The Worst School Jobs

Volunteering for school jobs is a great way to gain work experience, especially if you've never held down a job before. But there are some duties that you should stay away from. Here's a list of the worst school jobs and why you should avoid them!

Garbage Collector

Picking up garbage on school grounds stinks! You have to clean up disgusting stuff like rotten lunches and sticky pop cans swarming with fruit flies. If you're lucky, your teacher will give you gloves and a face mask - but it'll still stink. Once you're finished, you'll need to take a hot shower to wash away the putrid smell, or else no one will come near you.

Pet Cage Cleaner

Here's another job that reeks. Sure, it's fun to feed the class pet and watch it run around in it's cage, but do you notice all that poop lying around on the bottom of the cage? Someone's got to clean it up! It's not so fun anymore, huh?

Class Babysitter

Sometimes, the kindergarten teacher needs to leave her class for a meeting or a project, which is where the volunteer comes in. It sounds totally cool - skipping class to play with trucks or Barbies for a couple of hours - but do you really want to babysit a bunch of screaming, whining, crying five year-old kids? Think again.

Ball Boy and Waterboy

Being the ball boy or waterboy isn't that bad cuz you get to watch the games and cheer on your school teams. But, some of your classmates may have the wrong idea about why you're volunteering for this job. They may think you're fetching balls and filling up water bottles as a trade-off for not making the team.

Chalkboard Cleaner

Cleaning the chalkboard is usually punishment for talking in class, chewing gum in class or doing one of the other 500 things you're not allowed to do in class. But on some days, there won't be any students to punish so your teacher will ask someone to clean the chalkboard and dust off the erasers. Don't volunteer unless you want to breathe in chalk dust and get it all over your nice, clean clothes.

Worst Thing About Detention?

  • The silence.
  • Being stuck at school for an extra hour.
  • Missing my after-school TV shows.
  • Nothing - I don't mind detention.

Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!

You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
