I works hard for me money


Crappy jobs. We've all had them, haven't we? I was musing recently on what i consider to be the worst job i've ever done. And before i go on, i'm not ashamed to admit i've done early momo cleaning in this town. But this job i speak of sure did take the (cabin) biscuit.

Anyway, not having the good fortune to have been born with a silver spoon in my gob, i had to work my way through University. I got a job as a Market Research Telephone Interviewer, which is the height of soul destroying toil, and i challenge anyone to say otherwise. The only redeeming factor about the job was you could choose which days and times (i.e. day or evening) you worked each week. Talk about drudgery. This was it!

First Job I did when I came to this country was working at Burger King for £3.15 an hour. Then, I was given a payrise of £3.33 (whoopee!!)
I refused to do 'Early-Morning', though.. :-)

I did market research for 5 years on and off. My soul died. We used to get 25p payrise after x amount of hours. Sounds sad but them 25ps made a difference then.
