Oh, I definitely have to join in on this one. LOL. Not a weird JOB, but something weird and funny that happened at a job!
So I was working for the city as a student payroll assistant (helped with bi-weekly payroll stuff) and because the city offices here are pretty chill, we didn't have to dress formally, as long as it was clean/non-provocative. Anyway, so I have super short hair, and kinda look like a guy... (I get mistaken for one loads of times), but usually, the moment I open my mouth and look embarrassed, people are like, OMG, I'm so sorry miss >.<
Anyway, there was this one morning, when I was going into the lady's bathroom, and at the same time, this tiny little Asian cleaning lady comes out with all her supplies and she just starts yapping at me in really heavily accented English. She kept on pointing at the MEN's bathroom across the hall and literally would NOT let me enter! I was half laughing and half wondering how my voice didn't totally peg me as female.
Anyway, she actually tries to lead me to the men's room, like, "this! This!", and one of my co-workers comes out, and starts laughing hysterically, and I think FINALLY, it sinks in on the cleaning lady, and she starts apologizing, and backing away.
LOL. Funniest day on the job ever. Definitely. And of course, I get many co-workers suggesting I wear a wig/skirt/sign next time I head for the bathroom.
6 - wait... no... 14 bettas... and counting!
