Everything tasted like shit
I used to work onboard ships as an engineering cadet. I was there to learn how to do things and help the 'real' engineers.

On my 2nd trip we did a drydocking in Szezecin, Poland. One of the jobs was to wash out the sanitary (shithouse) tank so it could be landed ashore and we'd have a new one fitted. The hot work required us to clean it otherwise hot shit would be happily bubbling away in the engine room during the docking, not good.

It had been onboard for 25 years a little resistance was expected so we opened the top hatch and blasted it with a fire hose. Took turns between 4 of us holding the hose at the hatch so it didnt fly out and cover everything....

It was the most rancid, foul stench I could/can imagine.... 25 years worth of shit, encrusted on the side of a steel tank being blasted back to life and hurtling towards my nostrils.

For both my dinner and evening meal, all I could taste was shit.... it was fucking awful and i can still remember the aches in my stomach off all the retching

I can imagine how rank that must have been.
I worked in a hotel in the 90's and one of my jobs was to clean out the kitchen grease trap once every couple of weeks. This involved ladling out the contents of what was effectively a giant sieve that collected any solids that were washed down the kitchen sinks.
After doing this you'd be up all night retching due to the stench that got stuck in your nostrils and throat.

Nowhere near as horrid sounding as your story though!

I used to do this when I worked as a kitchen porter.
No matter what's gone down them, grease traps will always smell like parmesan cheese.

I'd usually clean it out on a quiet shift, because the smell would discourage the waiters from hanging around the kitchen entrance and make them move a bit faster.
