How about "underwear wrangler" -- Jeff Bruce, whose job involves hooking 
and unhooking underwear models for photo shoots, explains that an 
occupational hazard of his job is that it sends him to several cities and 
that he must take his satchel through airport metal detectors.  When he is 
called on to open it, his explanation for the bras, panties, stockings, 
briefs, tape and safety pins often falls on deaf ears.

Maybe "social worker turned actress" -- Alice Salzman, 36, and colleagues, 
prefer the title GTA's (genital teaching associates).  Their job is to 
demonstrate breast, pelvic and genital-urinary examinations to medical 
students and doctors at around US $75 an hour.  GTA programs exist in 83 
of the nation's 126 medical schools.

St. John, New Brunswick -- A judge ruled that telling a co-worker to "fuck
right off" is not grounds for dismissal. The local YMCA-YWCA fired Violet 
Legere after she lost her temper with a fellow employee.  The judge ruled 
that Legere had been dismissed unfairly and that she must receive 15 months
of pay as compensation.  "Fuck off" is just a forceful and intense way to 
say "leave me alone," the judge wrote.  He said Legere deserved credit for 
not adding a personal insult to her rebuke.
