Average Day at Work
Marcus stepped heavy steel-toed boots into his coveralls. Zipping up with a firm grip, it shielded the majority of his body. Then putting on gloves and safety goggles, he was now ready to start his work day. The odor that permeated the scene had become commonplace for him. Even before he reached the body, he noticed that the decomposition process had already begun. Climbing under the caution tape, Marcus surveyed the environment to make sure that all of the evidence was tagged beforehand. Whoever did this, definitely did not think about who would have to clean up this mess.

At least he is dressed for success. A true professional. I would not want the images that Marcus has in his memory.
It is interesting how many people have jobs that have desensitized them to difficult things in life.
Unique take on the prompt! 🙂

I think one would have to be good at compartmentalizing their emotions and thoughts. I’d be terrible at this job!
