Daily Prompt Nightmare Job. In honor of Labor Day in North America, tell us what’s the one job you could never imagine yourself doing.
Your job is to get up before dawn every morning and gather human waste from the huts in the village. You will find baskets, full of excrement, set outside the door of each hut. You will dump the contents into a larger basket which you balance on your head as you walk from hut to hut. When the larger basket is full you will dump it at the designated area far from the village, near the river.
You will do this job every day for the rest of your life. There is no opportunity for advancement. You may not resign. You will not be paid well.
You are untouchable, the lowest caste.
Here’s your basket.
