    Coca-Cola bottling line in 1970. There were about 6 stations you rotated to every half hour: loading empty bottles into the cleaner, unloading finished cases, etc. One station involved sitting on a stool, watching the bottled cokes march by with a backlight behind them. You had to look for "things" that were in the bottle with the coke. Usually when you went to that station, you had to wake the guy up on the stool. Haven't had a coke since.

    Eww! They say if you knew what was in processed food you'd never buy it. But I showed my son the 'how its made' on hotdogs hoping this would work & he still wanted them!

    The most brainless job I ever did was in an office.
    All the workers, or telephonists, I think they called us: sat at a desk with a script & list of numbers.
    This was about 20 years ago & I was an art student. My shift was after college in the evening. I lasted two shifts. Someone listened into your calls & if you deviated from the script it was their job to stand up & point to you. Then a manager sent you off & you didn't get paid.
    The script started, "hello (insert name from list matching number called), I'm calling from Zenith Windows. Now, I'm not calling to sell you anything...."
    You had to book 3 appointments a shift.

    Which means, basically, that now you're the Head Manager of Lettuce

    I've heard of these people for whom 1+1 is never 2. But I've never witnessed this phenomenon.
    Thank you, always enjoying the new things life can offer. Must be the art student years which taught me this!

    Likely not but I'd bet he has a lot of wooden nickles.

    I 'worked' as a model for a life drawing class at an elderly people's art club, sitting motionless for three hours, three times a week. I felt I simply couldn't hack it after about a fortnight although it was the owner's dog biting my face as I sat there on the stool, and all the 'artists' laughing, that proved to be the last straw.

    Do you think the experience prepared you for the General Forum?

    Well I certainly prefer licking to biting but one can't be too choosy on this Forum.

    If you weren't quite such a bumpkin you'd have realised that that was the gag I was revisiting, albeit in a rather more sophisticated way than you were able to manage. 😛
