    Default Bad day on the job ?

    This is even funnier when you realize it's real! Next time you have a
    bad day at work...think of this guy.

    Rob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana.
    He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs. Below is an
    E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103.2 on FM
    dial in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, who was sponsoring a worst job experience

    Needless to say, she won.

    "Hi Sue,
    Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother. Last week I had
    a bad day at the office. I know you've been feeling down lately at
    work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it's
    not so bad after all. Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first
    must bore you with a few technicalities of my job. As you know, my office
    lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a

    This time of year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm
    is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000
    piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a

    delightful temperature. It then pumps it down to the diver through a
    garden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a
    darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints. What I
    do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and
    stuff it down the back of my wetsuit. This floods my whole suit with warm

    It's like working in a Jacuzzi. Everything was going well until all
    of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This

    Only made things worse. Within a few seconds my butt started to burn. I
    pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done. In agony I
    realized what had happened. The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish
    and pumped it into my suit. Now, since I don't have any hair on my back,
    the jellyfish couldn't stick to it. However, the crack of my butt was not as
    fortunate. When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was
    actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt. I informed the dive
    supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instructions were
    unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were
    all laughing hysterically.

    Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make three
    agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling thirty-five minutes
    before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression. When
    I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet. As
    I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down
    his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt
    as soon as I got in the chamber. The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't
    poop for two days because my butt was swollen shut.

    So, next time you're having a bad day at work, think about how much
    worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your butt. Now repeat to
    yourself, I love my job, I love my job, I love my job ".
