To help relieve my boredom, I ask you 'What's the worst job you've ever had and why?' Mine was my previous job, Duty Manager in a multi-purpose arts centre that was badly under resourced. Highlights included setting rooms up for conferences / wedding parties which involved wheeling upto 150 chairs into rooms and setting them up. Wheeling tables / chairs round for 2 hrs is pretty exhausting. Seeing security man get face slashed up at a Dancehall night. Just before I started there at been a shooting outside front door involving kids from an under 18's event inside. Shot kid survived but had his trainers and phone jacked by shooter as he was lying there dripping. Managing late night events and not leaving work til 4am. Opening up building for daytime events as early as 7:30am. Chasing gangs of kids / teens out of building in the evening, spesh some of the older ones, 13/14 year olds, one who was big, would always try and start shit with me when I tried to chuck him out, who'd got a record for street robbery, behavioural problems and was excluded from school. No CCTV in building or any kind of security unless late night night events were on, and this is in Hulme / Moss Side area. i.e. Manchester ghetto / crime hotspot. One night a gang of 7 lads came in as I was locking up, typically on the night the front door fell off hinges as I was locking it, started tryna climb over reception counter, only me and female reception in building, she panicked, called cops (who arrived 2hrs later), lads started kicking off. All I could do was try and calm scene down and talk them out, managed to secure door with metal bar, then they stood outside for 1/2 hour banging on doors and shouting. Receptionist nearly having nervous breakdown. Nice. Was shit. Not well paid either, but had to do it to support baby & had just moved up North, had applied for loads of jobs and it was the 1st one that came up. So glad I don't do that anymore.
