Posted:i think you know you work (or worked!) in a restaurant when you go out to eat and neatly stack all your dishes when you're finished :B that might be the same thing as what someone up there said, but in amrikin instead of ozlander.

you know you are a goldsmith when your fingers are black for days on end, and no amount of scrubbing will clear the grit from under your fingernails ;L

Posted:You know you work in St Kilda when you've been at work for less than half an hour and someone offers you drugs.

And you know you work in St Kilda (East) when you find out that the wedding cake you were eating at the Israeli wedding in the function room contained 10g of cocaine in the icing...

I found that out tonight. I didn't really know what to say! I knew they were all snorting coke in the bathrooms but I never thought they'd put some in the icing!

Posted:You know you work as a sociologist when you answer every questions with:
"I don't think one can pose the question like that. [then bla-bla, then:] But that is of course only my opinion and I do not represent the whole population. In fact, I only represent a small social group. Persons with a different gender, socio-economic-status, or cultural background might see that differently. I'm glad we spoke about that."

Posted:You know you work in conservation when you can empathize with Sisyphus. Or that you could do half the work for twice the money if you just sold your soul to a mining company (hey, you only have to assist in making whole ecosystems go extinct). Honestly, if I had the skills I'd run away and join the circus (any circus out there need a slightly jaded & very cynical botanist?). Sorry, it's been one of THOSE months.

Posted:Oh yes: and when you get woken up by the walkie-talkie in-built alarm system next to you, because you put it flat on the floor - taking a nap - but nobody else cares sh*t, you shouldn't be working as a watchman on nightshift.

Posted:You know you're a fourth grader (final year) when you do the driving course, party whole weekends away because one of your friends turns 18 or gets driver's licence and are neurotic because of too many people (including poth-smoking school counsellor) asking you what college you want to go to and you have absolutely no idea what to say.

Oh, the precious teen years (:
