    Seeing as I'm not a rock star... yet. I got a job. I work for Wally Mart. My specific job is to push carts... you heard me right, push carts. You know those little areas where you are SUPPOSE TO PUT YOUR CARTS? It's my job to put those carts where they belong and to pick up the strays :spit: Other than that I listen to my walkie talkie in case anyone needs help carrying things?

    Mind bogglingly simple right? Yep, but when you really start piling on the carts and do it for 8 hour shifts, it sucks. But there is an upside to it, some people pay to get exersize this intense... I'm getting paid. It feels like I'm at football camp or something... except I don't catch stuff :meh:

    Overall, not a bad job. I'm gonna be totally ripped in a few months. :D

    Matt Till: Now with new ultra ripped.
    I'm becoming a florist......

    But that sounds like a cool job. Well, better than a fast food place that makes you make hamburgers in 8 seconds and uses the left over meat for chili.
  4. Yeah, but Kief and the Killers would be a great name for a Rock band!!:D

    Congrats on the new job. Just stay outta the way of us paying customers that need to use the parking lot.:D;)

    Rock on

    Porn, Rock, they're all four letter words.

    Matt, do you have to jump in front of rolling carts before they can dent a car?:p
  14. I work in a bakery. I drop on my knees everyday and thank God for not having to do jobs like these.

    I think you need to check out Episode 1 - Season 2 of the Trailer Park Boys where Ricky gets a job retreiving carts at the mall and where we discover Bubbles has a grey-market cart stealing and repair business on the side. Funny stuff - the walkie-talkie figures prominently in the script....

  16. Job!? I do the clever thing of selling my posession's when i need money it work's most of the time apart from my dad's car and golf club's :meh:
  17. i need a job like that

    better than fast food :mad:
  18. Better than my previous Job at Petsmart. IN THE FISH DEPARTMENT!!

    here is a sample conversation between me and someone needing some feeder fish.

    Me-"Hi can I help you with anything?"
    Customer-"Yes can I get 200 feeder fish"
    Me-"alright what size sir?"
    Customer- "Hmm lets see, I want 56 Small ones, 62 medium ones and the rest in Large size."
    Start to fish out the small sized ones and get to the mediums...
    Customer-"ok now I want this medium, no not that one, put it back I want that one, now that one, that one, and that one, NO NO NO NOT THAT ONE, THAT ONE IN THE CORNER!!"
    and this goes on for the entire 62 medium feeder fish. Then I get the rest of the Large fish and bag them all.
    Me-"There you are sir, your 200 feeders"
    Customer-"Hey wait a second. I see a dead one, no two, I want a new set now, wheres Bill, he never messes up like this"
    Me- "umm sir they arent dead, they are just in shock from being transported.
    Customer- "They look pretty dead to me, I come in here every week, I know what im talking about."
    Me-"Yes sir"
    I then have to rip open the bag, let all the large fish out and rebag them again.
    Customer-" Oh crap I forgot my money in the car Ill be right back"
    So I put the fish on the cart and wait for about two hours, He never came back.

    How about that for a crappy job. The sad thing was it happened all the time. Freaking idiots
