I received an e-mail from an engineering blog that helps guide prospective students to the online degrees and programs.
Fun Fact: I'm not an engineer, nor am I in (or about to be in) an online engineering program.
BUT: I thought the article she sent me was cool because it gives me the best excuse to talk about one of my favorite shows.....
Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe.
I love Mike Rowe for his witty comments and his ability to poke fun at the job themselves, but maintain respect for the people doing the tasks.
I also love how most of the workers Mike encounters are some of the happiest people doing some of the most fowl jobs. In a weird (slightly disgusting way) it makes me smile to know that people who work in some filthy "offices" have a sunny disposition.
Anyway, this article talks about the 20 Most Disgusting Jobs That You Never, Ever Want.
I'm going to highlight a couple of my favorites:
Proctologist. A doctor, yes. A doctor of what exactly??
A doctor specializing in the rectum. Can you imagine non-stop anal exams?!??
Dirty job, indeed.
Hotel Maid. Seems like an honest job and honest living.
And VERY disgusting. Mike Rowe should go and follow a maid for a day.
And always tip your maid!
I wonder if this applies internationally or just in the states?
So if you get a chance, look at the article
and click on some of the links provided for each job.
Have an extra second???
Check out What a Crappy Job.
Its a website dedicated to posting disgusting jobs (with photos and videos! yay!) and making some funny remarks about them...
I know your secretly laughing (or throwing up ) over this stuff.
