I went late to university. At some point during those years, there was a local pimp who decided to start 'grooming' me to work for him (I didn't look my age - at that point I looked much younger). It was sorta' fun to thwart him.

In retrospect, I wish I'd simply reported him to the police. Except back then even the police didn't take it seriously enough.

NYC street cleaner assigned to Lower Manhattan after occupy Wall Street finished occupying Wall Street. That would be second worst. The worst would be teaching k-12. The kids wouldn't do me in, it would be having to put up with the crazy school administrators.

I had this one job, working in IT-Support for the Florida Health Department in one of their smaller cities. The "manager" was this ego-maniac who was named after an American motorcycle company, and he thought he was th' king's $h!t. He literally ruled "his" organization with an "iron hand", except for 1 or 2 women he especially liked. The rest of us (women and men) got a regular chastising for even the smallest-little-things.

I got called on the carpet, as the lowest-ranking employee in the group, so many times, that all I could do was be humble about it because I needed the job so very badly.

That was the worst job I would've or could've ever had. Even the outdoor, Gardening & Construction Materials, customer service job at th' Depot was no match for that IT guy!
