Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen Header Courtesy of Goofy Girl
Thirteen Jobs I Wouldn't Want to Have (If you hold any of the below jobs, I don't mean this offensively to you, they're just jobs that don't really fit me!)

1. The person who rolls up and tapes a pair of underwear to fit nicely in the package (I think this job would be really dull)
2. The person who walks behind horses and other animals in a parade (This job would be gross to me)
3. The person who harvests this coffee (I wouldn't want to be the person drinking it either)
4. The person who has to take out the trash at McDonalds (or any place for that matter)
5. The person who cleans the restrooms at a convenient store - if there is such a person, which is kind of doubtful. (those are by FAR some of the nastiest bathrooms I've seen. I don't like to use them. I definitely wouldn't want to clean them.)
6. The person that lay asphalt on the roads. (This has to be a very hot job. Especially with the kind of heat we've been having this summer.)
7. The person who is the automated voice for major companies. (I hate talking to a machine when I have a problem with something. I'd totally hate to be the voice that everyone hated to hear!)
8. The person that had to refold all the t-shirts at Old Navy (People tear through those things constantly. If folding the shirts was my job, I'd stand by the shirt rack with a fly-swatter to slap hands away!)
9. The person who has to sit at the top of the big hill on the roller coaster to make sure that no one stands up. (Talk about a hot boring job. I mean, I love to ride roller coasters. It'd be torture to sit there all day not riding!)
10. The person that had to proof read text books for college level math (I'm pretty good at math, but talk about a boring job.)
11. The person behind the counter at the gas station (I've heard quite a few people cuss the gas station workers for the prices of gas. Yeah, like they make oil prices so high.)
12. The person who has to pick up the trash after a concert or sporting event. Americans really are littering folk. It's just common courtesy to throw your trash away people!
13. The person who makes those tickets that are on jeans (Oh, wait a minute that IS my job!

Oh Heather, you are cracking me up! Especially that #13.

But I am the latter part of 3. I, for one, love the stuff. (So I decided NOT to check out that link, okay?)

6. The person that lay asphalt on the roads. (This has to be a very hot job. Especially with the kind of heat we've been having this summer.)

My twin brothers (19 years old) are raking the gravel that goes below the asphalt all summer. They hate it in the heat...good money though.

I used to fold shirts in a children's clothing stores (good thing it was just for a year!)...

Dawn said...

I will fold the shirts after I look at them. I just feel so sorry seeing the people working there folding them back.

Those are some creative jobs you listed, and not ones i would want either. I enjoyed visiting your site. I love the little side banner you have: as for me and my blog, we sill serve the lord..Awesome

Ugh, I used to be a Manager of a cleaning company and we'd just won the contract for the cleaning of a newly refurbished nightclub. This has to be one of the worst jobs I've ever seen. Used condoms, needles, sanitary wear.. you name it, I saw it. It was disgusting and revolting. We ended the contract soon afterwards. There was no way I was going to allow my staff to clean up such filth.

But yeah uhmm, I guess someone has to do it..

HAHA! Cute list! You know we just rip those tags out anyway!!! ;D
Love your list!!

Dee said...

LOL!! That is great....I agree with not wanting most of those jobs, however, I am thankful there are people who are willing (in most situations - but the convenience store restrooms, I am with you... no one does it!) to do these jobs!!

Amy said...

twiga92 said...

Yeah, those jobs standing in the heat have got to be hard! And cleaning? Ewww!

Peggy said...

...my 2 cents said...

Great list!! I don't think I would want those jobs either!!

Emily said...

Tracie said...

Great list!! I am the random customer with OCD who stands there and straightens shirts out at Old Navy-yep that wierd girl is me....but if I ever actually do that for a living, I am so stealing your fly swatter idea!!

Kimba said...

Your list cracked me up! Especcially since I've been the person back on college folding shirts, working at the gas station (which includes cleaning the bathroom!), and I've been that automated voice of a major corporation. (Ironically it was in England...they wanted an American voice for their international customers!)
But none of them were really bad jobs to be honest.
