    Mine was making cookies at a cookie shop in the mall. I've never gone back to that cookie place either. Not that it was dirty or anything, I just realized how totally overpriced cookies at the mall are :)

    I had a summer job working for an airline caterer near Gatwick. Not only did I have to be there by 5am but I also saw how airline meals are "assembled"

    I worked as a dairy stocker at the Piggly Wiggly while going to college. I loved the hours (6am-2pm) but hated the work and being in a jacket all day rotating expiration dates in the fridge. The job lasted 3 weeks!!

    A waitress in a tea shop when I was 15, the boss was an absolute b! She made me so upset that I didn't go back. She refused to pay me for the time I worked so my Dad went down there I ended up getting a bonus too lol

    I worked in a local factory that usually assembles Christmas Hampers but in the 'off-season' times they do assembly for L'oreal. On my first day I spent the whole day sticking tester stickers on lipstick. It was so mind numbingly boring.

    hmm, let's see.

    When i was a teen i cleaned a local building society in the evenings....until i almost set the place on fire, then got locked between the main door and security door and had to be let out by the fire brigade who called the manager for the keys. I was sacked shortly after

    Also as a teen i washed up in a local restaurant, it was horrible and i asked for a night off to go and see a concert. Stupidly they told me it was the concert or my job.....didn't take me long to decide!

    And AGAIN as a teen (you'll see a pattern forming here!) I washed up in a nursing home, collected trays from the residents rooms and such like. One day i had to babysit a girl i used to look after and had to taker her with me, she was maybe 10 years old. The owner happened to be there and told me not to do it again or she'd sack me.......what a shame that i offered to babysit the girl again shortly after!

    LOL! Mairead, you are a woman after my own heart! :D

    I was going to say the worst job I ever had was working for the US postal service, but that experience has been trumped for the # 1 worst job by the one I left in July. Can't give many details, but will say I am NOT going to work for a company that has no ethical underpinnings or regard for the people they are supposed to be serving. 'Nough said, eh?
