What are some odd things you or others do at your job?

That would get you in trouble or fired from other jobs?

My boss is very hands on type that likes to pinch and spank butts. She does this to everyone. I always spank her back.

I also am known as the massuse. I always massage the female co-workers during Lunch. I even get texts from one of the girls on my day off if I'm coming in to give her a massage.

I have a very strange work environment

I get to surf the web during down times and the boss doesn't really care.

I hung five packets of Hellman's off my nametag yesterday in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.

Nerf dart gun battles, I swear like a sailor, surf the web a lot, leave early, arrive late, take long lunches... if we were allowed to drink and smoke here I'd basically be working at Sterling Cooper.

(to note, I do get all my work done and do it pretty damn well.)

I know of one marketer who sleeps with a physician to get patients funneled to our buildings.

Our Receptionist is never actually at her desk. She's always off doing other things. She hates answering the phone. She picked the wrong line of work.

iirc, how about no!

*edit to add*

Evidently I thought at the time the one on the couch with the purple flipflops was doable. Was she the big boobed one? Was the boss even there that night???????

The way the phones worked at my last job was that if the receptionist was away from her desk, every line would ring at the same time. First person to get it would transfer the call to whoever.

The receptionist would turn this feature on all the time while she was sitting at her desk and thumbing through Facebook or playing Candy Crush. We knew she was doing this so we would stop answering the phone. Sometimes I'd walk by her while the phone was ringing and she'd be complaining because no one was answering the phones.

Our organization is observing Safety Week this week, and the Kansas Highway Patrol was here yesterday to demonstrate a rollover accident. Unfortunately, the truck they were going to roll over could not be started. Apparently, there is NOTHING in the entire state of Kansas that Gov. Brownback has not screwed up.

My team and I get along very well, and sometimes hang out outside of work. This is seen as "weird" by just about all of our co-workers.

Where are Henry Ford, J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie and William Randolph Hearst when we need them? They wouldn't have put up with any of this shit!

Nose picking is getting rather popular around the office.
