World's worst job

#1
Taken from 'The Economist', 7th July 2012. Obituary for 'Lonesome George', the Galapagos tortoise:

'In 1993 two females of a different sub-species [of tortoise] were put into his corral. He ignored them. When at last he finally decided to do his duty, in 2008 and occasionally later, the eggs failed to hatch. Clearly he was a slow burner. Possibly he was gay. He refused to be turned on even when a female Swiss zoology graduate, smeared in tortoise hormones, gave him manual stimulation for four months'.

A 120 days wanking off a queer tortoise? Surely even Army dog handlers get more time off.

I don't wish to detract from inter-service banter by any means, however, the honey sucker operator on Agricola III seemed to be a fairly fucking awful employment. From outside looking in, you understand.

There was a bloke on my Class one Fitters course who had transferred form The Lifeguards(i think).One of the jobs he mentioned was "sheath cleaning".I believe it's cleaning all the smeg from a horses foreskin,unless he was winding us up.

I think you get a bit of extra dosh for that. I seem to remember the honey suckers on Grapple III being pretty happy with their lot.
Yes, it's very subjective. When comparing the "lots" between someone who is employed to pump the shit out of NATO Portaloos in high summer (trying to breathe through a filter improvised from your own work stained clothes) and freezing winter (having to smash the piss-ice with a hammer in order to suck out the shite)with the alternative of not being employed by SFOR in say the 'terp role, yes, tough decision.

Although it does remind me of the time two colleagues were lifting bin bags of human waste onto BV ski racks for onward disposal. Eventually one of the bags of shite was carelessly dragged over a hook on the ski rack, disembowelling the half filled bin bag and emptying several kilos of fermenting piss and shite all over Danny who's turn it was to lift, as opposed to Dave who was in the ski rack in the "lift OVER the hooks" position.

Oh how we laughed, well all of us except Danny of course. Meh.

I have some horsey friends, that is true. Supposed to be done twice a year, which sounds about right.
