I carry a whole new outfit. You know, for when the kid you've got on your back pukes down your collar.
John, that actually falls under the category of another piece of advice:Always make friends with the wardrobe department. Going to them just for a pair of dry socks smacks of being unprepared. If some kid pukes on you on set, they'll take care of you if you've gotten on their good side.:D
Similar to Navy advice, to wit: Onboard ship, always make friends with the cooks, the guys in the laundry, and the ship's postal clerk. Seriously, you can piss off the Captain, the XO, and the Master Chief and your life might be a minor hell - but get on the wrong side of the cooks, the laundry, or the postal clerk and you are fucked, Buddy, big time.Seriously, you don't want to be facing six more months of deployment without socks, underwear, or buttons. For Example. Really.
Funny how that seems to be a common thread: in the court system, clerks are the power behind the throne. Piss off a judge, meh, as long as he doesn't throw you in jail, whatever. Piss off a clerk? Fuhgheddaboudit. Your career in that jurisdiction might as well be over.
Secretaries. Don't ever piss off secretaries.
I second MWT. Secretaries and maintenance people to be friends with if you work in an office.
Yeah, never piss off the secretaries, or "unit clerks" as they may be known on the floors of hospitals. I never understood why some interns and residents would cop an attitude towards them. They can make a resident's life HELL.
