I work at a small municipality building. I do a different task everyday. It pays well, but it is disgusting. Some of the tasks include:
-Being a garbage man on trash day. And we are assigned to take the trash from the local dog park and the local elementary school/day care. I usually rub Vick's vaporub underneath my nose but I'm still close to vomiting every time.
-The local school's plumbing system backed up the one day. Rather than calling professionals, they called us. We were not qualified for the job. We were pretty much doing 1800s style plumbing. My boss opened a pipe and said "ok your job is to fill the buckets and take it outside". Then shit water started flowing out of the pipe. I filled like 3 buckets while holding my breath the entire time. Then I started breathing and I had to do anything to keep me from vomiting. At one point the pipe had straigh shit coming out of it. It looked like a soft serve ice cream machine. And then like 2 months later we were filling the same buckets with water to go water some trees, and it was a hot day so I stuck my head in one of the buckets. I had forgotten that they were used at the school. My boss saw me and said "Boy you just stuck your head in a shit bucket". I was sick for about a week.
-Replacing a wall made out of railroad ties. Had to chop up the ties, and it was a super hot day when we did it so I was breathing in creosote all day. Driving back to the shed, my boss smoked a fat cigar the entire way there.
