Tell Us Now: 18 Jobs That Attract Terrible People

Sometimes we like to stir the pot, which is why we asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What profession do you think attracts the worst kind of people?” The most popular answer was “cops.” We were surprised how many people pointed to their own field for examples of bad eggs. 

Note: These are the opinions of individual Cracked readers. We at Cracked may or may not agree with them…we'll never tell. XOXO.

There's no getting around it: some jobs attract terrible people. People who are difficult to work with, who have personality traits that make them unpleasant to be around, or who just make bad decisions time and time again. If you're in one of those positions, it can feel like you're stuck - like you can't get out because all the other options are worse. But you're not alone. In this article, we'll explore a few of the jobs that tend to attract terrible people and offer some tips on how to deal with them. So read on - your sanity may depend on it!

TELL US NOW. USED CAR SALESMAN WORMWOOD monory Amanda U. says, Even the not-smarmy ones are still awful. They never listen to the customer and will outright lie about the product. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. TRUCK DRIVERS Nick P. tells US, I'm a truck driver and while it is an honorable and necessary job I absolutely cannot stand other drivers. It is a skilled profession performed by people with little education and horrible stances on politics and society. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. CONSERVATIVE TALK SHOW HOST WARS Adam C. says, Their only job is to literally spin EVERY single news story in such a way to make all Republicans look like saints and all Democrats look like evil pieces of shit. It is ludicrously and comically bias, but they claim to be honest and fair. It's disgusting. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. PERSONAL TRAINERS James F. tells US, Many are kind, science-based, and caring. But many others have 'pretty from the neck down' as their only qualification and consider anyone who doesn't look like a fitness model to be weak-willed. No pain, no gain! Just do it! CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER Adam M. says, A ridiculous pseudo-job that lets the dregs of humanity publicly stroke their own egos, then expect to get rewarded for it in real life. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. REALITY SHOW PRODUCERS Lennie A. says, They joyfully ruin and exploit normal people's lives. The worse they make you look, the more interesting they make their show. And they'll deceptively edit footage to do so. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. PSYCHOLOGISTS Jessica C. argues, They usually get in it to figure out their own mental problems and end up using what they know to manipulate patients. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. PSYCHICS Tony T. says, Mediums, psychics, tarot card readers, faith healers and other woo salesmen. They make all their money based on lying to people. They also, with no real insight, give 'cosmic wisdom' to people that can cause people to make drastic decisions in their life, CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. MLM SELLERS Amilanne Brandy C. tells US, Multi level marketing sellers; the people above them (uplines) are preying on them to break even or profit, they have to do the same to people under them (downlines) or go into debt. The products are overpriced, shoddy, and/ hazardous yet they sell it to family and 'friends.' CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. LAW ENFORCEMENT POLICE Jamie M. tells US, Any branch, any type, any city. That includes Judges, Lawyers and Police. Amiel R. adds, We can easily do bad stuff and let our string of some good deeds justify!' And a little sprinkle abuse of power to taste. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. NURSES Rachel G. offered this controversial answer, saying, Yes, there are a lot of good ones, however, a lot go into the field for the money. Working in a hospital, I have seen some treat patients like absolute crap and get bothered when they ask for help. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. RELIGIOUS LEADERS Steven A. says, It used to be about the community. Now it seems private planes, expensive cars, and palatial mansions along with the mandatory tithe are the new trend. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. MANAGERS Kirk P. simply says, Those who seek power are almost never those who should exercise it... CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. LIFE COACHES Alejandro A. says, I mean, really, life coaching from a 20-something millennial whose major challenge in life is deciding what is the best way to eat an avocado? CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. BUSINESS MAJORS Heather D. says, If you weren't a jerk going in, you will become one. It's literally part of the training. I (mostly) finished an MBA and they basically teach you how to stop viewing employees as people (I know there are a couple of management classes that contradict that view but the bulk of operations/ /finance classes emphasize the importance of only caring about the bottom line). CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. FOOD SERVICE PB Dallas A. says, In my experience, food service has the absolute worst workplace dramas because it's always people who never mentally aged out of high school. Food service also tends to have shitty, power trippy managers that expect you to dedicate your life to the cause of American obesity by way of McDonald's. Or alternatively, their management is all 17, because nobody else stuck around long enough. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. CEOS Paul K. says, Profits over people. Profits over the environment. Greed over everything. And on top of that, studies show CEOs barely have an effect in how a company performs. CRACKED.COM
TELL US NOW. POLICE Lauren A. says, As someone who worked in the field for years, cops, easily. All the people that actually enter to do good tend to get burnout and leave for private companies or get pushed out for not buying into the 'support our club always' mentality while the remaining are those with power complexes who believe they're on the same level as God and deserve your undying respect because they write traffic tickets.
