    that you hated. I had a job where I went around and had to get people to make Republican the person's party affiliation. It didn't go well as I didn't believe in their stances and I was a Democrat at the time. :(

    So what are some jobs that you've had that you hated?

    I've only had 2 jobs, I was a football referee (soccer) and a door-to-door salesman. Both sucked ass and I quit within a month

    Did you have to actually count 1 by 1 the stock in the whole store? I’ve done that for clothing departments. It was painful.

    When I took inventory at a fast food store, I just had to count the boxes. I got in trouble once because some boxes had more than what was supposed to be in there and others had less. :(

    Lol why would you assume that? No because it was tedious and the companies leadership sucked and didn't know what they wanted people to be doing.

    It was a joke. :)

    Inventory was fun because it was nice change-up to the usual cooking and taking customer orders, lol. :)

    I think the worst job I ever had was when I used to be a health care aide at a long term care facility years ago. You have no idea the things I've seen and smelled. The work environment was much worse though. It was unbelievably toxic in that place, constant drama, and the management was totally irresponsible and neglectful.

    I was put on the palliative care unit for a while and have also been on the dementia one. There's some things I don't think I'm ever going to forget.

    I worked in a bakery. Stocking bread.
    It was delightfully mind numbing.
    But the manager, this guy just worshiped bread, he probably fucking dreamt bread. One day I came back from days off, first thing in the morning I'm unloading pallets of bread. Here's my manager just flipping shit, comes yelling at me that the new bread goes behind the old bread.
    I'm like "duh" and tried to tell him that I just had two days off and it wasn't me.
    But he was more interested in yelling at me to fix it, so I told him to do it yourself and walked out.

    @867k I used to work in a bakery too, but instead of a breadophile my boss was just a sexist piece of trash :)
    I liked it though, especially making all the pretty cakes.

    Remember when Kramer accidentally dropped his chewing gum into the bread dough and it got mixed in, and then he got fired for that, lol?
