Righto, anyone got funny stories about a job they started and it was that bad that you lasted only a month, a week, a day, an hour...?

I worked at an abotoirs while at school which was okay until one day they sent me down to the gutting room and i snuck out and never turned up again haha...

also i started a job and didnt realise i was one of them scamming sales reps at a mall... i quit after one terrible day!

I've had 2 jobs, one lasted 1 year 9 months, and the other 2 years 5 months and counting...

I got fired from my last job after one day. I worked at an abortion clinic. They found aborted babies in my backpack as I was leaving my first day. I guess wanting to take them home and research them was against the rules.
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...

i never left a job short term but my first job i had for 3 years part time after school and uni was crap and there was a big football game on, so i walked out to watch it in the pub next door.

My other jobs have been 5 years and 3 respectively. I had an office job and one day after 5 years i was like IM DONE I WANT TO GO!. So i arranged unpaid holidays-left after 3 days notice and said i would go on study leave for 1 year and never went back,

I just work summers and this past summer some guy came in (we were understaffed at the time) and took a sick day the second day he came in. He basically did nothing but take personal calls and manage the fax servers (about 7 minutes of work to do out of an 8 hour work day).

He got canned after about a week and a half.

I got a job that I didn't want out of desperation, and then found out before I started that I could probably get a better one.

I went to start there, found it was as bad as I expected, quit that day and proceeded to get hired at the other place on the same day.

I used to have a job for about 3 years, then I quit because I was bored, now I'm at my new job of four weeks.

The shortest job though is sperm donor, depending on how good you are.

Back at the place I used to work, it was a buffet, mind you, the dish washers in the back would bring booze in every Saturday before and during their break. It was so funny.

i worked at a car wash in my area for 4 hours...it was winter and i was soaking wet and the shifts were 12-14 hours...it sucked...he told me to go on lunch break and i got in my truck and drove away right in front of everyone...


the best part was, i came back a week later and demanded the money i worked the 4 hours for.

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

I've only had two jobs.

One involved sitting in a park all day which was quite lovely as I could shoot hoops and take naps and I listened to music and drank slushies and read the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" but it paid an illegal amount of money per hour (I never figured out how the village got away with that) and it got tedious being forced to spend eight hours in a deserted park all day thus proving that once anything becomes a wage laboring activity done on someone else's time it becomes tedious and lame no matter how pleasant it would be normally.

Now I work in a nursing home where I hang out with old people with various forms of dementia and make beds and watch TV all day and my boss goes home hours before I even get to work so I can pretty much take a day off whenever. It's awesome.

I went on vacation for 10 days without notifying anyone and I still had my job when I gt back.

I once, somehow, managed to get a second job at Hollister, I worked there for a grand total of 20 minutes.

I quit a job working at a health unit during the training because it was against my morals.
I would have had to be part of an anti-smoking campaign, which would have been just plain hypocritical, and for extra money they wanted me to go around to variety stores with a fucking pig and try to buy smokes without an id so that the cop could bust them.

i worked at the zoo here for a while hiring out the golf buggys and bikes to people!!! during the off season it was quiet as so i would bring my acoustic and football(soccer ball) to work... till i cracked the window of a car and they complained then the boss came down and seen i had my guitar there as well and yer... its safe to say i got fired!

My very first day as a Papa John's delivery guy I was fired for dumping marinara sauce on the manager and knocking him out.

He actually did deserve it, however I've already told the story, and as it's rather long, we'll leave it at that.

It's a sign you didn't last very long if you have no idea how to spell it.
