 I started a new waitress job in Chicago. I had to park quite aways away well anyways I hated it hated it (yes after 2 hours I knew), so when a parking spot opened up I asked the owner if I could move my car closer he said yes. I got in and went home.

First, I'm really sorry to hear that William. It SUX! My shortest job was my first one - I worked for family the summer I turned 15 changing songs in the juke box, repairing foos-ball tables,  pin ball machines and pool tables (emptying the coin boxes, chaging parts, etc) but this summer I'll work for the golf course only from the first of May until the end of September, or possibly October.

Sorry to hear that captain.
I have had 6 month jobs twice. Once, in school it was a temporary training job that I could have kept, but I traded it for the one I still have now. The second was delivering pizza part time. I quit because the college year was out and I was tired of being shafted my tips by cheap, trashy customers.

Two i can think of right off that were one day jobs.  One was a short order cook and the other was a cashier in a grocery store.  I knew right off they were not for me and quit.

In 93, I worked 4 days at Roadway Package Service (RPS, now part of FedEx Ground). 

I didn't like the idea of people who were younger than me (I was 25) yelling at me like they were drill sergeants when I was working my butt off and I know none them would last a week in basic training!!!!!

I was one of those annoying people who rush up to you in a parking lot and try and pimp fake perfumes.
Made $5.00 per bottle.  Got propositioned more than sold perfume.  I was willing to try anything to put food on the table
as the A.H. ex was not paying child support.

Those who remember me probably remember me for my passion about dogs. I was a pet groomer for 29 years, owning my own shop for 13.  When I moved to Arizona, I got hired at a pet grooming shop, Perfect Pet.  I had worked there about 3 days when I asked the owner and another groomer if they had dogs at home.  Their reply, almost in unison, *$@!Q No, we work on them all day, why would we want them at home?  I relocated with 5 dogs from CA.  With this decision, I decided I would finish my week, and then quit.  Friday morning, I went in and they fired me. Oh well, dumb (**es

#1. Sorry to hear about the layoff 

#2. I was a Correctional Officer for 1 week after the training.  I had an incident where I was locked in with another female officer and the inmates were getting rowdy and we couldnt get out because the officer that had to push the button for us to get out was ASLEEP!  And that is a BIG NO NO. 

I wasnt able to handle it, and was afraid it would happen again and something BAD would really happen.

Sorry that it happened to you!

I really haven’t had a job that was short really.  My shortest job just when I was 14.  I worked at Burger King, but I was there for 8 months.  A better slot came up at Baskin Robbins so I transferred there!  I hated the heat and the Manager was an older lady who liked to work with me due to the tight pants we all had to wear.  She gave me the come hither look too many times; I had to get out of there!  I was the only teen working during the week because of her.  The rest of my friends would only pull weekend stuff, but I had to be in her line of sight!
