Today, I needed to job shadow someone for my winter break career project. Not finding someone to take me along to their job, my mom suggested shadowing my dad. Not wanting to hurt his feelings, I went with him. All day I sat and helped him test human poop samples for parasites. Some was diarrhea. FML

I would LOVE to talk to your dad about his job. I'm a RVT and running fecals is a big part of my job. I see some really cool parasites and would love to know how often humans contact the zoonotic ones.

Well, if your dad knows that you don't like his job i don't think that it would be terribly out of line to decline and just keep trying to find one. And you probably should have tried looking for someone ahead of time instead of just waiting at the last moment like I would have. Preperation pays off.

There is nothing wrong with looking at stool samples! Get the fuck over yourself. It's not a FML to do that, it's really interesting, if you catch a good one you just changed someones life long term.

I hope you get Taenia and no one looks at your stool.
