    If you don't laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma! This is
    even funnier when you realize it's real! 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
    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 wate r
    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."Now whenever you have a bad
    day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?
    May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day!!!!!
