The Nastiest Job of All

Nasty job in St Kilda alert!

If you thought the war interrogator position in Iraq was bad.... This one hurts even thinking about it.

Ready for it?

Okay, they're looking for people to "establish a long term career" as a Parking Inspector in the super-hazardous streets of Melbourne suburb of St Kilda.

The advertisement reckons you have to "deal with a variety of personalities (per person, mostly)" and (this cracks me up) you must "have the ability to remain level headed under all circumstances." This is a slight understatement.

While it looks pretty, most of St Kilda makes Kabul look like sunny Stepford.

St Kilda. Shithouse.
