    When I was a seaman in the Navy my job was Bosen Mate. This is the fancy name for janitor. Anytime my ship was not out to sea I was lucky enough to be one of the 'barnacle scrapers'. A barnacle scraper was put in a harness and tossed over the side of the ship to hang there and work. While the work wasn't horrible, other Bosen Mates made this one of the worst jobs. While hanging 70 feet above the waterline over the side of a 500 foot ship these bored sailors were known to drop anything and everything over the edge and onto the poor guy dangling helplessly (me). Some spit, while others dumped cola, pee, you name it. Easily the crappiest job I ever had.
