Bad day at work?

Postby big_love » Fri Mar 07, 2008 1:00 pm

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 a radio station in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, that 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 wetsuit. 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,
heats it to a delightful temperature, 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 water.
It's like working in a Jacuzzi.
Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my bum started to itch.

So, of course, I scratched it.

This only made things worse.

Within a few seconds my bum 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 bum was not as fortunate.

When I scratched what I thought was an itch,
I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my bum.

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 bum as
soon as I got in the chamber.

The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't poo for two days
because my bum 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 ar*e.

Now repeat to yourself, I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.

Remember whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?

May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day!!!!!

Love Rob

Makes being stuck at home with three screaming kids seem like a holiday - can't say any of my kids are jelly fish :lol:
