Scrum Masters’ Occupational Hazards?

[Something light for the weekend (the sun is finally shining, yay!)]

When taking notes on white boards or flip charts all day you’ll eventually lose grip on an uncapped marker:

Shirt with marker stain
Exhibit A: Marker stains on polo shirt

The marker stains  weren’t impressed by my washing machine. I guess that’s why they are called “dry-erase” markers and not “wet-washed”… Too bad, I liked that shirt.

I wonder what other occupational “hazards” SMs are prone to? A slight addicition to marker and / or post-it fumes? Leg cramps due to standing, standing, standing? What else?
