    Working for Tesco was a peace of piss and the pay was actually good. I also won £140 during the World Cup when an accumulator came through. :nutcase:

    I took part in psychology experiments for cash at uni. Interesting

    Sometimes my work now is easy; just under £25 p/h for instrumental music teaching in schools. But it's not always easy, in fact it can get very frustrating and can be hard work particularly when concerts and exams come up.

    My school bought my A2 art final piece for £100, that was pretty easy. Considering that I'd have had to do it for nothing anyway.

    Was an extra in a film and got paid something stupid like £300 for basically doing nothing. And got SO much free food.

    Psychology experiments at uni - £10 for an hour of playing on a computer :awesome:

    Oh, and babysitting. The people I babysat for had two kids, aged 12 and 15, so I literally just sat and watched TV with the 15 year old whilst the younger one played XBox in the other room, and then I got to send them to bed at 10 and eat all the food they'd left out for me

    Haha when I was 15, I did a job at a REALLY posh wedding as a glass washer.. we had to dress in ballroom dresses because the thing was in a huge tent- and you could see everything, so all of the guests could see us doing this job.

    There wasn't much to do until the end of the night, as the wine was on the tables so people were just keeping the same glasses, so we got paid £100 each for attending a party and doing like an hour and a half's work!

    Actually, I found £2 on the floor in a club a couple of days ago.

    Problem is, girls tend to carry the notes in their bras these days. I wouldn't go that far for money...

    Some cashier at Tesco gave me £20 cashback instead of £10. Good day.

    I also sit on a chair watching a swimming pool for 6.40£ an hour. No one has drowned yet.
