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.
