For those who haven't been over to Countless Horizons, Bruce is also the Janitor there, with some wonderfully witty prose about the goings on there.

As per the question, well, I've had a slew of jobs over the last 10 years, and some of them have been downright horrible. Like the 2-day stint at Taco Hell (Taco Bell), or the 3 months doing decontamination at a nuclear plant, or 2 weeks of telemarketing. Right now, I fix vacuums. No, not the celestrial kind, but the ones that really suck...at least when they're working. It has its moments. And it's bad moments, like when you discover that the owner of the vac uses the wand attachment to pick up little FiFi's 'accident'...and lemme tell ya...that is not a pretty sight nor smell after little FiFi's 'accident' has been in the bag, or worse yet, jammed in the hose, for several very hot weeks. Need I draw a picture?

Well, that's about all for now...time to pull yet another shift...

My worst job is the one I have now...washing dishes in a restaurant! I hate it! People never see me, since I'm stuck back in the kitchen where it is hot and stuffy...the prep cook is one cocky son of a gun, and the cook thought she was my boss! I've been working there over a month now, and things are getting better. But it still sucks!

Ive only had one job, and Ive managed to keep it for two whole years.  I started as a cashier at the all powerful Wal*mart.  Then they moved me to layaway, and man does that suck.  Especialy around Christmas time.  You run your rear end off for 8 and a half hours trying to help as many craby and rude customers as you can before the store closes at 11, and then spend the next hour cleaning the place up.  What a way to spend friday and saturday night.  In my time there I have been, slashed, stabbed(by the insides of a security tag, man those things are sharp.), burned, shocked, bashed, bumped, bruised, crushed and had all sorts of chemicals dumped on my clothes.  But hey, that paycheck every two weeks, that the government sees fit to take a quarter of(but thats another story) makes it all worth while........ NOT!!!!

Well, Bruce, you know I've only had one job....and it's both the best and the worst. On a good day I'm with a bunch of cute, cuddly babies who giggle and do hillarious things....on a bad day, they're all little monsters out to make me as angry as possible, LOL.  And as for who you are, well, that's easy!  Shouldn't everyone recognize a talent as unique as yours?  Sheesh....

Nope.  Can't be Chris -- not obnoxious (or annoying) enough.  

As to your question ... I would have to say waiting tables is the worst job in the world ... it was the brain child of some cruel, diabolical soul lounging in the pits of Hell:

"I've got it!  Let's create an occupation where someone has to : 1)deal with even the rudest, nastiest, people, and still be nice to them in order to get paid! 2)Be a silent observer to the aforementioned's odd or revolting eating habits and table manners, and then has to clean up after them; and 3) get paid half minimum wage!"

Satan was one happy sucker that day, let me tell ya ...
