I'm sorry to be so silent, but several things came up and I'm pushing hard.

So here's something for you. The original was posted (and augmented) at Bankers Online:
My first job was in an orange juice factory, but I couldn't concentrate.
Then I worked as a lumberjack but I couldn't hack it, so they gave me the ax.
After that, I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it.
Next I tried working in a muf(f)ler factory, but this was exhausting.
Then I tried to be a chef, but didn't have the thyme.
I attempted to be a deli worker but any way I sliced it, I just couldn't cut the mustard.
My best job was as a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.
I studied a long time to be a doctor, but I didn't have any patience.
I became a fisherman, but couldn't live on my net income.
I managed to find work with a pool company, but the work was too draining.
So then I got a job with a health club, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.
My last job was at Starbucks, but it was the same old grind.
Eventually, I got a job as a historian, but there was no future in it.
A commenter there added:
And now you're a banker......until you lose interest.
I think it could use some further additions. How about...
I was successful at the bakery, but the owner just wouldn't give me a slice of the pie, or
I tried trading futures, but my past trades drove me out of the business?
Update: Added by commenter "I thought about belly dancing, but I just couldn't stomach it."
