The Ask Reddit threads rarely fail to deliver, and the site may have even topped itself with an organized inquiry of people who work with other people’s bodies. To be certain, some of the worst jobs in the world involve handling other people’s bodies. Morticians, doctors, and nurses all see some sh*t on a regular basis. One has to be truly dedicated to the art of helping people to work in the medical field, especially when it comes to nurses and nurse techs, who aren’t obviously paid as well as surgeons and the like.
Aestheticians, waxers, and body piercers may also eventually regret their choice of professions once they realize not all clientele “cleans up” as well as the next bunch. All of these jobs come to mind when dreaming up possibilities for gross-out potential at work. To put it simply, the human body can be revolting.

This story from a physical trainer qualifies through the sheer unexpected factor.
Please clean your belly buttons before heading in for a medical procedure. Seriously, it’s an easy, accessible job.
