no gators in Pittsburgh either. Deer are the worst we have here- watch if you're out in the country after Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania
Be Thankful !
You dont have Alligators.

The Aussies have to deal with kangaroos.

Imagine something that size Leaping into the road in front of your car at 60 m.p.h. !

Animal Masturbator
I didn’t believe it either, but this is a legitimate job. There are times when semen needs to be collected from an animal for fertilisation or a study. This is where the animal masturbator comes in; their role is to extract sperm from the animal, either manually or with an electric stimulator.

If you knew what movers earn in a day you'd want to get in shape.
Depends on the move, types of items moved, distance to drop, yada.

Piano movers can make bank. But, how often do people need a piano moved.

Regular furniture guys might make $100 for half a day of work.

Porta-shitter cleaner is the worst job in the world, period.

Window washer is monotonous, tedious. Hate it.

If youre doing it hanging on a spyder on a 50 story building . . . . .
Window washing could be fun.

And on a sad note . . . while looking up correct spelling for single cable suspension workseat called " spyder"

I just learned the man who delighted viewers internationally and made national news for dressing up as Spiderman while washing windows at a Childrens Hospital . . .
Has been sentenced to 105 years for Child Pornography !

Jarrat Turner of Tennesee.

I know movers in LA who make $200 per day moving stuff from LA to Santa Barbara and farther up north.

Here's a few bad jobs I've had:

Repo tow truck driver.
Kennel cleaner at dog day camp.
Working with mentally @@@@@@ed adults (first time they told me I'd be wiping asses I left)
McDonald's drive thru
Starbucks drive thru
Truck driver
Walmart
Driving an ice cream van. Did that for one day.
Bottle redemption center. Smelled and was very sticky.
Data entry for a logistics company.
I've had so many jobs I could go on all day about it.

Crime Scene Tech.
The actual job function is to go into a crime scene, home, field, wherever, and collect the dead bodies, wrap them in a body bag, and drive them to the morgue, crematorium, wherever. Low man on the totem poles gets to hose down and clean the van at the end of the shift.

I worked for a production company as a freelance carpenter/event worker. No overtime. 70+ hour weeks. A cheap ass company trying to nickel and dime every minute. I was young and fit but 70+ hour weeks, being on your feet 16-20 hours a day, using sanders, planers, drills for hours on end will put a lot of stress on the body, especially joints and tendons.

I've also loaded airplanes. 5' ceiling and I srand about 6'1". Playing Tetris in the cargo area with no air circulation for hours and then suddenly you hear "unload this one it can't fly today". There's sweating, then there is turning on the faucet.

So I suppose I have done worse

It depends on many factors. I see most people are only caring about money. In terms of having peace of mind, if you like ridesharing lots of professional jobs may make you feel less happy; unless you love your profession enough to handle the fierce competition; any job where you have freedom or hours and nobody controls your time is psychologically better than jobs that require minimum hours and especially deadlines. But of course the pay is important especially if you have lots of expenses

Pay is important, especially important, regardless of expenses.

That is probably one of the more type before you think lines I’ve read on the web.

Pay is important because it gives you “money” which in turn gives you freedom and the ability to choose.

Even if you’re happy and content eating $.50 buns and drinking water for the rest of your life—you can’t control what may or may not happen to you. You may incur some sort of medical condition that requires medication to control. It may require hospitalization. Etc etc. let’s look at this for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/personalfinance/comments/9m70dx/mom_has_no_insurance_and_broke_her_leg/?st=JMZ7D5EX&sh=7d56bcda


People with a huge salary and even bigger savings still continue to “slave away” as some would put it, working the 9-5 with no “freedom” because they are thinking ahead. What if they wanted to retire early at 50? A dentist did that...sold his practice for a little under 2 mil and now he has the freedom to do whatever he wants because he can eat all the fifty cent buns he wants, break his leg and not worry about insurance because he’s stockpiled away enough money to cover a few broken bones.

So yes, pay is important. Ask any driver who wants the rates to be raised. I suppose there may be one or two whose happy with the rates as they currently are. But I bet if you ask, a good deal would like the “pay” to be raised to more than a $1/mile, possibly back to $2,2.75/mile.
