Quick — what's the worst, most mind-numbing, humiliating, horrendous, horrific job you can think of?

They're all here. The worst jobs in the world. Firsthand accounts of one hundred horrible jobs guaranteed to make you groan, laugh, and maybe, just maybe help you feel a teensy bit better about your own place in the rat race. Painstakingly assembled by the geniuses behind the British humor magazine The Idler, this collection includes the gloriously gory details of such occupations as: hospital launderette, gas station worker, weed sprayer, bank teller, janitor's assistant, and telemarketer.

It's a hilarious romp through the stinky cesspool of employment hell, with helpful commentary from those who speak of crap jobs from hard-won personal experience. So curl up with this guide and be grateful for the job you have...or grab the want ads now!


From one of the geniuses behind "The Idler" comes a hysterical compendium of people who do the the most humiliating, soul-destroying, immoral, and crappiest jobs out there.

This book alters one's perspective on what it takes to be listed as a "crap job". I hope I never get that desperate for employment!
