Worst Jobs Ever

My old job reminds me most of "roman gold miner"

Unfortunately, my favorite hoped-for job "hooters daily uniform fitter" (which in my vision involves a garden hose with about 10psi of cold water) has never been made available....

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Re: Worst Jobs Ever

How often have you checked? I doubt those positions make it to the classified ads. Some jobs just don't need recruitment.

Reminds me of a scene from the first movie Woody Allen wrote (but he didn't direct it nor star in it but he had a part) called "What's New Pussycat".

Did you find a job?

Yeah, I got something at the striptease. I help the girls dress and undress.

Nice job.

Twenty francs a week.

Not very much.

It's all I can afford.
