The worst jobs in America? Wiping butts in nursing homes, shovelling horse manure, pathologists' assistants... but do they compare to customer service? Did any of them look at the rigors of collecting bull semen?

I was looking through the Boston Globe's "Big Help" section this past Sunday (just for giggles) and noticed an ad looking for "Eldercare Nurses." The line that got me to send in my resume was "Experience with dementia a plus."

Replying to looks as though dementia experience isn't exactly a rare requirement...

It was in the B.A.R. (Bay Area Reporter) It was listed last year, but I imagine they have a bit of turnover in the position, so there's always hope.
