    Two tasks I was required to do were highly illegal but demanded. Fly to different cities to pick up as many blank receipt books at bars and restaurants as possible. Bringing the blank receipt books back to the office and while seated around a large conference table with all of the women in the office and different colors of pens, we were told to forge as many receipts as possible to back up the bosses expenses as he was being audited by the IRS.

    I don't think sweeping the floor or clear out rubbish can be considered in this list. It's something that comes out of respect for those who clean after you. In my country every job specification includes "maintaining your desk/workplace clean and tidy" and this means having to clean it/tidy it up at the end of the shift, no matter if the cleaner comes right after.
