Whether you’ve had a job in retail, have been a barista or waiter, or even worked in telemarketing; these are some of the jobs that may have had you ripping at your hair. However, some of these jobs you’ll be glad you never had — you probably haven’t even heard of some, if not most, of them.

You thought your rush hour was bad? During rush hour in Japan, there are paid pushers, called oshiya, whose job is to push people onto the train, making sure it’s packed to the gills. No worries on getting dirty; they all wear white gloves for the pushing. So much for having a coffee on your early morning commute.
