Don't get me wrong, I love my job at McDonalds but since I'm still the newest employee there, they always assign me the bitch work. But that's expected, and I'm not gonna complain about that.

Well anyway, I entered the men's bathroom to do my routine cleanup. My coworker walked out of the bathroom as I entered and saw me with my mop and cleaning utensils. He just smiled and said, "Have fun."

So I walk into the stall, and there is poop smeared on the toilet rim, or the thing you sit on when you take a shit, whatever it's called.. Like, he must have completely missed the bowl. There was also blood on the rim and in the water with the rest of the poop that actually made it in, and it trailed all the way to the stall door (This was a handicapped accessable stall so it was pretty big) It didn't take too long to clean but the smell was unbearable. All the blood left red rings in the toilet bowl after I flushed because it was in there for so long so I had to clean that too. There also wasn't any toilet paper either so I guess he didn't wipe. Blahhh

So I ask you, my new Pit Brothers, what was the worst thing you've ever had to do at your job?

EDIT: I'm suspecting he popped a hemorrhoid or some shit.

There was one time when I was bartending that we decided to move a shelf(all the shelves that hold glasses could move) that was at the end of the bar that hadn't been moved in like 3 years. and it turns out there was a very slight lowpoint there, so any time soda/beer/alcohol ect had been spilled, some of it ended up making it there.

So when we moved it, there was a dead mouse preserved in this puddle of molasses like goo

And since it was 'my' bar I had to clean it up ;_;
It's over simplified, So what!

I worked landscaping/contracting during the summer months between school for years.

There was a time when we were laying sod and spreading manure, my boss picked up a handful of it and started walking towards me with it telling me to smell it. I grabbed his hand and pushed it away as he reached out toward me and the shit went right in my mouth. I was kinda pissed at first but able to laugh it off because really what else can you do when you've got poo in your teeth.

Another time we were digging out a septic tank to put a new one in. The tank was aver 50 years old, rusting and just falling apart. So as we dig it up, the connection to the plumbing pipes fell off from the rot and shit just started falling out in the hole we dug. Easily the worst smell I've ever come across in my life. Luckily I wasn't the one taking the connections apart so I didn't get any on me, but my buddy's boots were covered in turd, almost up to his socks.

I've also had to unclog some doozies in the washrooms at the restaurant I work at. Always kept my hands clean though, let the plunger do the work

At my last job at a sporting goods store, I found a shopping bag tied up with something in it on a shelf behind some footballs that were right at my eye level. I pull the bag by the knot off the shelf, the bag split along the bottom and out poured a thick black/brown liquid. At first I thought it was mud, but it turned out to be dip spit. About two cups of dip spit. In a damned shopping bag. Behind children's footballs. I had to take the boxes off the shelf that were covered in it, clean up the shelves that the spit ran onto, mop the floor and damage out the boxes that were stained with tobacco. Oh, and it got on my Nikes, I had to buy cheap canvas shoes to finish my shift.

God bless Texas.

I was a tutor for kids ranging from 3 years old to 17. I've had to deal with kids picking noses, unwashed hands, clogged toilets, bad attitudes, and whatever gross thing you would expect a kid to do.
I once had to tell this kid to close the bathroom door while he was in there. He didn't want to but there were other kids trying to work.
I'm just thankful it wasn't any worse.

some drunk bitch vomited all over the floor at work a few weeks ago. That was a bad time. Never have i smelled anything so potent and disgusting.. Even thinking about it makes me want to vomit.

One time, I had to help my boss clean out the rotting meat from the meat locker. The smell was awful, but my coworker had the worst of it. A trash bag full of meat and slime and shit BUSTED OPEN all over her face. ICK...

Crawling around in a 3ft crawlspace full of spiders and squirrel poo, doing air sealing with polyurethane foam spray. I'm 6 feet tall and 260lbs. Not fun. I've had to do that on more than one occasion. The worst one was just barely 3ft high, I had to crawl prone through most of a 600 square foot crawlspace, some sections I couldn't even fit in due to the ventilation shafts.

in terms of purely disgusting, cleaning out the dishwasher at the Hess corporate café. Every kind of meat and vegetable imaginable mashed into a sticky goo, and coated thoroughly throughout the whole machine because the former worker wasn't cleaning it properly. I had to stick my head in there, completely surrounded by this filth with no mask, no glasses, nothing. As it dripped on my face and in my hair and in my eyes.

Never again.

