Think your job is bad.................

  1. Before you complain about your job, look at the regulations employees at Mt Corry Carriage and Iron Works were asked to follow in 1782:

    (1.) Employees will daily sweep the floors, dust the furniture, shelves and show cases.

    (2.) Each day fill lamps, clean chimneys and trim wicks, wash windows once a week.

    (3.) Each clerk will bring a bucket of water and a shovel of coal for the day's business.

    (4.) Make your pens carefully. You may whittle nibs to individual taste.

    (5.) This office will be open at 7 am and close at 8 pm daily, except on the Sabbath.

    (6.) Men employees will be given an evening off each week for courting purposes, and two evenings if they go regularly to church.

    (7.) Every employee should lay aside from each pay a sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden upon the charity of his betters.

    (8.) Any employee who smokes Spanish cigars, uses liquor in any form, gets shaved at a barber's shop or frequents public halls will give good reason to suspect his worth, intentions, integrity and honesty.

    (9.) The employee who has performed his labours faithfully and without fault for a period of five years in my service, and who has been thrifty, attentive to his religious duties, and is looked upon by his fellow man as a substantial law-abiding citizen, will be given an increase of 5 cents per day in his pay, providing that just returns in profits from the business permit.

    So, what do you think? Maybe your job isn't so bad after all .

    I think some parts of No. 8 applies to several, if not most, members of this forum :p
  2. if only the men get 1 evening off for courting then who do they court?

    This job wasn't in Greece was it?
  3. Not too different from the Dept of Ed.
