Snapshots from Green Victoria

Happy Easter, everyone!

Just had to share the following post that my oldest LJ friend (who one crucial exception, lol) desi_derata made made me smile...

I feel physically sick! Just watched Jobs from Hell on ITV2 and the final job was that of a guy who had to artificially inseminate tukeys for a living!!

He literally had to arouse the males (by *tickling* apparently) and suck through a tube to get the semen *splutter* His parting comment was that sometimes the tube gets full and you end up with a mouthful but it's not too bad; just a little salty!! *bleeuurrghhhh*

Even worse was that he made a kind of clucky noise and all the turkeys responded to him excitedly and he gleefully told the viewer that they all have a great time and that he has excellent job satisfaction!!


Did anyone else see this??

I'm trying to think of my job from hell. I think it was my time at Tarnell. The job wasn't bad--a financial reporter, but the brothers who owned the company were complete assholes. We used to call it "Tarhell." One time the oldest brother crumpled up a piece of paper and threw it at my friend Karen, and said, "Oh, I'm sorry, I must have mistaken you for the trash!" I was happy to leave that place.

I got them back, though--I left for an acting gig in Edinburgh and gave them one days notice. It was nice seeing my boss's face that day. :)

What was your job from hell?
