    The worst job was being a supervisor of an English language school and backstabbed by my colleague, betrayed by my manager and got fired without justice

    The best job was as a sales assistant is a computer shop which I had been working for more than 10 years until I was married and had children

      I hate jobs where the fellow employees are the ones that get you ...I have had those type of jobs too but only on occasion...

    This is cool to think about. I have had so many jobs it is impossible to remember them all. I immediately went to the physically hardest. But the fond memories were there. Well drilling at 8,000 feet in a high wind blizzard. Temperature in the shack minus 15. Pick axing through permafrost to lay leach lines with out disturbing the land much like a backhoe would.Maybe those two were the best.
    But without a doubt coaching and teaching and preaching to young ones. That is still the best I think.

    Probably being lowered in to a septic tank after pumping it out, and cleaning the walls so a new sealant could be coated on.I am not sure if it was my claustrophobia or just thinking about it was worse.  Maybe shoveling out horse, pig and cattle stalls at a county fair. Not so much the caca but it was just backbreaking and blister causing; Plus no matter how well you did it you just had to wait 12 hours to do it again.

    I reckon in all cases I needed the money. So maybe my cry baby self should just have been happy to have a job.

      For sure Marc it is a strange thing to do. It is funny that when I have coached, they call me coach, when I cleaned up excrement they just called me "boy".
