So... You think you've had a rotten day at the office ???


Recommended Posts

This is a true story !


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


Rob is a commercial diver for Global Divers in Louisiana. He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs.

He wears a suit to the office... It's a wet suit !

This time of year the water is quite cool, so there is a diesel powered industrial water heater which is used to provide a supply of warmed water to the divers. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea, heats it to a delightful temperature and then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose which is taped to the air hose.


Below is the content of an E-mail Rob sent to his sister. She then submitted it to a radio station in Fort Wayne, Indiana - which 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 at work lately,

so I thought I would share my recent workaday experience with you to make you realise your workplace isn't so bad after all !


Before I can properly describe 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.

What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the warm water hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit.

This floods my whole suit with warm water. It's brilliant at this time of the year when the water is otherwise so much colder - like working in a Jacuzzi.


Anyhow, last week everything was going extremely

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.


Realising that the problem was to do with the warm water hose, I pulled it out from my back, but the damage was done.

In excruciating pain, 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 just an ordinary itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt.


I informed the dive supervisor of my problem over the communicator.

His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he; along with five other divers; was laughing hysterically at my agonising predicament !


Needless to say I aborted the dive. However, you should realise that due to the depth at which I had been working, 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 the length of my butt crack as soon as I got into the decompression chamber.

The cream put the fire out but I couldn't make a bowel movement 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'."
