I did a thread search just now and found a serious thread regarding "Other Duties as Assigned" but thought a wacky FAC thread for other, non-planning duties would be warranted.
Sometimes it is not just sign pulling, plan review or code writing. Some of these duties include mundane tasks such as: coffee making, lunch getting, picture hanging, toilet scrubbing, etc.
Here are my latest, keep in mind that I work in a very small town with a very small staff:
-Irrigation repair. Our irrigation and landscape guy has been out sick for a couple weeks, so I volunteered to help the public works guys (all 2 of them) in fixing the wacky sprinklers in the park. Consequently, the park is next to my house and where I take my dogs so I changed the watering times so that we don't get soaked in the middle of the day. A quick repair of a couple sprinklers and a reprogramming of the run times and we were good to go.
-In light of my grounds maintenance duties this morning, the town manager poped in and stated a desire for my obtaining of a CDL (commercial drivers license) to maybe fill in on plowing snow in the winter. Kind of exciting, but if this happens I would regret the call recieved at 3:30am on a Monday to go out and plow...
We shall see.
What say you all?
