Let’s be honest: some professions just seem to attract total a**holes.
And we all have our own opinions about this matter…
I’ll keep my thoughts to myself on this one, but these AskReddit users sure didn’t!
Check out what they had to say.
“The executives who run MLMs.
They’re all bullies and manipulators.
The worst kind of people that will tell you that your brother’s funeral is a good place to recruit “investors””
Might be right…
“Hollywood producer it seems.
Over and over and over.”
“There is a certain subset of musicians who are also wannabe influencers… particular people who are very on twitter.
So back-stabby and clout hungry.”
That’s not good.
“I have had a few friends that have become realtors later in life. The ones that stayed with it, it totally changed who they are.
After a few years they are hardly recognizable as the same people. Vain, shallow, and 100% of the time they are in character and trying to sell.”
Changed your mind.
“I thought I wanted to be an architect… but then I met a bunch of architects. And architecture students. And architecture professors.
And they were pretty much all a**holes. It was weird. I mean… how could it be so consistent? But there ya have it.”
“I work in putting projects/bids together for construction projects.
The architects are a pain in the a**, but they don’t have shit on how insufferable contractors are.
“I should have ordered this 6 weeks ago but it’s your fault we can’t get this s**t manufactured and shipped to me in less than 48 hours. The customer is angry, what are you going to do about it?””
The best and the worst.
Ddouble-edged sword, because it attracts the best and the worst. The best in people who want to help, protect, and do good. The WORST in people who want to exact authority over people.
Power-hungry a**holes who are insecure and have short fuses and low tolerance for defiance. If you can’t handle someone defying you without losing your s**t, you shouldn’t be a cop.”
“Substance abuse mental health professionals seem to fall into one of the following categories: a) wonderful, angelic and highly competent souls who truly want to help drug addicts/al**holics (they’re maybe 20% of the counselors, optimistically).
b) burnt-out incompetent/lazy/don’t-care types (another 60%).
Or c) absolute personality-disordered, narcissistic/ Machiavellian sadistic types who really get off on the enormous power/control they have over the lives and fates of the people under their care (maybe another 20%). YMMV.
The last group can do a LOT of damage.”
“Tow truck drivers.
At least 80% of all the tow truck drivers I’ve met have been felons, and about 98% have been shady d**kheads.”
We’re here to recruit you.
“I was a recruiter.
My office had tons of drinking, drugs and married executives sleeping with recruiters 10+ years younger.”
Out of control.
I swear those people are always looking to create trouble so they can exercise their right to kick a**.”
That would get old.
“I’m a casino dealer.
People losing money brings out the worst qualities in them. Especially when I deal high limit games. Plus the pit boss/supervisors won’t throw a person out who is literally spending thousands. Doesn’t matter what they do or say.
The casino doesn’t want to lose those kinds of patrons. They’re catered to. They can be so awful to the dealers. The job has made me look at humanity in a completely different light lol.
Pro relationship tip: Bring a date to the casino and see how they treat the dealer if they’re losing. You’ll see what kind of person they really are. I have about 10 years of experience in the industry.”
