    Whoa... this is a really cool exercise.

    Driving a city bus
    Drained and stressed at the physical awareness I'd need to keep my concentration.

    Interviewing on the telephone
    Like in HR? It probably depends on how interesting the job position and the people I interviewed were.

    Cleaning an office building
    I'd enjoy the physical movement of the job, but feel it a bit mundane and repetitious.

    Keeping inventory of a storage hall
    I would get a charge out of studying the tools, methods, and data they are collecting. 1 day would be pretty neat.

    Offering product samples in the mall
    Miserable.

    Filling candy machines
    Sugar crashed.

    Writing data from papers to a database
    Tired and glad to be free at the end of the day.

    Interesting idea!

    Driving a city bus
    Assuming I was actually savvy/comfortable with the technical details of actually driving the bus, I'd probably feel ok. But if I had had to deal with a lot of chaos and disruptive passengers or the like, I'd be totally stressed.

    Interviewing on the telephone
    Not good. Worn out.

    Cleaning an office building
    Perhaps ok, as it would be 8 hours of activity, at least, and I would be staying busy, and would have that time to myself without having to interact with anyone. On second thought, no, I'd feel unclean and agitated because of that, I'd want to take a shower or something.

    Keeping inventory of a storage hall
    Ok for 8 hours. But definitely bored and ancy to get out and away.

    Offering product samples in the mall
    Shitty. This is like a nightmare job for me. I'd be irritable, stressed, and exhausted.

    Filling candy machines
    Eh...ok. I assume I'd be going all over the city, staying busy, moving from place to place, so there'd be time to think and the driving time between places would break up the monotony.

    Writing data from papers to a database
    Fine for just 8 hrs. I've done lots of data entry in the past. Wouldn't be a big deal for just a day, but definitely bored by the end and very ancy/impatient to get away.

    Assembling simple products[/QUOTE]
    I dunno. Ok, maybe. It would be a hands-on activity, again I'd stay busy, so it would be fine. But no...when I read the question I was thinking of arts and crafts, haha!! If this were in an industrial/factory setting, I'd be miserable.

    I have much respect for those who are the backbone of our society, those who work jobs that we tend to overlook and take for granted of..

    Driving a city bus
    After 8 hrs. (assuming it's not an electric bus), the inhalation of smog, traffic would really give me a headache. The buzzing sound of the engine would definitely add to the general feeling of fatigue, malaise.

    Interviewing on the telephone
    I would need a few cups of water, as my mouth would get dry, and dealing with the "No thank yous.. I gotta run. Or take me off the list, will-ya" responses could really make me feel.. tired/hopeless.

    Cleaning an office building
    Windex/409/inhalation of chemicals/dust particles can really wear me down..

    Keeping inventory of a storage hall
    Inventory?

    Offering product samples in the mall
    Free samples anyone? Chicken? Beef? Care to have your hair straightened? No thanku..

    Filling candy machines
    Can I sneak a piece of Recess Pieces?

    Writing data from papers to a database
    Office work?

    Assembling simple products
    I can imagine how people may want to start to go postal if they're working like machines/get treated like it.

    Interesting topic..

    Driving a city bus
    Yeah, be prepared for the Great Bus Crash of 2009, because I have the tendency to get lost in my head while driving.

    Interviewing on the telephone
    Shoot me now.

    Cleaning an office building
    Eh, boring, if no one bothered me the entire time, it might be tolerable.

    Keeping inventory of a storage hall
    My attention to detail is non-existent. I'd get fired after a day.

    Offering product samples in the mall
    People everywhere, talking, laughing, moving around me at all times while I was forced to smile and most likely wear some ridiculous outfit with frills... I'm going to have to go with 'shoot me now' again.

    Filling candy machines
    Dull, but again, if I wasn't bothered, I could tolerate it.

    Writing data from papers to a database
    I think I'd actually fall asleep on top of the keyboard.

    Assembling simple products
    The first twenty would go all right. The next five hundred or so would have their arms attached to where their heads should be. Repetitive tasks is just an invitation for me to retreat to my head and get myself fired.
