my favorite was working in a clock factory,,very easy,,just stood around and made faces all day,,,,,,,, Razz

years later I got a job in house cleaning at a holiday inn,,i was fired because my chin wasn,t big enough to help fold bed sheets,, Rolling Eyes

I used to stutter, and got a job selling bibles.
I was a success.
My boss asked me how I did it.
I said I knock on the the door, tell them I'm selling bibles, and say

"Da da da da da da you wan wan wan a b b b b buy one or do you wan wan want me t t t t t r r r r r read it t t t t to you".

I used to work in a ladies underwear factory as a diesel fitter.
As the panties came off the assembly line, I'd pick up each pair and say "Dese'll fit her"

I worked in "Ruin Maintenance" at the Coliseum in Rome. The boss let us have an hour coffee break when we got to work in the morning and then he'd check his clipboard and tell us, "I've decided to leave everything just like it is."

Years ago I worked in a pickle factory. I was fired for
getting my hand caught in the pickle slicer.
She also got fired.

I worked part time for our local undertakers, but it was a dying trade.
