The Best Jobs For People Who Hate People
Are you one of those people who hates other people? It’s fine if you are . . . but you’re probably not meant for a job in sales, or party planning, or escort work. But don’t worry. There ARE good jobs that fit your horrible personality.
Business Insider came up with a list of the best jobs for people who hate people based on two criteria. One, there’s very little contact with other people. And two, when you ARE forced to interact with someone, you don’t have to be nice. Here are the ten best.
- Hunters and trappers.
- Farm workers and crop laborers.
- Poets and other kinds of creative writers.
- Garment or textile pressers.
- Geological sample testers.
- Grinding and polishing.
- Tree cutters.
- Pottery workers.
According to BusinessInsider.com, here are ten things grown men should never wear. Most guys have at least one of these in their closet . . .
- Anything with flames on it.
- Really wide ties. They haven’t been fashionable since the mid-’90s. Thinner ties are more in fashion now.
- Tie-dye shirts.
- Cargo pants or shorts. Which is debatable, since a LOT of guys still wear them.
- Jeans with a ton of embroidery on the back.
- Belts with metal studs. They’re for angry teenagers and punk rockers, sorry.
- Shirts you’d ONLY wear to a club. If you’re a grown man, your REGULAR dress shirts should be good enough to go out in.
- Fedoras. Only skinny hipsters can pull it off.
- Wearing sandals all the time. Adidas flip flops, Tevas . . . it doesn’t matter.
- Anything with a huge Abercrombie & Fitch logo on it. You shouldn’t still be dressing like you did in 1998.

I’m not sure I can trust a list of stressful things at work if it doesn’t include “getting an email from your boss that says ‘we need to talk.'” But here you go.
A new survey found the REAL top five things that stress people out at work. Check ’em out . . .
- Having to wait for other people to get the info you need to work on something.
- Not knowing which tasks should be priorities.
- Unrealistic expectations and goals for projects.
- Moving deadlines.
- Bosses not quite making it clear exactly what they want.
The survey also found that 34% of people go to at least six meetings a week.
How do people luck into jobs like this? There’s a 14-year-old kid in South Korea who goes by the name B.J. PATOO, and he makes up to $1,500 a night just by eating at his computer.
There’s a phenomenon over there called “mukbang”, which literally translates as, “eating broadcast”. (It’s pronounced “muck-bong.”)
It’s pretty simple: You just sit in front of your webcam and chat with people . . . while eating large quantities of food, sometimes very LOUDLY.
Patoo is one of the most popular mukbangers . . . if that’s a word . . . which is why he makes so much. It all comes from fans, who “gift” him things called “Star Balloons” that cost about ten cents each. And most of his fans are teenagers.
A lot of them say they watch because it’s entertaining, which is weird . . .
Other people say it helps them satisfy their cravings without actually eating . . . which is probably weirder, because when was the last time you turned on the Food Network, and then DIDN’T want to eat everything in your fridge?
Anyway, “Business Insider” says the mukbang kid made about 250 GRAND in 2013 . . . which really makes you wonder why you paid so much for that college diploma.
