Joke of the Day

Posted by thesinger on March 23, 2007

Well folks, GCFL.net has outdone themselves again. In this humorous but true story, a man, well, I won’t ruin it for you. Here it is!!

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-FM in Ft. Wayne,
Indiana, which 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 pretty 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 rear
end started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This
only made things worse.

Within a few seconds, it 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. When I scratched what I thought was an
itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into myself.

I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the
communicator. His instructions were unclear because he and
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 and 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 onto the
affected area as soon as I got into the chamber. The cream
put the fire out, but it took two days before I could sit
down again.

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
down your pants. 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!!!!!

Isn’t that delightful? I think so. It makes school sound so very nice and pleasant and many other kinds of nice things. šŸ™‚
