These 17 Terrible Jobs Are Proof That People Will Do Just About Anything For A Paycheck

It's been said that if you do what you love, you'll never have to work a day in your life. Well, not everybody has that luxury—in fact, many people have no choice but to take on an absolutely nightmarish job just to get by.

When you think of bad jobs, you might picture stressful retail positions, dead-end desk work, or simply any role in which you're underpaid and under-appreciated. Indeed, those are far from anyone's dream careers.

These 17 jobs, however, are the absolute worst. From dealing with sheer humiliation to literally working with raw sewage, each one of these will help you appreciate whatever job you currently have!

1. This worker in India doesn't seem too happy about the fact that he's wading waist-deep in sewage without any protective clothing.
2. Simon Alison says that he loves his job taste-testing cat and dog food for pet brand Marks and Spencer and, well... good for him.
3. We don't know why this man is required to hold up the bullseye for target practice, but surely there's a safer, more efficient way?
4. These women are paid to sniff volunteers' armpits to test a deodorant brand.
