This is a question My job: Expectation vs Reality

When I worked as a window cleaner, everybody - and I mean everybody - I knew asked me the "how's yer father" question. The truth was that I was always knackered and freezing, and the only nudity I saw was some fat bloke's arse. Tell us how your work differs from the expectation.

Thanks to Rotating Wobbly Hat for the idea

Otters are one of the few non-primate species to use tools.
They'll float on their backs and place a stone on their bellies as an anvil on which to crack open shells.

I once tried to emulate them in the bath with a pumice stone and some scampi fries but I got so carried away that I pissed in my own mouth.

I know what all fish smells of and it ain't Scampi Fries. Although, is that why gay people like bleach so much

Long story short, I accidentally pizza'd in my own mouth.
(cue 4 days on a drip for salmonella poisoning and a £1,000 loan from Wonga financially crippling me, tried to makes ends meet by offering a delivery service but by the time I'd got there on my daughter's Hello Kitty scooter, the pizzas were cold, the Kraft cheese slices had slid off and no one would pay the £0.89 I was asking. Oh well, life goes on...just)

If only he'd thought to hire your scooter services.
He could have rewarded you with a quick tug about the bins, too.

What sort of successful businessman deletes his replies?
That's the action of a failed pizza delivery boy.

There's always the Caledonian Cow:

"Another creature similarly viewed by modern society as little more than a benign food source - the cow - is also shown to be an astute animal capable of solving riddles with an intellect more traditionally associated with an ape. Studies at Oxford University found that Betty, a Caledonian heifer, instinctively bent a piece of wire, using a gap in her food tray to create a hook that allowed her to scrape food from the bottom of a jar."

To be fair, the cow is probably smarter than the journalist - having misread it initially, he went on to refer to it as a 'heifer'.

Edited, as it turns out they didn't fix it after all.
