Here are some of the funny things the team at HC had to do but didn’t really sign up for!Al – When I turned up for a client photoshoot and was hijacked to be in a SA Channel 7 news report on the public health system as a patient. Explaining to my family that I wasn’t in SA and I wasn’t sick was interesting.
Kendi – Handing over all my jewellery – my diamond earrings, my engagement ring, wedding ring, my watch – so they didn’t accidentally end up inside a chicken at a poultry processing facility.
Sue – To comply with biosecurity when entering a client’s facility, I had to take a full shower including washing my hair with special wash (too bad I had already washed, blow-dried and made up my face an hour earlier at the hotel) and then donned boots, body suit and hair net. So attractive. Not!
Alex – The day I had to chaperone Santa at the Coogee Carols, following him from the local fire station so as to not ruin the surprise for all the kids. Santa went AWOL for ten minutes and oh the stress - trying to track him down!
Karen – When the Bendigo Harness Racing Club, where I was a part-time admin assistant, needed a cashier on the gate I was enlisted. It was actually good fun - like running my own small shop for a few hours.
Ali – I found myself in a pig pen surrounded by scores of squealing progenies all nipping and biting at my ankles!
