I think we had a similar topic here a few years ago, but there are a bunch of new guys, people have had more work, maybe reflections on old experiences have changed, and nobody remembers what anybody else said last time anyway etc. etc. But the "tips" topic and the Bill Maher leaf blower quote brings this to mind. Not that all tips jobs are bad or anything..... Mine was busting trucks at a Big Box store; we had to be there at 4 am, $8/hr, our "team leader" was this ex-military ultra butch lesbian that took her job way too seriously, they would force us to take mandatory breaks and then bitch when the truck was only half unloaded at the end of the shift and these trucks were massive. If anybody hung at the job for more than probably a few months, guarantee you they probably injured something. Huge boxes were always falling on you, and all of their hires were mostly female college students, or guys on drugs that couldn't lift jack.
