Being a shepherd shear seems like hard work. (Eh, spungo?)

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I tried to qualify as a maths teacher, but something just didn't add up.

Being a horse trainer wasn't too bad, except it was always reining.

Being a well-driller paid really well, but talk about boring...

I was considering being a porn star, but then it turned out that there was actually a large work load.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Don't know if any/all of these had been used yet...

I used to work in a coffee factory, started on the ground floor. It was really a grind. There was a man named Max there, I knew Max well. I even went to his Maxwell's House. Then the company folgered, so I moved on.

I got a job at the bakery, but I was only in it for the dough. Boss was Danish, and the job had a lot of holes in it.

So, I finally saved enough money for a Rolls, rolls down one side of the hill can't get up the other.

Worked for a farmer for a time after that, was only in it for the chicks. The boss was hog, but his wife was a Babe.

Then, I went into constuction, trying to get a better foundation in my life. I started building up in the world. There were a lot of frogs on the site though, every where you went you'd hear "Rivit rivit."

Y'know, a lot of 'frogs' on site is actually true if you mean 'frogs' as a derogatory term towards Quebecers, as there's many of them working on the roads & buildlings in Ontario in construction crews. [Wink]

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming:

I wanted to be a race car driver, but it turned out I had too much gas.

Being a conductor on the train had some good points. It just wasn't my ticket.

I was a genealogist for a while, that was relatively boring.
