HNT* and the strangest job I've ever had
I'm completely naked here. Too bad the covers are blocking the view.
The strangest job I ever had was working graveyard for a company that transferred paper documents onto microfiche. We worked in a large room with long tables on various tasks. I was assigned to staple removing. From 11pm to 7am, I removed staples from documents. That's it. The supervisor hovered over the hundred or so of us making sure no one nodded off. I drank a half gallon of milk every shift because my stomach hurt so much from taking no doze. I got written up twice for purported staples I had missed. When we finished off the insurance company's contract, half of us were laid off. I was so grateful.
What was your oddest job?
* HNT = Half-Nekkid-Thursday I know I said I would only play once a month. But hey I'm a comment whore.
