The Worst Job in Medieval Times
Of all the worst jobs there are in medieval times, the fuller is probably the worst job there is. Imagine, submerging your feet in people's urine everyday for seven or eight hours straight without a break. Just thinking of it makes me nauseous. Urine is seriously a repulsive pungent smell; the stench is unbearable and also has negative lasting effect on people's health. This job could mean getting psychological issues, aside from the physical trauma inflicted upon the feet, because you are literally stomping on "waste" as a job. Wouldn't people consider it base of you? Won't people ignore and persecute you? Despite the fact that the fuller was immensely substantial to people, I don't think that anyone would actually respect them for their job. I wouldn't volunteer for this job for anything in the world.
