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.

Health Insurance
I used to work for a health insurance company where you had to sign a declaration stating to all intents and purposes that you would not spill any beans regarding any information you may come across to your mates down the pub.

Well being a large company there were regular pieces of correspondance from famous celebs telling us their current circumstances and so on. One day however, I was reading a letter from - and I'll try and be nice to the b3ta lawyers - a young, female tv presenter who used to co-present a legendary live late-night Channel 4 'magazine' show.
Well apparently - and this was a very delicate matter - she somehow managed to get a contraceptive device wedged up her muff.
She went into hospital to retrieve said device with her then beau, the obligatory footballer, and eventually it was hoofed out. As you can imagine this situation demanded a certain amount of sensitivity being such a private matter an' all.
Needless to say, I couldn't wait to get down the pub that night. This was just before the big internet boom so thankfully this news never went very far. At least not more than a mate who told a mate who then told their mates. That sort of thing.

Also, one could search the database for friends or neighbours to see what ailments they were currently experiencing for further mirthment/blackmailing opportunities.

I hasten to add that I don't work there any more so cannot handle personal requests. Sorry.

Length? I'm a noob and trying to impress.
