Wow, talk about tripping through your memories.
The best and the worst career job are both in the same line of work: accountant.
What made it the worst was the ###hole I worked for. I reported him to his peer committee for sexual misconduct and I was fired two weeks later for incompetence. Coincidence? Gee, musta been.
(I worked as a dishwasher for the summer when I was twelve. That was hot, dirty, work that never seems to have a accomplishing end to it. Yuck.)
What makes this current one so great are the colleagues, coworkers, and my own staff who are like family.
I spent one summer building playgrounds; that was a blast.
...and then there was the summer that I didn't work at all. I spent that summer learning how to walk and talk all over again after surviving a horrible car accident. I think I would have taken just about any crappy job as a trade that year.
Still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
