I wonder how many of those "artists" are professionals?

Also the staff hooking up in the food service industry is legendary, so it's not just the cooks, I'm surprised they singled out the cooks from the waitstaff, the dishwashers, the busboys, and the management.  Honestly everybody is farking everybody, both literally and figuratively.

What about the military?  I'm sure those drill sergeants are good at drilling if you know what I mean.

Bussing tables, then waiting, was one of the best jobs I ever had, for this exact reason.

I don't see pilots/flight attendants on here.  It'd be more like "how many have not?"

As an airline pilot myself, I can't even really think of anyone I know who hasn't.

I find that suspicious as well.  Other than that, list is correct.

Carry on.

I didn't think about it, but it makes sense.  One night in a foreign city with not much else to do.  The only downside, is that the flight attendants have gotten older and uglier.

I'm surprised there's not more management jobs there. Traditionally, being the boss has perks.

Also, welders? Really?

A couple of those professions seemd like traditionally male dominated industries.

Think it happens in every profession, most likely at about equal rates.

My theory is some places more acceptable to brag/talk than others. Some are just expected to act "more professional" in the office than others.  Doesn't mean you're not doing a coworker on the side.

/said too much?
 
2013-02-08 10:29:05 AM  
I'm surprised sales isn't on the list.  Though I guess that's more borking clients than co-workers.

I used to work at wilderness residential facility for youth. It was pretty intense and our time was limited and filled with copious amounts of booze. I went back a few ago and met a bunch of new staff that had overlapped with some people I had worked with. About ten of us were eskimo brothers in a variety of ways. Pretty amusing.
 
2013-02-08 10:30:58 AM  
who knew database administrators spread so many more sheets than the ones they run on Excel?

OK that made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Oh, and the list fails because "artist" isn't a profession.

Hmm...not sure if she'd qualify as a "coworker", more of a budget prostitute.

Throughout my 20s I've somehow managed to only work in places with zero women under 40. And milfs that age are very rare in the midwest. So I guess my point is eveyone needs to stop having fun without me.
 
2013-02-08 10:34:18 AM  
Looking around my office of about 60 people.... there is a total of 6 women. 2 are pushing 60. 1 is an evil ham-beast with the personality of a rectal thermometer. 1 looks like a chubby muppet. 1 is pretty cute but married with kids. The remaining one has blonde, brillo pad hair and her last name is Grout. I don't think I could get past either of those.

The CIA has the highest rate of married couples of any occupation. Most people meet in the CIA, hook up and then get married. This list is for the people who hook up, then break up work for an awkward 6 months and then find a job at another McDombles.

Aw, restaurant work.

I remember when I worked at a tavern/eatery in college. SO many hot waitresses there.

One of the busboys made a small hole in the wall of the changing room. We'd take turns watching the waitresses put on their uniforms.

That's the closest I got to getting laid there, though.

An artist's workplace is commonly called a studio. Performing artists tend to prefer working in some sort of theater. Street artists work in the street.

How so?  People make art and live off the money they make doing it. How is that not a profession?

I think DBAs made the list because they forgot to phrase the survey question with, "in real life".

And welders? They all look like Jennifer Beals, right?

Since when do DBAs do lots of stuff with Excel?  People who USE the data work with Excel.  Those that administer the server just keep it running.  They don't care what the data is for.

As far as the restaurant industry goes, there is a good reason they are all hooking up.  They all work until closing, then hang out.  It stands to reason they will pair off in short time.

I've done DBA work, and I never hooked up with anyone.  I would have lost my lunch had I ever caught any of them farking in the back.  I had good luck withdoing software training though.
Incidently, I have known two unreleated, and hittable, female welders.  Underwater welding companies apparently recruit them hard.

Interesting that there is more hooking up at sausagefests than places where women tend to be the majority.

texdent: Doesn't seem to be a lot of hooking up at grocery stores, but then maybe I'm not trying hard enough.


Depends on the grocery store.  At the megastores you have a lot of interaction between male and female workers and far more employees than your typical small town market.  My ex used to work at one (let's call it 'Meijer').  Place was a total soap opera, with coworkers screwing coworkers (married, unmarried, didn't seem to matter), and even the spouses of the employees were getting in on the action.  Just hang around the place regularly and that's was pretty much all you had to do--the women would find you.

/Food industry is just below the porn industry from my experiences.
//Maybe that is why I was a waiter for 10years
///Oh the hostess..always reliable source and the section would stay full..also would usually get fired or quit making for an easy end.
