    I got this as an email from a friend ;):

    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. Below is an E-mail he
    sent to his sister. She then sent it to a radio station in Ft. Wayne,
    Indiana, who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest. Needless
    to say, she won.

    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 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".
