I agree, anything to do with cleaning up other peoples vomit and feces would be my worst nightmare.

Did you ever go through Cairo airport (the old terminal?). The toilet cleaners there must have done something seriously wrong in a previous life.

You'd never work long hours, would have few complains and the office would always be quiet even when you're busy.

Not to mention the money - they often fleece people in a time of weakness.

One of my schoolfriends had a summer job picking the feet and beaks out of the pureed chicken, at a food processing factory. Ew.
