Today's Prompt: What was the worst job you ever had?
I would have to say that I pretty much liked the jobs I have had and each served a purpose at the time. If I had to pick though it would hands down be when I tended bar. And it wasn't because of the atmosphere or the customers, it was the boss.
You see once upon a time when I tended bar I was about 120# soaking wet. So were all of the other bar tenders/cocktail waitresses. We were required to wear short short skirts and high high heels with low cut tops (get the picture?).
Not only that but Paul (the boss) had OCD and a black permanent marker. When we would leave each night there was a list of things that had to be done. I am all for cleaning the place, I mean we are serving food and drinks right? But he went to the extreme in the clean.
See after we left each night at say 3:00 am, he would come in at 7:00 am and go through the whole restaurant bar with his black permanent marker. He would check the sinks, counters, floors, bathrooms, etc for any sign of dirt and then take his big black permanent marker and circle it. Even water marks are unacceptable so if he looked in one of the sinks and there were water marks, he would circle them with the marker. Then he would call us when he was done and we would have to go in and scrub the marker off of where ever he put it.
Other than that it wasn't a bad place to work and the people I worked with were great. In fact I am still friends with a few of them 20 years later.
What was your worst job? And why?
