I work in the medical field. I deal with stupid shit all day, every day - and it's usually never dull.

No way, I’ve worked a couple different positions in the medical field. I get it, patients can be shitty, colleagues can be shitty, the company/hospital you work for can be shitty. Tbh it’s was more of a mess than I feel people think it is, but I guess everywhere has their problems...

 

 

@Ox 1899 It sounds like you work at quite a store. Never a dull moment there huh?

 

@Quixsot I’m jealous that you’ve been able to see so much of the world! Like you said, really puts in to perspective things the things that get taken granted of. Sorry to hear about your condition. I know those things aren’t easily dealt with, but you seem to be doing alright. Always here to chat and play some runescape! :)

I'm a Aviation Electronics Technician in the US Navy. I've been on one deployment on a Cruiser and multiple underways on an aircraft carrier. I've never been to another country in my adult life due COVID first showed its face during my deployment. So, I got to see a lot of water... lots and lots of water.

My job consists of wire cable repair, corrosion treatment, removing and replacing critical avionics on aircraft. The best part of this job is that it doesn't limit me to one specific aircraft. I currently work on MH-60R Seahawk Helicopters, which relies heavily on the avionics working properly for it to do the job it's required to do.

@Goatboye I can only imagine how precise things have to work on a helicopter! They’re quite expensive! Don’t need anything going wrong when it’s up in the air!

To be fair, 99% of the customers are great, but when it blows up, it really seems to blow up :P

I literally have Z3Drq0fo5oy.JPG one of these, which just makes the razor blade face forward for easier scraping. JUST for gluesticks.


Because some cockbag, decided GOES ON PURPLE DRIES CLEAR was a great idea.. know what happens when you wipe a desk?! .... it makes the glue NOT DRY and they glow purple!

I'm a zookeeper. Taking care of the animals who are well willing. Cleaning up after asshole animals; tranquilizing/stunning some here and there. Seen some pretty bad shit; all sorts of ill animals and dead animals. I've been working regular zookeeping, was in a team that worked more discrete zookeeping and in a team that was being called when animals were out of control.
As of shortly I changed zoo. Now I work in a zoo that has a say in wether or not certain animals are allowed into our zoos and if maybe some animals have to be transferred back to another zoo. Also when we get information animals are being exploited we get a call to act upon.

A zookeeper? That’s pretty interesting. I’m sure you’ve seen some sad stuff, not every zoo is the best to their animals and not every animal is happy and healthy. Do you have a favorite animal at the zoo? @Minikillers

Chewy is a company that sells pet supplies but they suck because they will load a box with 100lbs of dog/cat food and their boxes are so cheaply made they often fall apart while in transit. Im currently majoring in mechanical engineering.

Mechanical engineer? That’s awesome. My roommate in college ended up going on to be a mechanical engineer! I could never understand all the math. 
 

What a mess... of course they need to save some money on packaging. I’d lose my patience real quick as bags of food bust out of those boxes. Hopefully you can finish your degree and get out of the delivery game
