    lets see........ I sold hot dogs in front of the washington monument for a whole week. worked out in kwajalein, marshall island and watche MX and Minuteman missles come in and shoot their warheads off, (dummy warheads, not live nukes) worked in antarctica wiring up the fire detection system for the base down there91 and 92-93. worked in a hospital doing electrical work, road the elevator with a couple of stiffs, so I know how the patients find their way to the morgue. Build a fence to hold back some elephants at my casino I use to work at for the easter candy hand out for the workers kids.

    that just about covers it for me, oops forgot one, radio DJ for the radio station in antarctica, that was fun, programed my show and did it all.

    i did some social work in the summer of 2000. I went to a drug dealer's house & met his wife. He'd just been caught and his wife couldn't speak English, so we had to go and explain the legal procedure to her. Her daughter helped us with translation.It was a sad situation as she had no idea what her husband had been up to.

    This will surprise no one, I'm sure, but I, too, was a stripper. :monkeybut

    Kidding, of course.

    My most interesting job also happens to be my dullest, and I can't touch some of the jobs here.

    After college, I painted outdoor garages in Montreal, Canada. I'm sure plenty of people in the world have had more miserable jobs, but you don't know true misery until you've stood in an outdoor parking garage for fourteen hours, moving 30-50 lb. buckets of whitewash, and the weather's -10F.

    I hated the degradation of it and the fact that I simply had to shut my mind down to get it done. What I liked? Unlike office jobs I had, there was absolutely no pressure. I mean, you go to a blank spot on the wall, paint it, and move on. At the end of the day, you went home and ate dinner and watched TV.

    I did it because I believe that adversity builds character. And if I could do that, then I certainly could do anything for the short term, if money became a problem.

    P.S. When I was done, that was the best-looking outdoor garage in Montreal, Canada.

    I'm jealous of Paulie working in the Wildlife Refuge.
    My jobs sucked compared to most of the interesting jobs mentioned here. None of mine were interesting, but I made the most of it.

    Right out of high school, I worked in an Adult Probation Office, and I got to read the files on all the pervs in town. I worked as a switchboard operator, and then in the cosmetics department of Target. Working at Target was tons of fun. Since I went to lunch with some of the managers, I got to take 2 to 3 hour lunches, and an unlimited amount of breaks. That was the only job where I liked my managers.
