When I was 15 I worked in the local grocers deli frying chicken. Everday I would go in get a 5 lb bag of raw chicken in each hand and then proceed to bread it, season it, and fry it. Then every 3 batches you had to clean the fryer. Which meant draining the 400* grease out, scrubbing the inside, then putting the still hot grease back in. Then at the end of the night you got to take the grease pump back to the back and clean it. Which meant all the breading crumbs, chicken pcs, etc etc had to go down the drain. Needless to say I would leave work smelling like a huge piece of chicken. I also would be covered in grease and grease burns.

To a kid who is 15 getting a check every week for $120 bucks feels like you are rich. However, it sucked.

I worked in a gun shop during the Rodney King riots. I don't think it will top Spittle's but it sure was nerve racking. My boss had offered $500 for anyone to spend the night and watch the shop. I passed and went home to my family. My buddy and my boss was shot at late at night when a car tried to drive thru the front door!

I currently do dishes at my college's cafeteria. since the students know that it's other students in the dish room, they do their best to come up with the grossest concoctions ever, and send them down the line for me to have to clean up. pretty much by the end of the night, i smell like i rolled around in puke for 5 hours and i do this 6 days a week... day 7 is reserved for paintball.

My WORST was a college job that was somewhat related to my major so it seemed like a good idea....

The waste water treatment department in my area is "privately" owned, but controlled by the state. Their pollutant discharge permit requires them to monitor what is discharged, so they in turn monitor what is discharged to their plants. Here is where I come in. I worked in the department that went out and randomly collected waste water samples from a variety of industries. Not so bad when we got to visit Busch brewery, but some of the restaurants were so exciting when you would get your collection container in place and someone would flush the toilet and out plops a fresh one... then there was the grease that would collect in our equipment... the fish processing plants...the trips into the bottom of the transfer stations that were so clogged with hydrogen sulfide you thought you would puke on yourself before you got out... Ahhh the memories.

worst jobs, huh. I've had a couple. First was right before I got married. I decided to go to work for the big city of Glenwood, Arkansas. I got assigned to take care of the "Wastewater Treatment Plant" Big fun right there. Three highlights:

1) the "Racetrack". Basically, it looked like a racetrack, but it was concrete and had sides on it, about 6 feet deep. on each end were cylindrical paddles that pulverized all the solids (you know what I mean) into a nice, rancid, brown soup. The sides had to be scraped daily.

2) the "Clarifier". After the soup leaves the racetrack, it goes to the clarifier, which is a concrete cylinder about 15 feet tall that is set in the ground. Air is pumped into the bottom of the tank where it bubble up through the soup, carrying all the foreign matter to the top. That junk, which is all the stuff that gets flushed down your toilet that's not urine of feces, has to be skimmed off by hand and put in biohazard containers. The real pain is that since you are areating this mixture so much, it is actually less dense than water. That means that if you fall in, you sink. I was constantly dredging up cats, dogs, squirrels, skunks, etc that had fallen in. I fell in once, but grabbing a cross member meant that I only went waist deep. Waist deep in other people waste is not fun.

3) The Settling bins. Once the waste is clean (lmbo) it is pumped into concrete settling bins where the crap sinks and the water rises to the top. That water is removed and sent to a sand filter where it is further purified until it is considered clean and it is released into the environment. What happened to that congealed crap? Well, once it dries out, me and a backhoe and a shovel got to clean out the bins and load them on a truck where it was trucked to God knows where.

$6.25/hr was way too much for all the fun I got out of that job.

Job number two: Once I moved up in the world, I went to work as a pipelayer. Laying sewer line through residential back yards. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what you might find in someone's back yard? that's right, Septic tanks. And, since they are on our easement, we don't have to ask nice, the trackhoe knocks a hole in it, it drains down the ditchline and into the pipe I'm trying to lay.

$8.00/hr, woohoo!!

Now I lay asphalt in possibly the worst state in the world for asphalt work.

hmm, masochism much?

Haha, that's funny because we all seem have our fair share of "poop" problems.

When Land Surveying it is typical to measure the depth of the inverts of Sanitary and Storm manholes. This can be a pretty crappy part of the job. Also, at the same firm we went to a waste water management plant. You can imagine what happened next. During the tour we took some screenings of the different stages (all twelve of them). The first screening was basically the raw effluent entering the facility. These were put into sample jars. While watching this effluent pass by there was quite a bit of solids and toilet paper. What also looked to be some tampons and condoms. Yegads. Anyways, as I was examining the first sample jar, I swear to god there was a piece of hot dog in there. If that came out of someone's anus...

How could I have forgotten where my dialysis career started! A few months before graduating college, I took a job as a Reuse Tech for a dialysis clinic. My job was to reprocess or more like clean artificial kidneys (dialyzers). These were cylinders with thousands of hollow fibers and had 4 ports. The fibers were the size of a thread and the 'hollow' part were about the size of a human hair. During dialysis the patients blood travels through these hollow fibers. After their treatment, these patient's dialyzers needed to be cleaned and reprocessed on a machine which tests it for integrity. Here's the fun part, before hooking it up to the machine I have to flush the left over blood from the dialyzer with RO water. Strings of semi coagulated blood and proteins start to pour out of the dialyzer and down the drain. You then cap the ports so the RO water is forced from the outside of the fibers and out through the hollow ends. It then starts to foam out more of the blood and proteins down the drain. I know it's nothing like working with poop but it was still pretty disgusting.

I freaking couldn't eat spaghetti for over a year after I left that job. Fries drenched in ketchup, forget about it. Fruit punch you say, hah couldn't dirink that either let alone bloody marys. Oh, and we use formaldehyde back then as a sterilant for these thing. Can never forget the smell of formaldehyde to this day.

Grocery Nightshifts....
1am to 8am when I hit fulltime. Being a large corperation it was always go go go. You had to be fast and not whine otherwise they would make you quit. Being union has its ups and downs lol. However they usually had maybe 5 guys on in a night with lots of stuff needing to be done.

13 grocery asiles in the store, an average night would consist of 3000 peices for grocery. 16 or so pallets would come off the truck. If the truck showed up on time you were good, on time was 11pm. Most of the time trucks would show up right when you got there, which means the spotter (guy who took the pallets from the wearhouse and tried to unload all the pieces in the aisles closest to where they belonged} didn't have much time to do much of anything, usually only had time for one pallet to spot before he went home.

I was in charge of 2.5 aisles. Paper products (Tp, PaperTowel and Tissue paper}, cleaning products, and wraps (foil and plastic}. When you are in a rush and drop a box of liquid bleach, which contained 6 4liter bottles, it was alllll bad.

There were a lot of good times in that store however. The greatest moments were the 2inches thick of juice in the juice aisle due to having to relighn everything to new spaces, puffed wheat fights between the supervisors, and my favorite massive japanese mayonaisse attacking my one supervisor. He stepped on it very hard and it squirted up his pant leg and all over him.
