    From about 11 to 18 I had to do Construction, Carpentry, basic Landscaping/Agriculture, and everything from clearing out homes/destorying houses/picking-up building remains to gathering scrap metal and gravel.

    Best part? I had to do it for free.

    What have I learned from these experiences? Technology hasn't gone far enough yet, no living human should have to do that.

    Mexican * Slave = you

    ... damn i feel sorry for your poor soul. at least youll be in shape from all that manual labor.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    The idea of sitting in a cubicle, doing the same repetitive meaningless work, day in day out for forty odd years is so completely shit I think I'd rather shuriken myself in the face with my tortoise.

    As for jobs I've done;

    Barman - I work at the main rock club in my city. It's pretty awesome most nights, except when I get put in the pop-punk/emo room - they always play the same songs in the same order and there's one segment that goes my chemical romance, fall out boy, head automatica, panic at the disco and another dickfart band I can't remember.

    Lord Of The Produce Aisle - I worked in Tesco as a generic shelf stacker. Probably the healthiest eating period of my life to date.

    Sandwhich maker - I think I had this for three days before I got fired. Because I went for an interview for Tesco. They never even paid me the motherfuckers. And they made me wear a t-shirt that was tight like tiger.

    Refurbishererer and subsequent shop assistant at a fancy dress hire shop - This job was sweet beyond compare. Whenever I served a customer I'd have put a costume of something on, say a Roman centurion, then when I went into the back to get their costume I'd speedily change into something else, such as mexican bandit . And staging mock battles in the back when there weren't any customers... *content sigh*

    I worked at a camp doing hard labour and cleaning, but it was a camp setting so that was acutally good fun.

    Day Care Worker -- trust me, it'll be a while before I like 1-2 year olds again =_= they can be cute but also mean and annoying.. the one screamed so loud she had to plug her own ears =_=

    Umpire-- not bad depending on the age.. and you're in charge of everything

    Cashier/stocker/pricer/floor person... not well paid but at least it varies and if I'm feeling anti-social I can go to the back. The Boss yells though.. but our manager is an angel and I can pick my own hours, so aweful, but too convienent to leave ;_;


    Will someday say to or annoying customers (when I'm about to quit): "I'm not getting paid enough to put up with you" and walk off

    best place I ever worked was at a school for three days. Worst was a video shop....file things....clean the shop...polish.....
    I learned a valueable lesson.
    Tills.....hate me.



    No retail for me.

    I love Steal! <3

    Fast Food is and will forever be the reighning champion of SUCK.

    But it just got a tiny weenie bit better, since I have an education and I have been working at Mc. Hells for a whole three days now im a trainer, and the new trannie is 16 year old Kristin.

    All you need to do to get higher up in the fast food heigharchy is to learn how to do every thing...and read.

    And nowa days everything is done for you, it's just a matter of finding out which of the 200 beeps are to what you are currently cooking.
