Ever feel so bored and useless in work that you constantly ask 'What am I doing here?'
It's an unpleasant feeling to have but at least take comfort in the fact that there is at least person out there that feels their work is even more insignificant than you.

I imagine being a lifeguard at the Olympics is about as pointless as being a weatherman in San Diego pic.twitter.com/aHL6o7gLzU

When your job is to save some of the strongest swimmers in the world from drowning, it really is hard not to feel utterly pointless.
Hopefully he's being well compensated for the boredom and the amusement the world is getting at his expense.

This just came up on Facebook. It never occurred to me before the Olympics would need a lifeguard. ðŸ˜‚ pic.twitter.com/Nvip9lUo62
