MCB's Dirty Jobs

Well, I have a dirty job. I've been at it all weekend and it got me wondering who else here on MCB has a dirty job?

As for mine, I work as an autopsy tech. And its PLENTY dirty. Pretty bloody too (Hence the screen name). I wont go into too many details for those of you that cant stomach it, but if it comes to a concensus that some tidbits can be handled, I'll put it out there. Now I work at a hospital, not the Medical Examiners, so I dont see a lot of crazy stuff, but some of the pathology that I get to see is incredible!

What about you guys?

Different kind of dirty, but I'm a mechanic. Currently working on tractors/trucks/small engines.
Its not a really dirty job, but the perma grease that doesn't come off your hands is.
Pat.

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave.
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

I stay clean, the dirty part is being away from home for weeks at a time.

Im a boiler welder. Build Parts for power plants and paper mills. The dirtiest part of my job is I do alot of other things besides weld. So when we have to stress relieve something I get to pack the Kao-wool around all the parts and make sure the heat cant get out. Kaowool is a white fiberglass substances that sticks to everything wet. Soooo when your sweating it sticks all over you and itches like crazy.

I'm a floorlayer. I crawl around on my hands and knees in dirty, nasty floors that get trampled by hundreds of thousands of people a year. There's been times where one shower after work didn't make me feel clean enough. It's not all bad, but we do get some scummy jobs. Not to mention all the asbestos tile we find.

You wouldn't think it, but hospitals are the worst. Some of the things I've seen underneath that seemingly clean floor....yech. Blood is the worst. Once in a while, working in an OR, you find dried blood here and there and it just makes you want to puke. Found needles before, too. I hate working in hospitals, they're disgusting.

For the most part though, it's just dusty. Nothing that a good hot shower when you get home can't fix. And the pay is good, so I can't complain TOO much.

Last big job I was covered head to toe in glycol, dirt, and sweat. I was the smaller of the two of us so I got the privilege of crawling in the hole for the air intake.

I work at a mental hospital, in their adolescent residential unit. Most of the kids belong to the state and are court ordered to be there. They range from borderline personalities to straight behavioral such as those that should be in a juvenile detention center. I've seen some very messed up things.

I've seen feces smeared across the walls, pee filled waterbottles flung at people, ive been spit on numerous times, kids trying to eat their vomit, a kid thinking his finger was a sucker after giving himself a "prostate exam". Staff get assaulted daily.

i think it might be considered a dirty job

I so wish I could claim to be a lawyer in this thread :P

Anyway, a mostly clean job here. Though it's a treat when I get to/have to get dirty. Staying clean often gets more done, and shows more competence. Thus, nothing to contribute.

Ever seen a horseshoe kidney?! That was pretty surprising. I was eviscerating and expecting 2 kidneys when I stopped dead in my tracks and saw the 2 kidneys fused together! It was quite a sight!

Here is a good picture of one. This is after it has been fixed (preserved):
