any books, for 9 hours every saturday on my own and then getting rung up by the owner every sunday morning and shouted at for not doing the invoices properly or something. He also had this idea that we wud sell more books if the door of the shop was permenantly open, even in the dead of winter. I would keep closing it to keep warm. One day he rang me on his mobile to check i was keeping the door open. "Of course it is" i lied "No it isn't, i've just driven past and you've closed it" - what a wanker! <IMG alt="image" SRC="mad.gif" border="0">

    worst job ever has to be as a chambermaid one summer. the hotel i worked in had loads of contractors staying, who were on expenses and would go out every night, get totally hammered and subsequently wet their beds. i complained to the manager so she got us rubber sheets to put on the beds!!!
