My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned, I couldn't concentrate.

Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it. Mainly because it was a so-so job.

Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.

I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn't cut it.

Then I tried to be a chef--figured it would add a little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.

Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.

My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patients.

Next was a job in a shoe factory; I tried but I just didn't fit in.

I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

Thought about becoming a witch, so I tried that for a spell.

I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.

I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn't up to it.

So then I got a job in a gym, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking.

After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was no future in it.

My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

(I stole this from another board I vist sometimes [Big Grin] )

I used to work in the wheel shop of a car repair place, but left as the work was too tiring. So then I took a job in construction making foundations, but found it too boring.

As a reaction to rubbish jobs, I became a chemist.

I worked for a grocery store once, but after I took stock of my position they made me check out.

I sold insurance until I learned that it went against my own personal policies.

Bookkeeping seemed like a good occupation but it turned out there was no accounting for it.

I tried farming and loved driving a tractor until I learned there were others out standing in the field.

We were going to start a boat-building company but couldn't find anyone to float us a loan.

*Next*

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

That sounds like a minor problem alright.

I was a bricklayer until I found out there was mortar life than that.

I quit as an elevator (English=lift) operator - too many ups and downs. (Not to mention all the jerks in between.)

Landscaping would have been okay, if people could have left me a lawn.

I worked for the canadian liberal party as an intern, hoping to get a full-time position, but no one would sponsor me.

I once worked on Wall Street, but I couldn't take all the Bull.

I used to be in construction, but I hit the glass ceiling.

I used to be a prostitute at a truck stop, but then I just got effing tired of it.

Edit: Gosh. The tame version of it just isn't as funny.

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

I used to be a programmer, but that job fell to bits. So then I thought I might be a house painter, but all I succeeded in doing was painting myself into a corner.

I quit my job as the county coroner 'cause it was a dead end job.
