This is a question The Dirty Secrets of Your Trade

So, Television is a hot bed of lies, deceit and made up competitions. We can't say that we are that surprised... every job is full of this stuff. It's not like the newspapers currently kicking TV whilst it is down are all that innocent.

We'd like you to even things out a bit. Spill the beans on your own trade. Tell us the dirty secrets that the public need to know.

Mobile phones and pornography
My prediction - as more pron gets delivered on mobile phones it will force changes in the industry to enable the images to fit nicely onto smaller screens. Midget studs with small cocks will get all the work.

spot the ball
i used to work for vernons pools marking spot the ball coupons - once we reached the quota of X's that were close to the spot, the rest of the coupons went in the bin - roughly over half them.

The mobile phone industry
Your mobile phone calls are being subsidised by pornography.

A couple of years ago at a mobile phone trade show some business leader or other quoted that as much as 70% of mobile phone traffic on future 3G networks will be pornography.

That means that anyone, engineer, marketing, or designer with anything to do with mobile phones is actually working in the pornography distribution industry.

Tell your gran!

They hand out the Vaseline here too.
But there's only one place it needs to be applied to...

(may not be fact)

They make Manufacturing work 12 hour shifts. I used to have to be on shift with them. It was fucking awful.

Cleanrooms: re Resident Loon's post below
We have a cleanroom here too. A rep once told me that you should either wear full cleanroom kit (which he was selling) or go in naked and covered with Vaseline (either way it stops your skin cells falling off onto the silicon wafers).

We found this amusing. So much so that I now tell this to each year's student intake in the cleanroom changing room. Then I ask, "OK, everyone got their cleanroom suits with them?"

None of them do, because we haven't given them out yet, but it's worth it to see their faces. Especially when I produce a jar of Vaseline...

Maccas Coke
Since people were discussing it, When I was working at Maccy D's after I left uni we'd mostly get up to mischief when the place had closed. This was mostly because this was a company run branch not a franchise so we couldn't get away with much when we were on shift so we'd save our sauce gun fights, frozen doughnut ice hockey and cardboard cage wrestling until the customers went. One night we decided to have some fun with the accounting system and would look up the wholesale prices of various things. One of these was the coke.

McDs sells so much coke than instead of the giant wine boxes full of syrup that most people working in bars will be familiar with they have large steel silos in the back which are filled up by tankers. If you walk around a branch you will find a small catflap sized door usually around by the drive-through lane. This is where the hose comes in to fill these silos up. Because it is bulk bought in such massive quantities it is really cheap at wholesale.

For a large drink, the coke worked out at about 9p and the cup it comes in was 12p.

The most expensive single items were the big boxes of cheese slices which worked out at 70 a box. This was in 2002 so not too long ago.

I want more work
I did think about becoming an escort (for approximately 20 minutes) and then I thought I'd have to screw men I didn't fancy.


I suppose I ought to get this article written.

Slightly open shirts
A hint of whats beneath - cleavage or rippling muscles - it doesn't matter to me.

I think they keep the best looking ones in the sorting office.

Our postie

Is that so you can admire their cleavage?

(all our posties are women it seems)

There is one definite benefit to working in a cleanroom environment.
They don't give a rat's arse what you wear under the cleanroom suit, within reason.

I'm currently wearing shorts, a baggy tee shirt and trainers. And I'm not considered to be "dressed down".

How many engineers can say that?

Big Girls Blouse
My postie wears a red shirt(for Australia Post), whistles when he walks and is missing a thumb. I keep expecting him to pop out the other part of the thumb and do an amazing *abra-ca-thumbra* trick on me.. but he won't..

in short.. posties are not attractive at all.. clothes on or off

Even better
Posties in the summer with shorts on and a short sleeves shirts, slightly open at the neck.

Quick, I need a slap!

I designed a website for a vet
And put a picture in of a "cute little sick mouse" ready for its operation.

....Really the photo is of a mouse from a research facility, about to be chopped up in the name of finding out whether chav's make-up will give them cancer.

Unrelated, but they should make some that does.
