"Perform other duties as assigned" is the last item in every job description I've had. This thread is about the strange "other duties" people have been asked to perform. To get the ball rolling, in addition to my normal R&D and engineering duties, I've Cleaned out an airplane hangar filled with years of accumulated junk. Helped move equipment out of an office made unoccupiable by hurricane Ike. (The "other duties as assigned" performed by the company president at that time involved turning his living room and kitchen into an impromptu office for the three months while the office building was unusable). Establishing a startup's drug testing program. What "other duties" have you been asked to do?
