    If I had a dime for every time I've said "I Love my job." I couldn't
    help but laugh as I read this. 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 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

    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
    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."
    Now whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?
    May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day!!!!!
