A pumper truck driver is important to keeping our world functioning - but not a job I'd recommend. Without pumper truck drivers port-a-potties 'round the world would be overflowing with... well, whatever is in them. I personally wouldn't know what is in them because I have learned that I have excellent bladder control when it comes to port-a-potties... I can hold it for HOURS. One of my worst nightmares is taking the kids to the reservoir and them needing to go!
So Tuesday night after Scouts the boys come home from school - and I'm channel flipping and come across "Dirty Jobs" - and lo and behold the job they're highlighting is Pumper Truck Driver. Just the idea of this makes me yog - I had to cover my eyes during a goodly portion of the show because while I may have excellent bladder control, I have a very sensitive gag reflex. That RV movie... yeah - seriously gross!!! Had to close my eyes AND plug my ears for that one! I'm willing to bet good money that the concession sales during that show were lacking somewhat!
I don't think I'll be marking the calendar for the next Dirty Jobs episode - or maybe I will, and I'll just manage to have dishes left to do... I don't mind the boys watching it - W announced just a few minutes in that he DEFINITELY wants to go to college now!
