I was recently reminded of the worst job I ever had.
The worst job I ever had, to work my way through college was…
I had the glorious job of manufacturing synthetic cow manure.
It is a real glamour detail.
I never understood why. There were plenty of cattle at the college they could simply take samples from, but Nooooooo, they had to do it in the lab. That is, I had to do it in the lab.
Even the professors would not enter the large lab I worked in while I was doing this for their precious food science research.
Oh, but that’s not all. Then I had to dry it, weigh it, compare it to previous samples, and repeat the whole procedure. Hey it was only 16 hours a week.
Suffice it to say that I did not go into Food Science.
I had to wear 2 sets of rubber gloves, 2 masks, full lab gear, and several layers, in the summer too, just to keep the stench off. Of course, I showered immediately after, or my girl, now my wife, wouldn’t even talk to me. haha, no one would.
THAT was the worst job I ever had in college.
How about you?
