Top Five Lamest Summer Jobs

No matter how desperate you are for cash this summer, there are just some jobs you should stay away from. Check out Kidzworld's top five picks of the lamest summer jobs around!

School Jobs

You just finished another year of school and started your summer vacation - so why would you go back there? Any job that requires you to be back in the classroom, like helping your art teacher sort out supplies or giving the custodian a hand with removing graffiti from the walls, is pretty lame if ya ask us.

Lemonade Stand

Lemonade stands may have made you some money back in the day when your grandma was a kid, but these days, you'll be lucky if the neighborhood dog comes over for a drink! How much money can you expect to make sellin' lemonade at 10 cents a glass? Maybe a couple dollars at the most. You'll probably end up drinkin' it all yourself as you wait for customers to come over, but they'll just walk on by, sippin' on their water bottles and cups of Starbucks coffees.

Library Duty

The last thing you want to do during your summer vacation is read another book, much less look at one. You'll have plenty of time to pore through textbooks come September, so stay away from workin' in a library - unless of course you want to read books. Then props to you for expanding your mind while many of us would rather be brain-dead all summer long.

Skilled Jobs

Who wants a job that requires an extreme amount of concentration and focus, especially during the summer when it's so hot and all you're thinkin' about is heading down to the beach as soon as your shift is over? Don't bother getting a job in a doctor's clinic or lawyer's office cuz you'll only strain your brain.

Family Businesses

Whether it's helping out at the family restaurant or construction business, working for your parents is really lame. Not only will they take on parental duties, but they'll also be your bosses, which means double the nagging! They'll be on your tail about doing a good job at work, as well as home stuff like, "Did you take out the garbage before coming to work?" and "Remember to head straight home after work to babysit your baby sister." Lame.

It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.
