I just feel like ranting right now.

I remember one time I was at work (I work at Burger King) and I had a fever right after my break. However I worked the rest of my shift since they needed me. Sick in bed next two days.

Couple weeks later, someone brags about how they once worked a shift with a headache and how greatful everyone should be. I so....wanted...to...slap them. It's not something to brag about and compare to others.

So anyone else? I've got more coming.

Working an entire 8 Hour shift in a tin plated building once used to build WWII P51-D Mustang fighter planes in 15degree weather with 35mph winds (working right where the wind likes to blow in too) with no heat source but welding or running a torch anywhere till the next day.

Being sick at work does not compair to the misery of low temperatures and high winds. Until yall experience something similar you do not know the meaning of the phrase "bitter cold."

Ouch...The closest I get to that is working drive thru when it's puring buckets of rain outside and the wind is at my face X.x

I used to work for a company that does "Automotive Interior Repair." This meant that I got to go out to every used car lot in the area and fix cigarette burnholes in upholstery and tears and scratches in doors and dashes and whatnot. Usually right on the lot.

Sometimes I'd get to bring the cars into the service shop of the dealership, but most of the time I worked on the lot. A lot of the managers really didn't want me to start the cars either(don't ask me why). I learned a lot about Michigan weather and how when you are in an expansive parking lot with very little wind-break it can get cold. Don't get me started about doing the job on car-rental lots near the airport. Bitter cold is indeed a concept I am familiar with.

I'm so happy to work indoors now.

You think YOU have it hard. You never worked in redneck ville. When I was 15 I helped restore mobile homes for $5 an hour. Due to the intense heat during mid summer I was only allowed (or able) to work 3 hours.

We're talking in full breather, gloves, long sleeves, in the hot Mississippi sun, tearing out walls, burnt insulation, (yeah we did a lot of restoration after fire damage).

Thank God that place went out of business, and my parents started an antique store I could work at. Consider that moving furniture (including pianos) was considered a step up from the old job.

Get this - so I manage to land myself a job as a Functionality Tester (i.e. Game Tester) for Sega. Sounds awesome, right? Every time I tell people about it, they're like, "OMG that must be every guy's DREAM JOB!" etc etc...

So, yeah, the pay was terrible and the three shifts to choose from each had inconvenient hours - you were either up at 4am to head out to the middle of nowhere (where the offices are based) or getting home at like midnight (which, for me, sucked, as I never got to see the friends I was living with and missed out on most things going on after 9 to 5 jobs finished). You were also encouraged to work overtime on weekends, and threatened with poor reviews if you didn't participate. So, when the overnight shift opened up temporarily, I took the opportunity as it paid SLIGHTLY more than the other two shifts and could just about help me keep a roof over my head for a while. Also, as you were working overnight, you didn't have to come in for overtime on weekends.

So, I was working 10pm - 7am, and I don't drive so I'd take the morning train home to sleep during the daytime. After a few months of doing this, everyone's skin practically goes grey, eyes are all red, eating patterns are messed up and I'm getting ill a lot. But it's okay, because the shift is only temporary and we'll be heading back into normal hours soon enough...

Next thing, we notice that they've employed people behind us to work on the afternoon shift in our place... where does that leave us, you ask? Well, they let us know that they've lost some projects they thought they'd landed, so we're all up for performance reviews. Some of us get fired then and there, the rest get put on hold for about six months... or at least, that's what they're told. They actually get letters of dismissal in the post. Everyone gets axed.
