You Think Your Job Stinks!

by Regan, Patrick

Condition: Fine


Kansas City Missouri: Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2007. Book. Fine. Trade Paperback. First Edition. 16mo - 5.5 In Tall. Unpaginated, about 50 pp. on glossy stock. New, with pre-publication press material laid in. Color photos every other page. Novelty humor book spotlighting jobs that are particularly undesirable, such as bingo caller, alligator wrestler, postal mail sorter, and sumo diaper launderer. Purely subjective and debatable, of course, but it might bring a chuckle to a stressed-out co-worker..

According to a recent Gallup Poll, 88% of Americans are dissatisfied with some aspect of their current vocations. * The perfect "and you thought your job was lousy" antidote to Monday-morning blues as well as a humorous pick-me-up for recent graduates searching for that ideal first job. Jammed copier machines, new assignments with unrealistic deadlines, duplication of efforts-if such occurrences constitute another day on the job, Patrick Regan offers solace and amusement by presenting humorous quips alongside real-world on-the-job photos of occupations like human cannonball, vermin control agent, and bulletproof vest tester. Instead of reaching for the want ads, find perspective through more than 30 portraits of less-than-ideal occupations, including: * Casket Maker: Forty years on the job, and not one lousy time has a customer commented on the craftsmanship and attention to detail. * Lost Baggage Handler: Congratulations. You will forever be remembered as the lady who ruined Christmas. *Deodorant Scent Tester: No way around it-this job is the pits.
