What is the most horrible job you ever had? mine was cleaning the lockeroom by a soccer field. Hard, hard work for so little money. Gras, mud, and all sort of other filth and junk...

I'd have to say working for vector marketing aka cutco. I had to go to people's houses and sell them $50 knives. I sold nearly $800 worth, but I quit after a few weeks. I felt like scum. Luckily I work for myself now. I work at home making money online, well I wouldn't quite call it work. Check out my blog at webmoneyblog.com to see how I do it.

My worse job ever was probably working as a dishwasher in a restuarant for the summer. It was hot and damp and I was miserable the whole time. At least when I was a waitress (another job I'm not fond of), I got to get out of the kitchen for a bit.

I've worked three different jobs flipping burgers (McDonalds, Wendy's, and Burger King) and they all were pretty horrible. But that's what you gotta do when you're young.

To be the mother and the breadwinner of the family doing all the dirty jobs because of lack of finances is the most horrible responsibility wherein I am still in and it's very difficult to get out from. The mother without any helper does all the cleaning of the dirtiest whatever in the house. Had you thought of taking care of a baby who could not go to the CR alone? And how many years until he could do things by himself? The mother does the most horrible job I know.

One was washing dishes in an old folks' home. It freaked me out, because they called it "first feeding," and "second feeding" when they "herded" these old people in when it was time for them to eat. The other job was cleaning hotel rooms. Very hard work, some of those people left the rooms in disgusting conditions.

The most horrible job I ever had was the summer I worked detasseling corn. I came home every night dripping with sweat, covered with bug bites and a rash, and muddy like you wouldn't believe. I swore I would never, ever do that again no matter what.
