Occupations People Are Sure No One Enjoys

We don't always have a ton of choice where we get to work, especially when you're just entering the working world. Find anything customer-facing and you'll have to deal with ridiculous customer demands. And don't think every good-looking job is perfect, because there are also those jobs that look easy or fun but are surprisingly difficult. With some jobs the work is alright but everyone else is horrible, in the case of these jobs people quit on the first day. In summary, it's rough out there, man.

Scams That Have Been Normalized By Society

We are at heart, frugal, sometimes to the point of staggering paranoia. We're the kind of people who are inclined to look at an overpriced jar of pickles and say to ourselves "Big Pickle must be stopped." Just because a business, practice or concept has been operating for decades doesn't mean that it's not just a scam that people overlook. Stupid pickles are just vinegar and cucumbers anyway.

On the flipside, here are some things people think are scams but aren't really.
