Mudder, I think perhaps it's best I can't view that clip and so ( once again ) I have no real clue what you are on about.

Aw, here's an animated gif of Jake kissing his Everything Burrito.

Since each time I look at the Appealing professions thread I think it says 'appalling', I thought I would add to the confusion and provoke thought on that subject.

I'm very grateful for the people who choose to do these as professions. I think they are very brave!

- Telemarketer (what an ungrateful job)
Especially the ones at the wonderful expat financial services companies.

When I was 16 one of my first jobs was telemarketing and I was so excited... then I was given a phone, a script, and a phone book and told to start calling.

What???!!!???

I didn't even make one call, got up and left.

And to this day I still enjoy cutting them off with a "no thank you" and hanging up while they're still talking.

Ah, that one.

Story time.
One of my friends (female) worked for the "Ministerio Publico" (Sort of like DA's office). They ended up catching a ring of "producers" of this material. She said the quantity was soo much, there was no way to watch it all. So what do they do? They put on a call on the police band for "porn watcher" (not specifing the type) volunteer... around 20 showed up. 3 of them decided to quit afterwards. So yes, possibly worst job ever.

I feel sorry for models who's faces appear in awkward, sensitive, or embarrassing advertising campaigns

Maybe they should have investigated the 17 who didn't quit a bit further?
