The 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 sent it to laugh line, who was sponsoring a "worst job experience" contest. Needless to say she won.

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 to make you realize its 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. Its 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 crap ?????/pulls 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. Now this sounds like a darn good idea, and I've used it several times with no complaints. What I do, When I get to the bottom and start working, is I take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wetsuit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. Its 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 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 5 other divers, were laughing
hysterically. Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make 3 agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling 35 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
tub of ice cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as got in
the chamber. The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't crap for 2 days because my butt hole 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.

So the next time you think your having a bad day it could always be worse.

I

would have thought that a jellyfish would stick better to a non-hairy back than to a hairy back! So I recon this is an Internet made up story ... search google for the story with the phrase "urban legend"
