    I believe I have the most boring job at the moment, sitting at home doing nothing except practice, (this is only in case the MD of our band has finally got round to signing up for this forum:?: ) or scouring the internet for snippets of info or debates to attach myself to :dunno

    i quite agree that sitting at home doing ****** all, all day is the most boring thing in the world. i actually can't wait to go back to uni for my final year and have to work my butt off for a decent degree.

    That reminds me of the 'Master' in "Kung Fu" warning 'Grasshopper' of the ancient Chinese art of ... ...., oh, I nearly forgot that the 'Master' was blind.

    'Down on the farm', boring jobs include:

    milking cows, cleaning up after them, (sweet smelling job!), feeding them, (all twice a day,365 days a year!), picking stones up from fields when reseeding, (good alternative for young offender sentencing!!), cleaning ditches, etc etc...

    Then again you do feel sorry for the toll booth workers on bridges, bit repeditive, no offense 2 anybody that does that! ;)

    Well I have had many many boring jobs throughout my short working life so far...some of which are so boring that I've forgotten how boring they were...

    These include - packing shortbread, working in fast food "restaurant" (sorry - express service), working in various shops, working in various office jobs.... any job can become boring if there is too much of the same thing over and over again, no matter what the job is!

    before i started college i worked part time through the summer in an egg farm!

    That was sort of like "there's one....there's another one...Ooh, there's another one!"...well, you get the idea.
    Mind numbing to say the least.

    And it went hand in hand with the worst smell imaginable on earth!! Don't ever stand in a chicken hut when they're getting rid of all the droppings...OMG!!!!! :wow

    Madam, my brother and I are both perfectly able to start a fight with one another for no reason without outside assistance.

    Thank you.
