Almost everyone has had at least one job they hated with a passion. Sadly, the scramble for survival has launched many of us into workplaces we wouldn't wish on our worst enemies, but in many cases you don't know how bad it is until you've worked there awhile.
However, there are some workplaces that are so horrible you can see spot the dirty laundry during your first day on the job (whether literally or figuratively). When possible, sometimes the best thing you can do for your mental health is walk away from a job you can already tell will kill your soul and potentially put you in harm's way.
In a popular Reddit thread, people shared the jobs they quit on the first day, and it's safe to say going penniless is still a safer option than some of the gigs out there.
