Pretty much everyone who has a job has something they don't like about it. Perhaps your boss is a fool. Perhaps your customers are idiots, and your colleagues are small-minded vulgarians who've never taken the time to get to know the real you. Perhaps the printer doesn't work very well. Whatever it is you don't like about your job, at least be thankful that:

a) you have a job

b) your job is not this job: cleaning the sewers of Bangladesh.

This man is an employee of the Dhaka City Corporation. Dhaka, the Bangladeshi capital, has a population in excess of 14 million, and has recently been hit by major floods caused by heavy rains and an insufficient storm drainage system.CREDIT: ZAKIR CHOWDHURY/BARCROFT IMAGESThe City Corporation and the local Water Supply and Sewerage Authority have recently been at loggerheads over how best to resolve the issue, which has been compounded by extensive road digging releared to the laying of new sewerage and drainage lines.

Whatever he's getting paid, it's not enough.Source: telegraph.co.uk
