Imagine a world in which honesty dominates everything. Would it be better? How would society change?

weirdbacon asked, If everyone told the truth and was 100% honest, what jobs would become unnecessary?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

More relevant today than ever.

Companies that do background checks, maybe?

Bye-bye F.B.I.

[rebelmouse-image 18354464 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being a spy.

They're not actually channeling your granny.

[rebelmouse-image 18354465 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mediums.

D.N.A. doesn't lie, but people do.

[rebelmouse-image 18354466 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Detective.

Sorry but... not much honesty here.

[rebelmouse-image 18354467 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Psychics.

"Tbh, our product is pretty mediocre."

[rebelmouse-image 18354468 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Advertisers would have it rough.

Buy our product! Because.. ummm... someone likes it?

Just leave exact change, please.

No shops would need to be staffed with cashiers.

Customers could go in, take what they needed, and put the money owed in a box or tray or something.

TV would never lie to me. Ever.

[rebelmouse-image 18354470 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who write commercials.

That's not bluffing, that's LYING.

Professional poker player.

"Why yes, our service is terrible."

[rebelmouse-image 18345699 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I don't know about unnecessary, but customer service would become very difficult.

Don't even get me started...

[rebelmouse-image 18354473 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Megachurches.

Now even though I'm an atheist, I don't really think of regular centers of worship as dishonest. They believe what they believe, and so saying what they believe to be true is not an attempt to be dishonest.

Megachurches ain't that. Megachurches are where giant lying charismatic scumbags swindle the poor and desperate out of what little they have, in the vain hope of a miracle.

In a world with no dishonesty, they wouldn't work out so well.

Wanna buy some knives?

[rebelmouse-image 18354474 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Multi-level marketing (MLM). I'm sure lots people would be relieved not having to grind and lie so much for a position entirely based off of 100% commission pay.

Polygraphs become a thing of the past.

[rebelmouse-image 18354475 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lie detector dude would be unemployed.

Wouldn't it be nice if they told the truth?

[rebelmouse-image 18354476 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Politician.

It sure seems that way, far too often.

[rebelmouse-image 18354477 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This world is built on lies. Half of the jobs would disappear.

The verdict would be obvious.

[rebelmouse-image 18354478 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Juries in a court of law

Awful lotta witches on this hunt...

[rebelmouse-image 18354479 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Robert Mueller would be conspicuously out of work.

I paid my taxes, I swear.

[rebelmouse-image 18354480 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be unemployed as an auditor.

They can't all be true...

[rebelmouse-image 18349114 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Either all religious jobs or all but one religion.

Acting would become impossible.

[rebelmouse-image 18346018 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Actors.

It's become increasingly hard to get through a day without encountering a scam artist.

Be it an email where you've been told you won a non-existent prize, a fraudulent call from the IRS claiming there's a warrant issued for your arrest, or a neighborhood psychic, luring you in to tell you a terrible fate awaits you, but you have to pay hundreds of dollars more to find out what it is.

From snake oil salesmen to Ponzi schemes, scam artists have been around for ages, and will not be going anywhere any time soon.

And while our hearts break for anyone who falls victim to these horrendous acts of deception, there is also little that is more compelling than reading about some of the more outrageous scams which ever took place (Fyre Festival anyone).

Some Americans have been known to wish they lived elsewhere in the world, owing to certain things appearing to be much better handled elsewhere.

Up to and including healthcare, free education, cost of living, or simply the way they make pizza or coffee.

However, sometimes we must stop and remind ourselves that the grass is always greener in someone else's yard.

As there are plenty of people all over the world who wish they were living in the USA, believing that some things are simply done better in America.

There are very few people in the United States who don't indulge in fast food every once in a while.

Sometimes it's out of pleasure, taking an occasional indulgence in the delicious, salty, if less than healthy, treats the food chains provide.

Other times, it might be out of necessity, as it might be the only option while on the road or waiting in the airport after your flight was canceled for the second time.

But there are some fast food chains to which people have such an aversion to that they simply will not eat from them, even if it is literally the only option.

Making one almost wish that these places would go out of business, so that they will never even be an option.

What one person finds sexy is anther person's ick factor.

It's an eternal debate.

The mind, the heart, pheromones... it's a messy combo.

To each their own.
