They must have skipped asking the Army. Or perhaps the question was poorly worded.

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.

durbnpoisn: Macular Degenerate: 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.

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.



/and usually buzzed by closing time too..

Oh, the other well known profession is medicine.  Hospitals are heartthrob central.

The winner absolutely has to be show business. I have sat in meetings, looked around, and discovered I had at one point or another slept with every single woman in the room. The cool part is in most cases no one gives a shiat.

Was traveling circus or carnival workers on the list? Carnies will fark anything...
 
2013-02-08 11:11:24 AM

Keeve: 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?


I know the DBA that busted the metric.  For most, you're right, but there's a few of them that get around.

Prank Monkey: 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.

/engineer


Oh man THIS.....
I worked in a small office where there was about 12 guys and 1 girl (the finance manager).  She was married, and brought her baby into work for his first year of life...  Needless to say, the Uncivil Engineer never got a chance to be Uncivil...

I was a bartender, in college and the "boom chicka wow wow," was prolific.  I am also surprised not to see teachers or nurses in there.

Probably the worse profession top hook up with is investment banking, during my tour of the corporate world;  NADA, NADA, NADA.
 
2013-02-08 11:28:52 AM
True Fact: the hottest sex I've ever had in my life, by a wide margin, was a girl I met while working a summer-intern job at IBM. She was... spectacular. And enthusiastic.
 
2013-02-08 11:29:29 AM

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


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.
 
2013-02-08 11:30:04 AM
I did work at one place that had a hot female Oracle DBA. There was no hooking up (that I was aware of). IIRC, she was married with kids.

So, the world contains at least one hot female DBA.

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


The grocery store I worked in was like a damn swingers convention.

Worst profession? IT, unless you are gay.
 
2013-02-08 11:40:17 AM
I'll throw gov workers into the mix. The lowest of the low..at least those I know of. Working for Gov in NS is like highschool part 2. It's a joke. I guess that's what happens when nothing short of assassinating a premier or PM will get you fired.

\does not work public sector
\did for 6 months way back and it won't happen again

browntimmy: 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.


This.
 
2013-02-08 12:03:36 PM
The amazing thing is none of them are over 10%.  You'd think there would be some profession, like oh I don't know from personal experience, say flight attendants and pilots, where they're in hotels together for months on the road and it's virtually part of the gig.  Me thinks this survey is flawed.

I'm a programmer and most of the folks I work are guys....from India...that don't know how soap works....

No fishing off the company pier for me thanks.

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.

/no that's not a "some good memories" smile you are seeing, move along, move along


hmmm. Which Meijer?

I think they were just going for the ba-dum-tsssh one liner, not making an accurate sociotechnical observation.

I may be the youngest software wrangler at this company, and I'm nearly 40.  There is none of that fun sexy time stuff happening within these walls.
 
2013-02-08 01:03:41 PM
This list is horseshiat.

Database admins? Theyre lucky to even see the sun let alone a woman.

Mechanics? Maybe if you include gay sex. Same goes with welders and industrial technicians.

Hospitality/food industry I can see... the rest is just horseshiat.

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.
 
2013-02-08 01:11:54 PM

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.

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.
 
2013-02-08 01:46:03 PM
"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.
