    Have you had a Jellyfish Bad Day?

    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 a radio station 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 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 equipment sucks the water out of
    >the sea, heats it to a delightful temperature, 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 wetsuit. 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 bum started to itch. So, of course, I
    >scratched it. This only made things worse. Within a few seconds my bum
    >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 bum was not as fortunate.
    >When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding
    >the jellyfish into the crack of my bum.

    >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
    >totalling 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 bum as soon as I got in the chamber. The cream put the fire out,
    >but I couldn't poo for two days because my bum 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 arse.
    >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!!!!!
