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.

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.

I think it is very important to find a healthy outlet and someone to talk to whether it's a doctor, friend, family member, ect. You can even find a journal to write in, if it will help you. I promise you, it isn't worth it to let families opinions and views affect you. I let the same thing happen to me and I still struggle over things that I wish I didn't.

Personally, given your age, the idea of a crush is a bit cute, but you're a little young for anything serious. I would recommend waiting until you truly know what you're doing. (And, believe me, you may not see it now, but you will when you're older.) But, if you really do want to find out, you need to remember that boys and girls both feel things. Boys aren't aliens, they aren't emotionless, and they aren't always just  dumbieheads.  You'll find it funny later on in life from how nervous you had gotten over a crush So honestly, just be straight forward. If you need a topic starter to bring it up, joke about old rumors that used to spread about you both.
