Default The Most Pointless Job In The World

Just looked out of my office window and I can see a bloke washing the road!!

Now I know Dubai wants full employment but seriously???

This got me thinking, is that the most pointless job there is or, as I'm sure you can all help me out here, are there others?

Default Re: The Most Pointless Job In The World

I know it's not a pointless job but one of the most soul destroying must be the people that paint superstructures. For example the Severn bridge, spend three years painting it, get to the end, add that final brush stroke and then go back to the beginning and start all over again.... Aaaaaarrrgghhhhh !!

Any consultant such as myself.

Getting paid to tell people things they already know.

It is the most hateful,boring, soul-destroying job in the world.

Would rather be a road washer or tyre changer...




bad day.................
