You think your job sucks, you might reconsider when you compare yours to these five stomach churning careers!
Cat Food Quality Control
Now this is a job that has certain procedural steps to it…
Aroma – Bury face into a huge tub of cat food, inhaling deeply to ensure it smells fresh.
Texture (Part 1) – Plunge arms elbow deep into a vat of food, feeling for and removing any bones.
Texture (Part 2) – Using hands, scoop out a large quantity of food, smear it across a flat surface and probe repeatedly with fingers to assess level of gristle.
If acceptable pass through quality control.
This job involves the inhalation of gasses emitted from subjects who have very thoughtfully eaten nearly half of their own weight in beans. The purpose of the study is to discover if the aroma of a fart can be a true indicator of a person’s intestinal health.
Human Lab Rat
Being paid to participate in a pharmaceutical study might sound like easy money, but it’s not the safest job in the world. But if you’re up for having chemicals injected into your eyes or nose – go for it!
Recycling Plant Worker
Now this might not sound too bad, but bear in mind that standards vary from country to country. It could be that you will be waist deep in refuse sorting out the recyclables from the rubbish. Prepare to be elbow deep in dirty nappies, dead animals, used condoms, hypodermic needles and rotting meat.
Festival Loo Cleaner
Does a job cleaning the port-a-loos at Glastonbury (or any other music/arts festival) sound appealing? Bear in mind that each loo is used by thousands of people over the course of the festival, nearly all of which have been drinking constantly and will have eaten nothing but junk food. Still want the job?
