    Mine was at a place called Maryland Cork when I was 17. It was dirty and dangerous work that involved lifting and unloading bales of cork that weighed between 75 and 225lbs..
    It was so bad, we’d often take bets on new hires returning after lunch. Most didn’t come back.
    I stuck it out for 8 months.

    You?

    I worked for the govt for 3 months. Hated every last second of it. Well, I guess playing cards during lunch wasn’t too bad, but the rest was awful. Found a new job quickly, once I realized how much I hated it.

    I often wonder how our security guards deal with the boredom. Standing around waiting for something to happen can’t be easy.

    I currently have the best of two positions.
    Not only can I stay busy fixing stuff, I help security with combative people. :)

    When I was 18 I was a laborer for a plumbing company. I got paid 8 dollars an hour to bust my ass in the summer heat of Florida for 10-12 hours at a time. I dug a lot of holes and carried a lot of heavy shit.
