Thread Name: Best /Worst Job List
Subject: RE: Best /Worst Job List
Silversmithing and Singing for me aren't jobs, but I do manage them that way. They are the joy of living and the music in my day. A job is different.

Best job I ever had was building fishing boats and yachts. I meet some of the best and a few of the worst people it has been my task to know. But the character of the crews I built for was never in question. Not always the case with some of the owners. I think i may have a few big boats left in me now, if Pete Culler could build them after 50, so can I.

Worst job was working as a factory deck ape for Carrier Corp. in Syracuse NY. The place I ever found that was like two warring camps held in check by a tenuous contract that both parties would scuttle at the least provocation. One of my five best friends still works there and says its all changed. Luckily I don't have to go back and see.
