25 Everyday Professions That Are Privy To It All

Everyone who’s ever had a job probably has a good story or “horror story” from said job, but some professions take it above and beyond as far as what secrets they’re privy to. In some cases, the profession depends upon a client sharing their past or pouring their heart out; in other places, it seems as if people assume since a person is on shift or hired by them, they’re there to take any abuse or information clients would like to throw at them (nope). Still, some professions just lend themselves to having clients who really need your skills but have no idea what you actually…do. If you are or have been in one of these jobs, we salute you. If you haven’t, read on and learn about 25 Everyday Professions That Are Privy To It All.


Food servers sometimes get to hear the best and worst of humanity and can overhear basically anything you say at the table. Unfortunately, a large part of the general public tends to think that "server" translates to "servant." Remember folks, a person who is not nice to the waitstaff is not a nice person.

Massage Therapists are professionals, and while it only takes a little bit of schooling to become a licensed massage therapist, it takes years of experience to become a truly good one (and a good massage therapist is worth their weight in gold). Still, some people think it's totally cool to ask them about sexual favors or creepily repeat how "good they are with their hands." Just so we're all very clear, there are exactly zero circumstances in which this is acceptable, even as a joke. You will henceforth and forever be remembered as a "creepy" client.

Kindergarten and Elementary School Teachers are a special breed. They're responsible for instilling some pretty important social and educational skills into the next generation, like you can't pick your friend's nose even if she says it's okay. Yet they're also privy to the world as seen through the eyes of children. Children who are just learning to express themselves. Things like “I can’t read right now. I have heartburn.”

Graphic Design is a pretty misunderstood skill set by the general public, and as such, Graphic Designers often aren't respected as professional artists or are given requests that are somewhat outrageous (or worse, completely vague). No, they can't just do something exactly like someone else already did; they can't just "photoshop it"; and they can't use a random photo off your facebook or google, or do anything "real quick." Also, anyone that EVER implies that a graphic designer or any other artist should charge less or work for free for "the exposure," well, let's just say they're horrible or clearly just don't get it. Yet you'd probably be surprised how often any professional creative hears this.

By the time most people get to an Assisted Living Facility, they're too old to give a crap what anyone thinks or overhears. Nurses and Medical Assistants in these facilities always have stories. Sometimes they're nice stories from their clients about the adventures they used to have when they were younger. Than then there are...the other stories. We'll just leave those to your imagination.
