I wouldn't say that it was really bad but... a strawberry patch was quite interesting experience. Just pick, pick, pick in any weather with a quite low salary, the boss standing in the front of the field following us, no actually co-workers who talk the same language with you (it has reached the point in which Finns aren't willing to accept that job anymore but most of pickers come from other countries). It was quite monotonous job to do and turned pretty draining to me because of that. I also started to hurt badly after two first days since it was almost impossible to find good ergonomic working position.

But you know, jobs and experiences like that help you to learn appreciate other jobs .

I looked for a gagging smiley, but there aren't any. That is GROSS!
