What's the WORST job you ever had?
That was our question tonight.
There were some interesting answers: haying, milking cows at 4:00 a.m., washing dishes.
There was a Catholic sister I knew who travelled to another city incognito to experience life as a homeless person.
A "gospel" mission had her washing dishes before letting her sleep on the greasy kitchen floor.
Most of the folks we were talking with tonight agreed that the day labor opportunities weren't too great. They treat you mean, and charge you for everything; getting to the job site, cashing your check for you at the end of the day. They take half the money that the employer pays out, right off the top. You work all day, and get to go home to your tent to rest up.
What a world.
So, what was YOUR worst job?
