Here's something that bothers me on the regular: Scam call centers. Not that they're calling me, but they still frustrate me. Why do they exist? Such awful jobs.

And don't even get me started on the fact that many of these call centers prey on the elderly and vulnerable, bilking them out of millions and millions of dollars every single year. It's enough to make your head hurt.

Does that sort of job have a net positive effect on society? I think not.

And there are others that might be just as bad, if not worse.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor get--rick--rolled asked the online community:

"What 'job' degrades society?"

"I live to waste their time."

"Phone scammers. The world would be a better place without them, really. I live to waste their time."

Wow, look at you doing the Lord's work. We salute you.

"Quit shoving a camera..."

"“Family Blog” YouTubers. Quit shoving a camera in your kid's face and exploiting them. Go spend personal time with them and be an actual family. It’s just so scummy to me."

I feel so bad for their kids. Can't imagine what it's like to grow up with a camera in your face every second.

"Such a scummy profession."

"Paparazzi. Such a scummy profession."

JAHNOOSKA

To say the least! Hard pass on the paparazzi.

"They exist because..."

"Payday lenders. They exist because banks won't make short term cash loans to high risk individuals. If they would then these places wouldn't need to exist. Getting rid of them would only drive their customers to sketchy loan sharks instead."

These people definitely seem like they get off on preying on the most vulnerable among us.

"People who organize..."

"People who organize children’s beauty pageants."

ItsPaulKerseysCar

On that note, people who are judges in children's beauty pageants.

"I call it..."

"Televangenist. I call it pimping Jesus. Don't think you should get rich off the word of God."

And yet people do... there's something very wrong with this picture.

"Joining an MLM..."

"MLMs. Joining an MLM is like having all your blood sucked out by a vampire. The only way to survive is to do the same to someone else."

mintgreenandlilac

Terrible, soulless traps. Glad I've managed to avoid them. But other people I know have not. Ouch.

"Those scam artists..."

"Those scam artists that call to get (usually elderly) people to give them info and steal all their money. It’s awful anytime but especially when I hear about them going after an old person."

Vanishf0x

Preying on the elderly is so pathetic.

"Whoever makes..."

"Whoever makes/ helps design the spambots that flood social media. I see them all throughout Youtube, Twitch, Insta, Facebook, etc and they can be terrible."

Vanishf0x

And whoever does that has definitely helped make the net a more annoying place.

"Bottom of the barrel..."

"Health insurance executives, lobbyists, and adjusters in the United States. Bottom of the barrel trash."

max_amillion

So over all of these terrible people who make health insurance so difficult to navigate, let alone attain.

Yeah, it's fair to say that jobs like these make us lose our faith in humanity.

Not that we had much to begin with but you get what we mean.

People Divulge Their Favorite 'Rich Person Hobbies'

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.

Admit it.

You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.

And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.

Humans, we fall in and out of grace with one another constantly.

But there are reasons.

People change one another's mind through behavior.

At first you can really like someone.

Enjoy their company.

Spend tons of quality time with them.

Then one day, they drop the facade of their character and show you some true colrs.

And those colors can be stomach turning.

Then respect goes out the window.

And all you can say is...

"I can't even look at you anymore."
