When you meander through the maze of college grounds, there’s a high chance of encountering professors still rocking flower-power shirts of yesteryears.

Machinists – The Precise Perfectionists
Dive into the realm of machinists, and you’re thrust into a world ruled by the millimeter. Their lives revolve around gears, levers, and a perpetual chase for perfection.

They’d be talking about a cat up a tree like it’s a blockbuster thriller!
Therapists with Theories – Analyzing Every Atom

Security Guards – The Ever-Watchful Owls
Those guards, especially the ones patrolling malls, seem like they’ve downed a dozen energy drinks.

It’s as if you’ve just triggered a national crisis.
Recruiters – Persistent Pursuers
Evasive maneuvers don’t work on these people because they’re the bloodhounds of the corporate world. Duck their calls, and they pop up in your LinkedIn DMs. Hide in your home?

Hair Stylists – Scissors, Stories, and Sass
Step into their salon chair, and it isn’t just about getting a haircut. It’s a ticket to drama-filled tales, spicy gossip, and unsolicited life advice.

Nurses – Hospitals’ Real MVPs, or Are They?
Nurses are indeed the frontline warriors, but not all wear their capes gracefully. Some let the power get to their heads, adopting a toxic “know-it-all” attitude.

Real Estate Agents – Masters of Illusion
Oh, the tales you’d hear! An “airy ambiance” often translates to a window overlooking a brick wall.

MLM Gurus – Kings and Queens of Hype
Their zest might be infectious, but so is their toxicity. Behind the shimmering façade lie tales of manipulated recruits and broken dreams.

Lawyers – Masters of the Grey Zone
Their eloquence? Unmatched. Their ethics? Often questionable. Lawyers can twist any narrative to suit their ends. For some of them, it’s never about the truth. It’s about winning, no matter the cost. Got a story that paints you in a bad light? With the right amount of money and a lawyer with flexible morals, it could become a tale of your heroics.
