Aloha Friday, What was your most boring job?

Happy Friday! I was recently talking to someone about being bored at work. Which, by the way I'm not. So please don't send extra work! I don't need any! I have had jobs in the past that were just...BORING. Nothing you could do to make it better, it just was the way it was.

One of these jobs was a temp position at a middle school in Maine. I was filling in for the receptionist that was on maternity leave. My job consisted of marking attendance in the system, and then just sitting waiting for someone to come to the front desk with a question. There was no surfing the internet. No projects, nothing. I stared at the front door, hoping that I could use the power of thought to will someone to walk in with a question. My brain must not be strong enough because this rarely worked.

It was BORING!!
So todays question:  What was your most boring job?

An Island Life


  1. I think my most boring job was very similar to you - a temp job in a small office where they didn't have anything for me to do except answer phones...which didn't ring very much. When you're not busy time sure does crawl by, doesn't it? :)

  2. I once worked for my son in law's family when they were just starting a business. They didn't have all the permits for every aspect of the business, but opened and were doing what they could with the permits that had been signed off on. I sat in the office everyday waiting for the county people to come, and took info from the the customers that did come in. Mostly I just sat and read, exercised and did Sudoku. I got paid great money, but it was, for the most part, very boring.

  3. I use to be a receptionist to a phone that never rang & law clerk with no work for this one law firm that needless to say folded up. Talk about a capital YAWN!

  4. Working the night shift got pretty boring .
    Have a great weekend!

  5. It was an assembly line person and I only lasted two days before I quit. Ha!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. I was a baggage handler at YMCA on summer. Collect and tag all bags and then hand them out when kids return.
    Yea boring.
    Well except when there was the chaos of kids returning for their bags.


Thanks for stopping by! sing me a song.
