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.

Life as a chemical engineer
I work as a engineer for one of the biggest and oldest remaining chemical companies in the country.

I am currently working on a test project that is massively over budget, excessively late, and we know won't give us any real results. However our division director accidentally told the rest of the board that it was up and running, so he is throwing lots of money our way to get it going eventually.

Did I mention that this project is located in the Caribbean? This means that I'm living out here on expenses, with a tenant paying for my mortgage at home, with only petrol (at 25p per litre) and my groceries to pay for.

We could have stopped earlier and saved a few million pounds but the director would have lost face. And I'm not going to complain about this. Especially with how being a rich expat makes you suddenly very attractive to the local women!
