You ever had a job you really disliked doing?
A job you struggled to get out of bed in the mornings to go to?
Before I started in this fantastic world of involves promotional products, I experienced having that kind of job.
The worse job I ever had was when I was 15 years old. It was something I thought I was so passionate about doing at the time, I left school early to start the training.
It was part block release at college and part on the job training. At the end of it, I’d be a qualified motor mechanic.
This was the dream job of most of my school friends at the time, so it was only natural I should follow the herd. Lots of people said it was a great career to get into, so it must have been. My Dad even promised he’d buy me a garage when I qualified so I could run my own business.
There were about 15 people in my class and we’d spend some days in the classroom being taught all about engines and everything else that makes a car work and the rest of the time building engines from scratch and changing parts like brake shoes and exhausts and the like.
The first few weeks were fine and some of the college work, I sort of enjoyed. I was paid £5.00 a week and an extra 50p for working in the garage that sponsored me every Saturday morning.
My dream job very soon became my worst nightmare. I remember working in the garage between college times in the freezing cold, fingers numb, hands cut to shreds trying to undo rusty nuts, and the worst thing was the oil and grease stains that became ingrained in my hands.
I felt trapped. This was the job I’d always wanted, there was no other option, and there was nothing else I wanted to do.
Anyway, after a month or so, I finally plucked up the courage to admit this wasn’t for me and left the glamour of the garage and went back to college.
Most people end up in jobs they don’t enjoy doing and believe there’s no way out when in fact there is.
