In the pursuit of career success and financial stability, many people are willing to go to great lengths and overcome various challenges. However, some jobs test the limits of what individuals are willing to endure. Here are twelve jobs members of an online community vowed they would never do, even if they were paid 150K per month.
1. Underwater Worker
For one user, climbing towers is fine, as they would trust their body and the safety gear in such a situation. However, they draw the line at underwater work because “no amount of skill and safety can help me when I’m stuck a mile underwater.”
2. Mission Specialist on Titan
Ocean exploration often captures the imaginations of dreamers and adventures alike. However, working as a mission specialist on the Oceangate Titan, a deep-sea exploration vessel recently in the news for an implosion, remains a nightmare for many. The claustrophobia and uncertainty of the underwater frontier make most think twice about signing up.
3. High Altitude Maintenance Worker
For some adrenaline junkies, scaling great heights can be exhilarating. But imagine being tasked with performing maintenance work at extreme heights, dangling precariously while carrying out repairs. The reward of a million dollars per hour might seem enticing, but the risks involved in such endeavors may not be worth it for those scared of heights.
4. Snake Removal Expert
The idea of crawling into tiny spaces and encountering venomous serpents is a horror for most. It takes a special kind of courage to remove these slithering creatures from potentially dangerous locations; for many, no amount of money could convince them to do so.
One user shares that there was a company that, after running dog sled tours during the Olympics, had a hundred too many huskies. They asked an employee to put these otherwise healthy dogs to sleep. The user shares they would not commit such an act for any amount of cash.
“I couldn’t handle someone’s life or death depending on me not making a mistake.” Being a surgeon requires tremendous skill, knowledge, and composure. The pressure of holding someone’s life in your hands can be pretty overwhelming and anxiety-inducing.
This rewarding profession is not everyone’s cup of tea. Those who disdain children, dislike the school’s cliquish nature, or can’t tolerate overbearing parents and administrative politics would find teaching a nightmare.
8. Sewer Worker
The dank and grimy working environment in sewers is enough to turn most away. Dealing with waste and potentially hazardous material makes this a job that requires immense resilience and a strong stomach not many can boast of having.
9. Call Centre Scammer
Scamming vulnerable individuals, especially older people, is morally reprehensible. Engaging in deceitful practices to manipulate and exploit people’s trust is an unacceptable career choice for those with integrity and compassion.
10. Child Beauty Pageant Judge
Child beauty competitions have long been a subject of controversy. Being a judge in such events, where children are objectified and potentially subjected to harmful beauty standards, would be morally unacceptable for many, regardless of any remuneration.
While some televangelists amass great wealth and game, their questionable practices and perceived dishonesty can make this career path unappealing to those who value honesty and authenticity above all else. “I can’t lie to people and also beg for money!” comments one.
12. Retail Worker
A member shares their experience working this job in their late teens and early twenties. They encountered some of the “nastiest entitled folks in the world.” Now, being thirty-two, they are convinced no amount of money would be enough to put up with such verbal abuse daily.
