I Quit One Of My High School Jobs After Working Only 8 Hours
Like most kids in high school, I wanted money and in order to get it, I had to get a job. I was talking to friend and they were hiring where she worked. I applied and went on my first ever job interview.
I’m not going to name the business but I went to the interview and everything seemed to go well. I found a day later that the job was mine. I was so excited — my first job, I was going to be making money. Life was grand.
After my first day though I was pretty sure this job just wasn’t for me. I didn’t want to quit right away, so I went back the second day. At that point I just knew it wasn’t for me. Two four hour shifts and I just knew this was not going to work out. I felt bad, but I called back on the third day and told them it wasn’t a good fit.
It’s become a bit of a joke in our family — when we drive past, I ask people if they want to hear a short story. When they say yes, I just point and say I worked there for 8 hours.
What the shortest time you’ve lasted at a job?
