You Think Your Job Is Bad

Post by frognot »

This is even funnier when you realize it 's real!

Next time you have a bad day at work think of this guy

Bob 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 .5 on FM dial in Indiana, who
was sponsoring a worst job experience contest.
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 wet suit.
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 wet suit.
This floods my whole suit with warm water.
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
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 sh*t 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. '

Whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad
Hank Hill : Just in case I'm incapacitated for some reason, do you know how to start a man's heart with a downed power line?

Bobby: No.

Hank : Well, there's really no wrong way to do it.
