I recently found a thread on the internet and it was quite astounding to see how many so-called ‘useless’ jobs were listed. Here is a list of 10 of the most useless jobs from the user’s opinions.
One user asks if anyone has seen ‘these guys’ or whether it is just an ‘old movies thing?’
Another reader joked: “I’m so old I remember when they had these in department stores. Whilst shopping with my grandma one day we got in an elevator and the attendant asked if we wanted the second floor. My grandma replies, “Why yes, how did you know?” He says, “ma’am, there’s only two floors, and we’re currently on the first one.”
It does seem a bit odd nowadays to have someone in the lift just pressing buttons all day long. Perhaps it is more for safety and security than anything else.
Many people view telemarketer calls as a nuisance. Not many see the value of their calls anymore. The following comment got upvoted over one thousand times
“I’m sure that most people have received those unwanted spam calls from telemarketers but the question is whether anyone actually purchases anything from them. Nowadays you can block those nuisance calls but one user suggests that ‘the older generation’ may purchase something from them whilst everyone else gets annoyed with receiving them.”
One reader says that they don’t even answer their phone when it rings so a telemarketer has no chance of the call being connected.
What may seem like a pointless job, one reader discussed how they have had one in their building for “13+ years now and is pretty useless.” There’s even mention of how much TV the security guard watches and how little they do to check who is entering and exiting the premises. But another reader raises the point that they are more of a deterrent than anything else. Perhaps just having them in place will make potential criminals think twice about doing anything.
Who’d have thought it? But yes, they do exist. One user says that they don’t need a pet medium anyway as they know exactly what their dog is thinking most of the time as he either wants “what they are eating” or he wants them to ‘throw the ball’. What a wonderful life it is to be a dog with no care in the world.
The youth of today aspire to be ‘instafamous’ and they can literally influence people to do all sorts of things. One user questions their usefulness and ‘’why people would buy something promoted by influencers or YouTubers.’’ One user relates and explains how they work in the industry and that they deal with agencies who have “a sole business model that is based on influencer-based marketing,’’ so it is real.
Other users suggest influencers are just a marketing ploy and is a way to generate sales. Maybe there is a touch of the green-eyed monster as most people would secretly like to be influencers and have an impact on others.
Lifeguard at Olympics Pool Events
One must wonder if an Olympic swimmer like Michael Phelps would ever need saving! And yet there are always lifeguards hired for the Olympics.
It must be seriously boring to sit and watch at the poolside for hours on end. Like the security guard though, perhaps it is more precautionary than anything else. Readers seem to think that “anything can happen” so it is a bit of a failsafe. Better to have a designated person as a lifeguard than anyone else who may try to intervene and cause a chaotic scene of many people being involved.
One user says that a car salesman is useless as they ‘’don’t know anything about the cars’’ which has been upvoted by users 24 times. It seems that most people cannot understand why they are needed when cars can be bought from factories. With technology developing, it could be a consideration for the future.
Perhaps a job that is not seen as frequently now but one user seems to be rather annoyed at ‘’somebody in there pulling paper towels out the dispenser’’ and then they have to ‘‘tip them.’’ Another user says that they can ‘’stop unwanted behaviour in the bathroom and call for help if there is a medical emergency.’’ Other users mention different ‘perfumes’ and ‘handy freebies’ handed out.
Users seem begrudged to pay such exorbitant amounts for health insurance when they are unlikely to ever need a payout. Many users support these comments that it is just a money-making enterprise and it is useless.
These were popular but one user wonders why they are not mentioned as a useless job. They wonder whether anyone was ‘able to read it’ or whether they ‘went to the business to buy something because of it’. The mind literally boggles.
