Hi All-
I keep seeing things refering to jellyfish and suitcases and people borrowing other jellyfish suits. Still too knew to have picked up all the jargon. Help!!!!!

Copied from Happy thread 15 originally posted by shell67:

We all have "Mondays" and very bad days! The next time one of those
days
happens think of this and maybe it will help a bit!
A Jellyfish Bad Day
If you don't laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma!
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 on FM dial 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. 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 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 butt
started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things
worse.
Within a few seconds my butt 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 butt was not as
fortunate. When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually
grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt. I informed the
dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instruct ions
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
totaling 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 butt as soon as I got in the chamber.
The
cream put the fire out, but I couldn't poop for two days because my
butt 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 butt. 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!!

From the Pages of The National Finquirer
 
"So yeah, man! There I was, just drifting along, minding my own business, when all of the sudden I'm flying thru some kind of tube and land in this here dark, stinky, narrow cave...I was trapped, dude! I could see no way out!!! Then to make things worse, this thing that looked kind of like a pink, five-armed octopus, come down on me, squishing me ever deeper into that rank pit! I thought I was a goner, for sure! Just when I thought my number was up, the pink-octopus-thingy stopped smashing me and then there was light! It had set me loose from that awful place by pulling away this black shroud or something like! When I saw where I had been, I was certain that I had escaped from the jaws of he**! It wasn't a cave afterall! It was a monster...I can't even begin to tell you how ugly it was...I mean...I still have nightmares about it. I'm now in treatment for PTSD. Everybody thinks I'm either lying or crazy, but I was THERE!!! It was the worst day of my life!!!!!"

I just like to point out that it wasn't no thrill for the jellyfish either!!! tongue tongue tongue

I'm glad that most of y'all thought it was funny! heeheehee!!! :)
Missie, I am sorry that so many bad things have happened to you in your life...sadly, so many people can say the same thing...everyone deals with bad situations differently. I can relate to the man who was stung by the jellyfish. When I was a young child, I was stung by one and it felt like my leg was on fire! But I was in the jellyfish's world...I was the "intruder", so to speak. Life gives us a lot of lemons, to use an old phrase, but whenever we can, we really do need to make lemonade out of them! The man that was stung on the butt by the jellyfish even saw the humor in it! When I was in the first throes of A/P years ago, I was feeling like I wanted to die, but somewhere in the depths of me, I was overhearing a man at the same mental health clinic that I was going to. he was conversing quite openly with the gent sitting across the aisle from him. This poor guy had illusions of grandeur! Although I didn't know how i was going to get thru the rest of my life, I still found myself wanting to laugh hysterically at the things he was saying. I wasn't laughing AT the man though. But I sort of even envied him, cuz he wasn't feeling sad or scared like I was. He helped me that day and never even knew it.
My pet bird of 11 years died 6 days ago. I'm sick with allergies and a cold combined. No matter how ill I feel, I still go help my mom clean offices at nite and will do so tonite as usual, although I'd rather lay down and sleep. If I were to NOT be able to find humor, even in unexpected places, my life would be so much worse! I hope that you find a "place" where you can feel better too.
Luv & Hugs,
janet

I agree Janet -- very nicely put. I know sometimes it's difficult to see the funny side of things, but it's something that I hang on to for dear life, because without putting a comical spin on some things life would feel greyer than it already does for many of us here -- the fun brings a bit of colour back.

I will always love the JFBD thread because it's somewhere where we can all throw in our "bad day" stuff and find a way to laugh at these trials together.

Give your funny bones a good ol' hug everyone -- they need to be cherished to stay active. :)

no offense here taken but personally if this happened to me i would not think it was funny....getting stung in the rear end by a jelly fish is dangerous and unusal and painful. maybe i am the wet blanket on this thread but i fail to see the humor and even more so if it happened to me.... sad sad sad confused confused

Janet-
I have to say I thought it was hilarious! Sometimes we have to laugh at things or they make you cry. And if you can't laugh at yourself every once in awhile, then who can? It's a real tension reliever for me.

Thanks everyone! I enjoyed writing the story from the jellyfish's point of view! I'm glad if I can make even one person smile, but if I can make lots of you smile or better, laugh, then I feel very happy about it! yeah
