Writer's Block: Lame jobs 
24th-May-2008 02:35 am
What's the worst job you've ever had?

Inserting advertising circulars into Brown Publishing Co. newspapers for $4.15 an hour. Not only was it hotter than hell in the press room, my mostly elderly colleagues were some of the shittiest people I've ever had the displeasure to work with. I honestly hope their grandchildren let them rot in the home.

Yeah I know I should respect my elders, but I learned quickly that some old folks are total asshats. My first time as a CNA in training, I was avoiding the slow hands of an 86 year old closet case...

I could tell you stories of delivering pizza to naked 90 year old women in nursing homes, if it makes you feel better;)

LOL. I used to tell my few straight guy friends that between the nursing home work and the porn store job, I've seen more pussy than they ever will...

And it's scary pussy to boot.

I suddenly have an urge to do Cheech Marin's pussy monologue from From dusk Til Dawn....

Or launch into Margaret Cho's pimp huckster intermittent "pussy play ping pong" come-ons.

*shakes head*

It's so sad that I know both of those...

Could be worse, could be Andrew Dice Clay's dirty Nursury rhymes...

Press room people are FREAKS. Witness, my uncle Brent. I think it's a result of too much heat and noise. But now, we don't have a press room and I kind of miss that thundering hum. I don't miss the old meanies, though.

Not that the editorial, advertising and graphics departments are much better as a whole, but some of the more interesting characters that have come and gone over the years have had excellent entertainment value.

They no longer use the big presses that reduced my hearing more than any concert I ever went to? That's kind of sad.

And yes, the folks not in the nice part of the paper do make for entertainment on the cheap:)
