    We always see threads about dream jobs but what about nightmare jobs

    As a kid , I would have hated to become a rugby player as I didnt like the tackling side of it

    I had started to think about what happens when you turn up at the job you very least wanted. Could it work better then the job you think you'd want etc.

    Bunny rabbit killers.
    Though I did get a job offer on a farm in pest control a few months back, bizzarly fascinated with it for a while, but remember the MD saying what would keep you here on a farm, only cos they had considered where I'd worked previously so pretty sensible I guess. Plus least I didn't have to deal with any order of bunny removal. Jeez yep probably a saving from grace.

    Though our town has a woman butcher on market days which is probably pretty remarkable. Well I think so.

    Vice squad police person, viewing the awful images and videos they have to examine, going to the scenes they have to attend and so on.

    Euthanising animals would be beyond awful, but vice squad would definitely be my nightmare.

    I met someone who washes up the operating theatre tools. One is nicknamed the "sh it stick" and stuff would come down with "bits" on it. Grim.

    Anything involving cold-calling. It takes a special type of person to do that sort of job.

    I would rather have the vice squad job than one that involved hurting animals.
