In Which Your Job Sucks More Than Usual

There's a BBC program, it hasn't made the crossover to BBC America, called 'Toughest Place To Be A...' In it, British workers are tasked with doing the jobs they normally do, but doing them in a rather more extreme environment than in the United Kingdom.

The episode which we'll feature here is 'Toughest Place To Be A Ferryman'. That place: Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Since they're all online and there aren't too many of them, let's quickly go over the others. If you see something that piques your interest, either outright or more than the one I've picked out, you know what to do:

*In which a paramedic is sent to Guatemala City.
*In which a bus driver is sent to Manila, Philippines.
*In which a midwife is sent to Monrovia, Liberia.
*In which a garbage collector is sent to Jakarta, Indonesia.
*In which a fisherman is sent to Mania, Sierra Leone.
*In which a train driver is sent to Cerro de Pasco, Peru.
*In which a miner is sent to Mongolia.
*In which a nurse is sent to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
*In which a taxi driver is sent to Mumbai, India.
*In which a farmer is sent to Kenya.
*In which a firefighter is sent to the Brazilian rainforest.
