    I once had to deliver project revisions to an Army Colonel, while he was getting a suit fitted at Burberry's. It was plain silly (and frankly a little humiliating), since it wasn't urgent or anything. But the guy was obviously thrilled, having a twenty-something girl in a mini-skirt bring stuff to him in that setting. In retrospect, I'm glad to have contributed to his little moment in the sun.

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    My very first job was being the Easter Bunny at a mall when I was 15.

    In college, I was in one of those "Let go' my GEO" contests to see who would be the last man standing while holding onto a Geo. I made it through the first night, froze my butt off, probably gave myself uro-myce-tisis poisoning (Seinfeld reference) and dropped out the next day at about 11am due to delirium. However I didn't end up with the car in the end, but it was some crazy 'shit' that I'll never do again. Does this count?

    Washed cars, in the pouring rain.

    Watched a guy make copies at 2 AM. And someone else was being paid to watch me watch the guy make copies to make sure I didn't fall asleep.

    ridiculous s**t I have done for money ?

    I do it everyday from monday to friday.

    I wake up early, come to this place and have to stay here at least 8 hours doing all kinds of life-empty senseless stuff...

    Buy they pay me a hell of a lot of money for that.

    --- go figure

    One of my first nights on shift as a firefighter, I spent 2 hours in -35c (-31f) weather looking for a hobo's severed arm.

    You try maintaining a "professional distance" from mouth-wateringly gorgeous girls who are flirting with you while you teach them mind-numbingly boring grammar patterns that never amount to a coherent much less stimulating conversation, all for a paltry salary, negligible job satisfaction, and zero respect, and try telling me that's a sweet job.

    In a situation like that, "professional distance" and job satisfaction don't go together.

    It's one or the other.

    I would've dropped the "professional distance" and went straight for job satisfaction. Over, and over again. [​IMG]

    mind-numbing boring grammar ? English ? Yes you are right! English is the poorest language in the grammar department...

    try to learn or teach a Slavic language... I learned Slovak.... 7 gramatical cases, declension of adverbs, nouns and adjectives by gender ( 3 of them), number and gramatical mode.... Now that is a grammar ...

    And now that I am going out with a Polish girl, this girl-related language interest of mine will make me learn Polish...
