People Imagine What Jobs Would Be Unnecessary If Everyone Actually Told The Truth

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.

Being a spy.

They're not actually channeling your granny.

Mediums.

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

Detective.

Sorry but... not much honesty here.

Psychics.

"Tbh, our product is pretty mediocre."

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.

People who write commercials.

That's not bluffing, that's LYING.

Professional poker player.

"Why yes, our service is terrible."

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

Don't even get me started...

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?

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.

Lie detector dude would be unemployed.

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

Politician.

It sure seems that way, far too often.

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

The verdict would be obvious.

Juries in a court of law

Awful lotta witches on this hunt...

Robert Mueller would be conspicuously out of work.

I paid my taxes, I swear.

I'd be unemployed as an auditor.

They can't all be true...

Either all religious jobs or all but one religion.

Acting would become impossible.

Actors.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
