    Question Who's got the worst job??

    So interning for the US Marshals hasnt been what I expected so far...but it's sopposed to pick up next week. But until then I need some amusement while I do data entry all day. This is definitely not the worse job, but so far its my most boring. Let me know yours...Long Stories are much apreciated I've got to burn 5 more hours today and 32 more this week.

    I roll mats.
    Yes, floor mats. I work at Cintas ("THE UNIFORM PEOPLE")
    I take the mat out of the bin, place it in a rolling machine, press the pedal, collect the rolled mat, and put it in the correct size and color bin. Rinse and Repeat!

    My boss is a dickwad. and so is his boss. The Building manager is some ex-marine guy with a balding flattop, when we start to get behind, which really shouldn't happen, because they should know there is a limited amount we can roll, so either add more people or less mats. Anyways he come storming into the warehouse and shouts "I DON'T LIKE GETTING BEHIND, LETS ROLL LADIES!!!!"
    I now refer to him as sargeant *******.

    He has only been our boss for 2 weeks, before him we had a nice guy named Chris, Chris had homosexual tendencies, he would smile and pat your hand, or come up behind you and give you a back rub, the first time he tried the rub on me, I just about broke half his fingers when I lifted his hand off my shoulder, I think he was a bit suprised at my reflexes. He also promised me, 1 week before he was to be transferred, I would get to do other things than roll mats very soon, and that my hours where 1:30 to 9:30. The first week with the new bosses, and my hours are 2:30 till 11, which means I can't leave unless we are completly done with mats, which means like sometimes midnight or later. I also have done nothing but roll mats, and am afraid to ask my boss for something else, since I'm the youngest there, and lowest on the chain of command.

    Also, the rare occasions on which we have no mats to roll, I unload trucks, which means taking giant bags full of Tea towels (actually resteraunt clean-up towels which have maggots and worms in them) and putting them in bins, along with greasy shop towels, dirty mats, shirts that smell like B.O. and the long rolls of cloth that go in those old fashioned hand driers.

    When I put my mats into the seperate rolled bins, I then have to take the bins acrost the warehouse when they are full. The are old and the wheels suck. Imagine pushing 400-500lbs of mats in a bin which you can't see over, with wheels that don't turn acrost a floor with piles of bags of tea towels.

    The warehouse gets to be about 100degrees very easily, and the shirts and long pants they make us wear whick away moisture, so you never get to be sweaty and cool off, you are stuck in a thick pair of clothes in 100 degree weather with atleast 150% humidity!

    Oh, I forgot to mention the smell, there isn't words for it, its horrendous, moldy hotdog comes to mind.

    Well, gotta go to work!! have a nice day! lets see you top this one
    Clarion 200watt head unit w/ Aux in.
    Kicker 800watt 4 channel amp

    And you are still working there??

    I hope you get paid somewhat decently, atleast 8 bucks an hour. Man, I'd grab a job at McDonalds or T-Bell before that one. Cinnci doesnt have anything else??

    My work aint that bad, but it will kill some time to read it anyways


    I drive a forklifter, but without the forks.. intstead i got a big thingie to lift the giant rolls of paper i load the trucks with.

    imagine a roll of toilet paper, but with usual paper (not soft) and multiply with 10000 the heaviest is about 1325kgs.

    one other neat thing is that every lifter has its own pc, a 486 running nt4. everytime there is a truck to be loaded, i bring up the list on the pc, and then check every roll i load, and when i'm done, i send it over to the office and they print out the reciept

    it has a disc smaller than a cd on my left side to use instead of the steering wheel, but not that hi-res; if you spin it to quick, it wont turn at all! not a nice feature when you are about to hit something and you want to turn away...

    it can lift, tilt, rotate the rolls and it has a "extender" so that i can load on the other side of the truck without having to push the rolls, looking sideways. the last week i did the drive-up and with me was a bunch of others. two of them crashed a pallet of a4 sheets the first day

    one of the co-workers gently knocked on one of thems window and said: that was $400 you just spoiled, and they got yelled at by the boss, lucky me my 1st half of the week has been without accidents

    At present I'm having to test vibrators, most excitting thing I've had to do in weeks. Turn them on, wait 20 min, turn them of, and see if they'll restart.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?
    www.mp3mini.co.uk (Does what it says on the URL) www.openclassic.co.uk (The new car, with zero rust!) www.rob-web.co.uk (My other site)
    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    I'm sure it is. *wink* *wink*

    My job isn't so bad. I'm own a software company that's finally getting off the ground. It's hard to stay focused. I gotta lay off the Counterstrike and do more work!
