    Default Weirdest job you've worked on


    Whats the weirdest job you have ever had the pleasure or displeasure of working on? It could include the funniest of people, strangest of locations, or just anything really peculiar and not your usual Monday to Friday.

    A definite eye opener for me was recently quoting decorating work in a house with 2 cross dressing female (pretty sure they were) bi sexuals who had a pole dancing contraption built in their large front room and a dominatrix themed bedroom. I priced it over the top, made my excuses, and was out the door in double quick time and didnt look back! I guarantee discretion is assured in case they come looking for me. LOL.

    Phew, I think I've got away with it and my price has been undercut.

    I worked on a project building a new mental health secure unit (where the criminally insane are locked up). The site was within an existing hospital with the old unit next door. In the induction we were told to avoid any contact with people in the hospital grounds as they may be somewhat unhinged. When 2 murderers escaped one night, the site was shut for the day while they hunted for them.
    It got really strange for me when 6 months after the building was handed over I was sent back to do some repairs (a cleaner had left the water on over night and nobody noticed until there had been significant damage to some of the walls. On arrival I was issued a card for some of the doors and a master key for the "secure" areas and given a drawing with the work that needed to be done marked on it. I was free to roam around the place with a tool bag full of knives and other potential weapons with no escort and came into contact with many of the inmates. I had the displeasure of having a deranged patient storm at me in a communal area only for him to be intercepted by an orderly and ushered away to what they called a "de-escalation room". Wasn't the best weeks work I've ever done...

    I went back to school for 12 month snags on a project I built - there was a kid just walking around while everyone else was in class I ask the maintenance guy and he said that's little johnny and he does not like school but his parents make sure he is here but he will not go into class, so he walks around the school for 8 hours unchallenged!

    Not one of the teachers could not do anything about it!
