What's the worst job you've ever had?

When I was first starting out, I worked for a temp company. One job I had was packing coffee filters.

That entailed plucking bunches of coffee filters, hot (and I mean STEAMING HOT) off the press and stuffing them into little boxes as they trundled past me on a conveyer belt.

It was awful. I lasted one day.

Sounds like a tough task to do for, especially for an entire day's shift! Did they make y'all wear gloves at least?? Hopefully there were gloves :S

Anyhow, yeah . . . I don't blame you for only lasting one day.

Unfortunately, there were no gloves. Just my bare hands and steaming hot coffee filters.

It was decades before I started drinking coffee on a regular basis, too.
