Sometimes we get so caught up in our own little worlds we forget that there are people out there who have it a lot worse than we do. Lets have a look at some of the worst jobs in the world.
5 of the worst jobs in the world
1. Guy who holds the “target” for target practice
I don’t know what country this is in but it really is pretty hilarious. Let’s just hope and pray that this isn’t what it looks like! The Occupation Health and Safety Officer at my work would have a heart attack if he saw this.
2. Empire State Building Construction Workers
If you are afraid of heights then this photo might very well make you sick. This shot is from Lewis Hine and shows the construction workers at the Empire State Building construction site. I have seen some footage of this and it really is that high and they don’t have any protective gear, harnesses, ropes, etc. at all. I wonder how many men fell?
3. Navy Seal Getting Eaten by Shark
Imagine going to your job to do some basic drills and a giant great white shark jumps out of the water and drags you to your death. Sound fun? Didn’t think so…
When I first saw this photo I thought it looked too amazing to be real. I did some research and it turns out to be a Photoshop fake. It is a merger of two photos from a popular magazine.
4. Britney Spears’ Assistant
We do a little bit of Britney bashing here at TDM but in reality we feel kind of sorry for her. However, one person I feel even more sorry for is her assistant. Can you imagine what this woman has to deal with? This has got to be one of the worst jobs in the world.
5. A Chinese Call Center
I don’t know about you but this job seems like a nightmare. It would be so noisy and I imagine it would be near impossible to concentrate. No personal space, no privacy, no time to play on Facebook.
