Follow-up: What’s the dirtiest job you’ve ever had?
ANDY KRUEGER |Game programmer | Seaside
A: A racecar driver. I worked at Laguna Seca for seven years. But I just got stabbed and was in a crazy accident. I lost my license.
Crap Out: Plumbing in a hotel. People blow those places up. We had to change all the plumbing, very nasty, working with sewage. It’s dirty, stinky, your moving shit out of pipes.
BRENDA BROWN | Bus driver | Seaside
A: Either a vet or a musician. I’m not a vet because I can’t stand the site of blood. I did a little music, but that fell through.
Pillow Talk: I was a maid. You wouldn’t believe the nasty stuff people leave in the room. Dirty toilets, like somebody missed.
RICHARD THOMPSON | Teacher | Oakland
A: A pro basketball player. My third year in college I tore my ACL. So I got into teaching.
Bloody Hell: I was a part of a butchers union in Chicago. I cleaned up blood. I’d pour sawdust on the floor so the butchers wouldn’t slip. At the end of the day I was covered with blood.
