Money talks, and its persuasive tone gets people to perform all kinds of strange things all in the name of the hustle.
Because money makes the world go around, there exists no shortage of strange ways people make money. While not necessarily the worst jobs in the world, the weird things people do for money usually involve less-than-ideal job requirements such as imbibing a gross substance, mild vandalism, and cleaning up people's bodily messes. Admittedly, some of the worst ways people make money qualify as dares rather than jobs, but hey, that's an untaxed business transaction right there.
Redditors went about sharing the stupidest things people did for money, and they do not fail to disappoint. Just like the strangest celebrity jobs, the weird ways people make money serve to remind everyone how far you've come. You can't control the weather, but with a weird side hustle you can always make it rain.
The Money Went Towards A Medical Test

All That White Stuff
From Redditor /u/burstabcess:
"Used to help my dad's mate clean cars on weekends. He did the exterior, I did interior. One day I went inside a car and it looked like it had been snowing. In some places it was about five centimeters thick, but it was completely covering the whole car. I had no idea what it could be, so I was cleaning and cleaning, doing a very thorough job. When I was finally done, the owner appeared. He was morbidly obese and covered in scaly flakes of skin all over his body. I was inhaling that stuff. I vomited into the gutter and decided that this was the worst thing I had ever done for money."80164Is this crazy?

Moving Pills At An Early Age
From Redditor /u/aninnymouseyall:
"When I was 13, I started stealing my mom's old prescription pills. She never took her meds and also had lots leftover from previous surgeries. I started selling the extras to make a little extra money to buy my own drugs and the like.
Before I knew it someone was telling me I had to meet this guy because if I really wanted to move my sh*t, he was the guy to talk to. He was some 30-year-old guy in a nice-*ss house. He basically used me as a runner for him, but he'd give me a lovely cash bonus if I ever brought him any Valium. Apparently he was always looking for it, and that was something I took from my mom a lot.
It wasn't until years later that I realized how f*cked up it was. This guy was using kids to sell a large amount of prescription pills. He would tell us to always carry backpacks, never purses, no make up allowed ever and once or twice he told me to wear my hair up in pony tails. He knew that the younger we looked, the less likely we were to get searched.
I got jumped once and they took all my stuff. I had to go into random buildings and make transactions with creepy older people. All for a pathetic cut, a cut he knew he could get away with because I was 13 and all I wanted was some weed and some pills."38343Is this crazy?
