Worst “job”? I dunno. I helped to dig two graves one summer. I ran an injection molding press midnight-to-8 in a factory where summertime heat was measured in triple digits, even at those hours.

Those were “jobs.”

What I did, earning enough to raise six kids along the way, can’t be classified as a good “job” or a worst “job.”

“Fun” isn’t a job.
