Mine is a Petrol pump attendant,Quarry rd service station Heswall in 1985 its gone now,Duties included fuel tyres oil&water providing there wasn't a Que and when you did get 5 mins to make a coffee someone would always call in for the usual full service`some where Polite and some expected it as part of the service we provided

The lads and me sometimes forgot to pop the spare wheel back in boot which ended up getting rolled over the back wall into the Quarry,In the short time I was there I had to dress up like Father Christmas`we all had too so wasn't so bad`there was some piss taking going ongrin Witness to an armed robbery and loads a bollockings however I did meet Paul McCartney his brother Mike McGee and a few footy players Previously before leaving school although not at the same time managed two paper rounds two milk rounds also worked part time in a Butchers shop all in a couple of years` are starting to see a pattern? I get board easily get fed up and start making mistakes`Variety is the spice of life ... and still is today wink smile blush

My worst job is easily sales assistant in the Birkenhead Sports Direct, for obvious reasons! My second day there and first time using a till, they left me on my own at the tills with a massive queue and people having a go at me to call other assistants over to help, which I did! You could only contact them with walkie talkies and none of them worked, everyone hung round the shop so you had to shout and wave your arms like an idiot to get their attention for some help.

One guy had a go at me cos I didn't know exactly where the swimming stuff was on my first day there, even though I did point him to the right area. One guy came over with a pair of flip flops with no barcode and no one else was on the tills or near me so I couldn't look for it myself and couldn't ask someone else to do it for me. I shouted and waved and even tried the walkie talkie and while we were waiting some other guy pushed in front of flip flop guy, ripped open a pack of socks and tried them on right there at the till saying if he didn't like them he wouldn't be buying them! Finally someone came over and took care of flip flop guy, then I accidentally scanned the guys socks twice cos one of the multi pack was now a single pack so he had a go at me. No one said thanks, no one ever smiled, one gross guy called me babe, some kid was kicking the footballs around the shop asking me what team I support, someone shouted at me because I almost went for a Manchester instead of a Liverpool water bottle thing, okay not good but I'm a girl and I just know it's red tease

We had to phone them on a Sunday night to find out our shifts for the next week if we weren't in on the Sunday to look on the board thing. I spent 5 credit trying to phone them because they wouldn't answer their phone and would tell you off if you text them instead. On the board one day it said my shift was 9 till 1 or whatever, got there at 8.45 for them to tell me they'd changed my shift for 1pm-6 without telling me :'( I'd been up since half 6 to get ready and everything cos I was in Liverpool at the time and had to go spend the day at Mum's till my shift.

Bahhh that turned into a massive rant raftl But yeah, definitely my worst job! Only stayed there just over a month cos they said they'd fire me when I couldn't come in, lost my bank card in London and had no money to get to Birkenhead, and they wouldn't answer their phones so I couldn't tell them! They sent me a letter saying I can come back or be fired so I just said I'd rather not come back raftl Such a quitter, haha.

I would have to say mine was working on the tills in Asda over Christmas and New year (2001), back then it was all about how quickly you could get the shopping through the till, mine was always in the red zone (I blame slow packing customers and last minute "oh I forgot the cheese, I'll just pop back for it now"). It was cold and (almost) minimum wage, they expected me to start working on my 18th Birthday, just assuming I hadn't already made plans. In order to get the job I had to do all sorts of questionnaires, interviews and team building activities - waste of time, I wasn't even there 2 months!!!

I know yeah! I had an interview at La Senza and the interviewer was shocked when I told her some of the things tease Apparently they have a lot of people leaving all the time though, they're always having recruitment days at the birkenhead one!

All my jobs have been spot on apart from a milk round when I was 15, having to get up at 5am every morning and then going to school tierd me and I can still remember the disgusting smell of the milk wagon, it was vile.
Remembering the orders was such a daunting task as people had "special instructions" on how and where to place the dairy products.
But, plod on I did for about 6 months until I finally had enough and packed it in.
Milkmen, I salute you, I don't think people appreciate just how hard you all work happy
