McLinky Monday - Worst Job

The RHOK

The question of the day over at The RHOK is
What is the worst job you've ever had?

I've had my fair share of jobs.  I've taught kiddos, worked at Home Depot, been a receptionist, and filed my little heart away at the Bursar's Office at OU.  

The job Michael always likes to bring up is when I was employed at the Beanie Baby Cart in the Sooner Fashion Mall.  It was my college days and we were newly married.  I just needed a job to have some extra money.  Michael would always call me his "junior bread winner".  I hated that.  He knew it.  So, he said it as often as he could.  The truth is that I didn't do any "bread winning".  I bought lots of Beanie Babies and sometimes wouldn't even have much of a check when it was pay day.  I loved those things.

The WORST job I ever had was not the Beanie Baby Cart.  
It was Roni's Pizza.  
The actual job was pretty fun.  A lot of my friends worked there and we goofed off a lot.  I might have been locked in the "ice box" a time or two, but other than that it was mostly fun and games...with a little pizza making on the side.  We had great calzone and we got to eat for free!  Bonus!

However, my boss...let's call him Moe...because that was his name.  
He was a tightwad cheapskate ...think "Mr. Krabs"... 
and he called me "Hennifer".  
When he wanted my attention or was telling me to do something he would whistle...but he couldn't.  You know the kind of whistling little kids do when they don't know how?  Yeah, like that.  So, he would fake whistle and say "Hennifer".  DROVE ME ABSOLUTELY CRAZY.  
I couldn't understand hardly anything he told me to do.  
I just winged it most of the time.  
Then he would yell at me for getting it wrong..."HENNIFER".
Crazy, I tell ya.  He drove me crazy.
 I only worked there one summer, but it was enough for me.


What was your worst job?

I bet you were the best pizza waitress ever. That food looked SO delish. I could totally go for some right this second!

Oh good lands! I still have tubs full of beanie babies. I wish I would have cashed in on them when the going was good! LOL!

Bad bosses are the worst. Fortunately I've not experienced a really bad boss. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't make it a day, if I had.

Thanks for playing along, Hennifer! Bwahaha!!!

Ebay those Beanies and make lots of MONEY! :)
Um. Why did he call you "Hennifer?"
I worked at a pizza place and it sucked.
But by far the worst job I had was the cannery. UGH!!!!

Well, it's a toss-up -- truck stop waitress or field hand on a vegetable farm. Both sucked BIG time. Then again, I only lasted at that sales job one day...:)

Neil and I were actually discussing this over the weekend b/c he currently has a "tough" employee.

I have to say that I've been blessed. At the time, I know I complained about each of my jobs (outside the home), but they always offered up a lesson and some fun. I do, however, love my current job best!

OMG, this is so funny. You made my day!!
Thanks for following me. I was going to start follow you, but I already am, cool.

Jobs in food are never good!

I hated working at Burger King. Thank goodness it was short lived.

Michelle said...

LOL- I collected beanie babies too! now I just let my nieces and nephews play with them. Even though your manager sucked, it sounds like the job itself at the pizza place was good though so that is good. I worked at a Mink Farm which was HORRIBLE! I only worked there because my boyfriends parents at the time owned it. But it stunk really really bad (worse than a skunk) and the Mink would eat their babies which was gross, and there were spiders EVERYWHERE. I was not sad to never go back there again! :)

We collected Beanies too! Had fun doing it!

Nothing worse than a fun job with a bad boss! The worst job I ever held was at a nursing home.... a very bad nursing home!
