QOTD- What’s Your Best, Bad Work Story?

Today, I am out of my element.

I’m covering the front desk at the company where I work. Those who know me personally will already be laughing; to say I’m unsuitable for work as a receptionist is an understatement worthy of the driest, most deadpan wit.

Yet here I am.

And the only thing that’s getting me through is imagining the possibly hilarious, certainly humiliating, stories that I may be able to gather from this experience.

Everyone has had a crappy job. And I’m sure almost everyone has a funny story about that job.

What’s your best tale of minimum wage woe?

I'm a writer and a camper and a keeper of fish. I was trained as a flight instructor and work day jobs and write nonsense for public consumption (hopefully).
