It’s been a while since we’ve had a contest around here. Let’s rectify that problem right away, shall we? For your chance to win a copy of ‘The Office: Season 6’ on Blu-ray, all you have to do is tell us all about the worst job you’ve ever had. You’ve had a bad job, haven’t you? Of course you have. Follow after the break for the details on how to win.
We’ve all had bad jobs at one time or another, I’m sure. Maybe the job itself just stunk. Maybe you had an impossibly demanding boss. Maybe your otherwise tolerable workday was repeatedly ruined by one obnoxious co-worker. Now is your time to vent. Describe what that sucked so bad about this job, and you might win the Blu-ray edition of ‘The Office: Season 6‘. That’s 25 episodes of awkward hilarity, yours for free!
Me? My worst job happened the summer after my freshman year of college. I was a telemarketer for all of one and a half days. I had to cold call random strangers to sell tickets to a country music concert for some singer I’d never even heard of. Let me tell you, these were not the Glengarry leads I was working from either, not at all. I sold precisely zero tickets and was fired. The cherry on this sundae? One of the people I called was also a telemarketer, who heckled me for doing such a lousy job. And he was right! That was the longest day and a half of my life.
What’s your story? Put it to writing in the comments below. Try to keep your entries to less than 500 words, if you can. (Please, no epic novel-length rants. Be concise.) The stories can be funny or sad or angry, or anything else you want. A winner will be chosen at my own subjective discretion based on whatever mood I’m in and whatever strikes me as being my favorite.
One entry per person. This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. Winners of our previous contests are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.
The deadline for entry is Friday, September 3rd. The winner will be announced the following Monday, September 6thTuesday, September 7th. (I just realized that Monday is a holiday, sorry.)
Sadly, we only have one copy of ‘The Office: Season 6’ to give away. So there can only be one winner, and no Runners Up this time.
Good luck to everyone who enters!