I used to work in northern california, which is full of hobos.

Well basically i finally found a job as a dishwasher at a pizza place, and on the first day I had to clean a pile of this hobo's shit out of the alley way. I'm not even kidding you. It looked hard so I tried to scoop it up wiht a pizza box and it was peanut buttery on the inside, so I ended up just hosing the alley way down.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

The whole process of moving mobile homes sucks. I did that for about 6 weeks while on temporary layoff from my old photography gig. From carrying multitudes of concrete blocks, to crawling around underneath the horrid things (with the mud and vermin therein), to riding 3 abreast in the cab of a standard pickup with two other guys whom seemed as if they never found a soap and deodorant they could stand, it was terrible.

My last job was to clean toilets and showers, so every day was consistently awful. Lots of human-juice to clean up.

At my current job, the worst thing I've had to do was move to a different city, but otherwise there isn't much to complain about except for the wage.

Depends which job we're talking... if we go for any job, it's a toss-up between having to count stock levels for four hours every Sunday evening, or having to do the sound for a death metal night where one of the bands had no idea how to get a decent sound on stage (anybody reading - if you sound bad onstage, we can't magically make you sound amazing to the crowd), used Line 6 Spider amps with no mids dialed in, and the vocalist was a whisper screamer (apparently he's better these days) and kept stepping in front of the FOH speakers and then complaining I was cutting the volume to prevent feedback... some things just aren't even worth being paid for lol.

Obviously those were two different jobs, but if anybody thinks live sound engineering is as cool as a lot of people seem to think - wait until you deal with the unprofessional bands with no idea how bad they even are.

About a year ago at work a family came to watch a movie at our theater. Their grandmother came with them, she was about in her 70's. Well about halfway through the movie, the mom came out and said that her mother was having some issues and she wanted me to come help her out of the auditorium. Well by the time we start walking that way the whole family was already coming out. The grandmother was having trouble walking, and you could just immediately tell that something was off. By the time i catch up to them, she's already sitting on the floor, and it's just...bad. She starts becoming unresponsive, and all of a sudden whatever strength she had to keep herself upright failed and she hit the floor. I saw her eyes roll up into the back of her head, she was starting to foam at the mouth....and then that was it. She died.

I had phoned for an ambulance, and it had taken them only about 8 minutes to arrive, but i just looked at the father in the group, and we both knew it was already too late. she had suffered a pretty severe heart attack.


The one thing i'll never forget though were the children. There were three of them, the oldest one looked to be 9 years old. They had no clue what was happening. I tried to get the parents to move them somewhere else, but they wouldn't go. They just kept screaming and crying asking what was wrong with their grandmother, they kept wanting to go to her, but they couldn't....i really can't even being to describe the whole scene. It was gut wrenching and all i really wanted to do was sit down and cry with those kids.


Definitely one of the roughest days of my life.

Wow, that is rough Cody. Sad to hear you had to deal with that. I work security at the moment and deal with injuries quite often. The scariest one was a high school aged girl whom was believed to be concussed who became totally unresponsive, blank look in her eyes, no response to verbal or visual cues... EMS arrived quickly and got her to the hospital, and I hear that she came around and is fine now, but I almost never get any follow up information on the people I respond to, unless they are a student at the university I work and I ask them myself about campus.

So this thread starts with stories of people getting shit chucked in their mouth and cleaning up shit and blood..

Then I read angus's story and I felt kinda shitty :\

#36
Most boring? A tie between grouting tile and keeping the site clean.

Most dangerous? Demolition, definitely. However, that was at least fun.


However, nothing I have has anything on angus's tale. Sorry to hear that, man. Sounds like hell.

I work at a courthouse...
You'd think if you had to go to court you would try your best to look presentable during your case.....apparently not though, because we would have people turn up smelling like a pile of shit covered in dried up sweat and weed.....The number of times I had to walk away from the counter to stop vomiting....
Then there's dealing with people that like to yell and scream because apparently that's how you get things done, or dealing with people so ignorant that they believe Law and Order is totally legit (True story, not even a word of a lie)

i remember a story my attorney told me about when he was representing a client that got a DUI. went something like this:


judge: do you have anything you would like to say?

client: i'm very sorry your honor, i realize what i did was dangerous and i won't do it ever again.

judge: i find that hard to believe when your wearing a t-shirt that says Bud Light on it.


...needless to say, i appeared at my hearing in appropriate attire.
