Winners! (and some jobs you’d like to be fired from)

canstockphoto4598050The Green Study “Worst Job I Ever Had” contest has come to an end and with it, the happy announcement of the winners. It was a really, really tough decision and I am expanding the top 3 prizes, by adding 3 Honorable Mentions. It might be pity, since the jobs they wrote about sounded truly awful. Either way, thank you to all the lovely writers, bloggers and readers that submitted entries.

1st Prize goes to The Wisdom of Life, for the job you’d least like to have.

The entry, “Discovering Chicken”, will be posted as a guest post to my blog, they will be sent one The Green Study Coffee Mug or Pen and I will make a $100 donation to the American Red Cross on their behalf of their local Red Cross Chapter or International Disaster Response fund.

2nd Prize goes to Elyse at FiftyFourandaHalf, for the job where homicide should have been an option.

Her entry, “The Gray Zone”, will be posted as a guest post to my blog, she will be sent one The Green Study Coffee Mug or Pen and I will make a $75 donation to the American Red Cross on her behalf to her local Red Cross Chapter or their International Disaster Response fund.

3rd Prize goes to Bill, from Pinklightsabre’s Blog, for a job straight out of the temp job playbook (no silver lining!).

His entry, “Ball Bearings”, will be posted as a guest post to my blog, he will be sent one The Green Study Coffee Mug or Pen and I will make a $50 donation to the American Red Cross on his behalf to his local Red Cross Chapter or their International Disaster Response fund.

Honorable Mentions: These three entries, listed in no particular order, included a bolo tie, a murderous dog and panties hanging on a rear view mirror. I simply couldn’t leave them out. I will post each of these as guest posts to my blog, send them The Green Study Coffee Mug or Pen and donate $25 each to the American Red Cross on their behalf of their local Red Cross Chapter or their International Disaster Response fund.

  1. Thank you so much for the honors. I am experiencing a very rare moment of speechlessness. I too am looking forward to all the other posts.

  3. Howdy Michelle! I got my mug and postcard yesterday and wanted to tell you thanks. It was really nice to get a handwritten card from someone, from the Internet. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that and it really makes the notion of “community” real – something about handwriting that takes all the virtual out of it.

    I’ll cherish the mug and the memories, thank you.

    Have a great day,

    Bill
