These are the top five jobs that we’re staying as far away from as possible. We salute those that show up day in and day out to do these jobs that no one else wants to do because we definitely could not.
1. Tax Sign Twirler
Sign twirling attracts those who want a low-stress gig that requires few qualifications. However, there are some major downsides to the festive job.
