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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Back in the dark ages when I started programming computers the people were all <25 and half men, half woman.  I worked at a brokerage firm where there were 60+ programmers with one 10 married.  We mostly worked 6-7 days a week.  We met for breakfast and went out after work - groups of 10-12.

Most people smoked some grass at lunch - a memo went around about smoking grass in the office; we would disguise the odor with some cheap pipe tobacco.  There was an elevator room accessible from the tape library where people went to screw.

In short, there was a (at least) a 25% commingling rate.

I work in an industry dominated by women and gay men. Of the handful of straight, single men I work with, I have hooked up with one (and hope it's more of a hookup), and a couple have a thing for me (not interested in them in the least). I think that most people would rather not get involved with a coworker, but in some cases it's inevitable.

EvilEgg: 95629: 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 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.


Only with US airlines. Foreign airlines still have pretty good looking flight attendants. And when you staying at some foreign country, you're probably going to stay at a hotel that houses other flight attendants and pilots of other airlines, so you get to meet those hotties.

DubtodaIll: I'm surprised sales isn't on the list.  Though I guess that's more borking clients than co-workers.

//Outside sales, flexible schedule, flexible secretaries.


If you're a buyer for a major retail chain, you can expect a lot of fun activities.

thebpem: 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.


Security clearances can be easier to keep by using in-house nookie.

crowbar032: A couple of those professions seemd like traditionally male dominated industries.


I thought I was the only one who noticed, SMH

joaquin closet: The only thing I can think is that welders are notorious liars.


Nope. I work shutdowns for the refineries. Away from home for a few months and everyone gets busy. I know some supervisors that hire certain girls just for this reason.

One job I was on, I was driving through the plant and noticed a Port-A-Can FAR away from the jobsite that had a line outside. Found out later there was a holewatch in there giving blowjobs for $100 a pop.

They must not have asked around call centers.
Every call center I've worked has been a constant stream of people hooking up with everyone.

I'm shocked ... SHOCKED that Congressional professions are not at the top of the list.

"Food service Managers" - yeah, that fits. One of my ex-gfs was one of those and hooked with just about everyone who worked there. Some while she was still with me.

Most of them, I wouldn't touch with someone else's penis.

/ah, good times
//no, not realy

Welders? Strike the spark of romance.

As someone who works in an art museum, I can tell you there have been many successful and not as successful hookups and relationships with coworkers.

Except in Bangkok. Then the world's your oyster.


Thanks for the earworm, a$$hole.

The only time I've ever seen my profession in one of these types of lists and it's for interoffice hookups... we're number 5!!!


Most of the field is in it's 50's/60's and then 20's/30's.   You find very few in-between.   And the women in the field....ugh, they're highly professional and excellent to work with, but you wouldn't find me wanting to hook up with any of them.

cgraves67: I'm surprised there's not more management jobs there. Traditionally, being the boss has perks.

Also, welders? Really?


Really.

EvilEggI'm surprised they singled out the cooks from the waitstaff, the dishwashers, the busboys, and the management

I assumed that's what they meant by "Food Service Managers".

You know what job isn't good for that?  Only every single job I've ever had.

My experience has been IT, more specifically Support Desk folks have quite a lot of action with the office folks.

I was a young software developer. She was an experienced, ex-NASA test engineer. Ours was a forbidden romance. Then the dot-com bubble popped, the company locked its doors and we've been married thirteen years now.

Welders? My fiancé is going to school for welding. He's pretty much the opposite of gay so...not worried here.

Obvious screwing jokes aside, a lot goes on at law firms.  Long hours, boredom, ennui, despair...it's irresistible.

Anybody want to distill the list from that abortion of a webpage?  I had BOTH autoplays go off in my ear and immediately closed the shiat.  Bloody hell.

Restaurant workers hands down.

In the early 90's in my early 20's I worked as a waiter in a "Shenanigan's" fern bar/restaurant and it was a veritable love shack.  We were all about the same age and if you weren't hooking up with someone at some point you were either married or and oldie in your 30's(ha!).

One particular work apartment party we had, a game of strip poker broke out with about 12 people playing.  While the guys had a shirt and shorts and maybe a watch on, the girls took every little accessory and trinket off every-time they lost a hand, which was fair because most of the ladies weren't familiar with the game.  Eventually people dropped out before becoming au natural, but there was 3 couples left(myself included) that eventually got buck naked.  We sat there completely nonchalant oblivious to the party still going on around us.  When the party dissipated and it was just us six, one guy stood up and declared: "Time to pair off!"  He hit the lights and one couple went into the kitchen, another into a bedroom and my partner and I off to the couch.  The next day at work we had an "86" board in the kitchen and the only things we were out of were:  Clothes, Dignity etc...

/sigh, I'm old now.
