Other duties as assigned

That phrase is always an office joke because it is tacked onto everyone's job description as a catch all - more or less meaning that anything might end up being part of your job. Most of the time it is stupid stuff like organizing lunch for the group or running out to get something. Today my extra duty deserves a gold star. A supplier had an issue with production and didn't ship parts so we ransacked the lead engineers desk and found 6, then we looked through the trash (metal scrap) to see if there were any salvageable ones. We ended up not finding any more but I'm amazed we found 6.
