At one time or another, we've all had jobs that were more than likely less pleasant than others. However, are there some that outweigh others so much so that they made the list?

5. Roadkill Collector

Imagine in the midst of hot summer days having the grueling task of disposing of animals struck or killed by vehicles on the road aka roadkill. Left with not knowing how long the animal (or carcass) has been lying on the road, now baked so the stench faced with is strong enough to make one hurl all while playing "frogger" with oncoming traffic!

4. Farm Slurry Pit Cleaner

Most dairy farms have a large (slurry) pit the cattle manure is scrapped into.  This is to keep a cleaner and more hygienic environment for the cattle.  But let's be real.  Eventually, those pits need to be cleaned out and at times repaired.  Decomposition of the sludge generates gases such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and methane.  So this presents obvious risks.  But sometimes to make it number 1 you need to be in the business of number 2.

3. Oil Rig Deck Hand

We love our oil field brothers and sisters.  Oil and gas is one of North Dakota's largest industries and we are darned proud of it.  But let's be real.  These men and women are working in some of the most dangerous environments possible along with the harshest climates.  Thank you for what you do.  But we know that the majority of us can't work under those conditions.

2. Bill, Debt or Tax Collector

Think about it you are a nice person that people tend to genuinely hate. What kid ever grows up saying, "...someday I want to be a bill collector!" The people must call you when you haven't paid your bills, usually over a long period. Since many times they are paid for their success, this leaves these people to harass and call in the middle of the night.

1. Telemarketer

With a less than desirable salary, the telemarketer is typically paid to receive endless abuse and constant hang-ups as a result... Can get to be quite demoralizing! Cold calls to the general public are hard enough!
