I once had the job to correct you grammar and make you use capitol letters. Needless to say I failed

One of my students cancelled, leaving me with an hour in a quiet room without any distractions to practice my own repertoire. Work life is good.

I drained my balls to that first post. My worst day at work was when I was holding back tears while imagining as hard as I could the image of my head being blown open by a shotgun. I have climbed a few steps out of that pit of depression, but the blurry cold feel of it draped over me is intoxicating.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

I used to be a pot wash at a restaurant and there was this thing called the greasetrap, which basically contained everything that went down the sink as it filtered through (so all the bits of food and grease didn't go down the drain). It got full once or twice a week and it was my job to empty it out, which consisted of getting a tub and scooping what i could into a big bucket, then carrying that outside and tipping it into the sewer. This splashed up at me on many occasions.

every job has ups and downs right

once i found a plastic but realistic looking toy iron laying around in a busy bar i was working in
carried that in my hand for the entire shift without putting it down once, got lots of girls numbers )

once i hit on an incredibly athletic customer in a bar/grill place and ended up hanging out with her later in my flat whereupon she told me she was 15 :'((

once another worker caught a guy doing coke in the toilets at a bar i was working in and kicked him out, he came back later threw a brick through the windows and smashed my nose in :XDDD

I worked in a backpacker hostel .. everyday I was cleaning up puke, shit, piss or whatever .. but there was one day where there was 3 incidents in the space of 30 minutes that made me question humanity.

First .. the girls toilets in the bar part .. girls are filthy animals and always left things much more ****ed up than guys .. but this .. i dunno, a toilet was blocked, i tried to toilet brush it, nope, plunge it, nope .. it was a bowl of thick yellow brown liquid .. in the end I had to put some rubber gloves on and shove my hand down there .. turns out some bimbo had tried to flush a pint glass .. soon as I lodged it free, a **** load of shit and puke just bubbled up and over the end of the gloves so i was covered.
Soon as that was done .. hostel toilets .. some girl decided she couldn't make it to the bowl so spewed up 30cm away from it, and up the sides of the cubicle .. turns out it was pretty chunky, I had to actually get a fresh pair of gloves and move all the chunks to the middle with my hand and scoop them up .. then finish cleanin all the rest up.
The last one is just confusing .. making up new beds .. there was a kitchen towel on the floor, my mate went to pick it up and there was just this huge turd in it .. as well as a trail along the floor, like they'd done that ass drag thing that dogs do .. we never really understood that one.
Anyway .. long day.

**** no! I have an easy job where basically NOTHING can go wrong. I may get paid very little but it's simple and I spend most of the day talking with co-workers.

I was a correctional Officer for 6 years. A few years in, I had to arrest a fellow officer for bringing drugs and weapons into the facility for inmates. Bad day. To make things worse, this officer and I had been friends for years. He'd been to my house, and we'd worked side by side. we were pretty tight, I thought.

It gets worse... I got tasked with working overtime that night, because I'd been tasked with arresting the officer, I had to watch the officer in the holding cell waiting for the state police to show up. Somehow, this guy had gotten hold of a blade from a disposable razor and after telling me that he couldn't go to jail and that he was sorry, he slit his own throat, right in front of me.

Thats my worse day at work.

^ **** man that really is shitty

Well I'm unemployed now, but I haven't had much shitty experience. I've had two jobs here: Once in home theater installation (I was basically just moving TVs and speakers around, then helping the actual technician with wiring and shit) and the other being a session musician. The first one was terrible, my muscles would be sore and I'd work 13+ hours most times. It paid generously though. Being a session musician was awesome, but it paid jack shit.

EDIT: Just noticed this post is pretty off topic. Whatevz.

I am a janitor, also, at a state campus here in Tennessee. One of the buildings we have to clean is the baseball clubhouse. Well, one day they had a big fish frying event, and put ALL of the waste in one garbage can. As I pulled it out, I walked it outside to the dumpster and it tore open on me. Baked beans and coleslaw got all over me. I was convinced a pack of dogs was tracking me to make the kill.

Also, on the subject of toilets:

Once, there was a toilet that the man couldn't get to in time. He must have shit while he made his descent, because it shot upwards, onto the wall, all over the toilet, got on the floor, and even the toilet seat of the stall next to it (HOW THE **** DO YOU DO THIS).

We had to get a pressure washer and power clean the ENTIRE bathroom.

Working the late shift on Black Friday last year. Folding the children's section clothes from 9pm to 3am really sucks. Not to mention the drive to and from work which was about 45min.

Oh, the trashcarts can be demons. One of the whales (kinda shaped like a shifted trapezoid, with wheels) had to be emptied one day after it had rained, well I was puling stuff out, and it tipped over as a deluge of muckwater ran all over my feet

I really need to stop wearing my canvas shoes there.

yeah my job is at least an hour's drive. luckily the company provides transportation in form of a shuttle(bus). it costs $100.00 a month but it beats having to pay $20.00 every day in gas money. it seems you and i both work 10 hour days.

Reached my 15hr mark and had my entire shop searching the flightline for a tool i was missing, only to turn out that someone had borrowed it without permission from the supervisor i had lent it to and taken it home. I was so pissed that my expediter was bitching me out when it turned out to be his best buddy that caused everything.

Oh and guess what? Two weeks ago he bitched at me again for another missing tool. Well, that tool would have never gone missing if he hadn't f*cking given it away without me knowing.
