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 jobs pages, find perspective through more than thirty 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.
