When you're going through your teenage years, through university and sometimes even later on in life, you might have to work at a place that isn't exactly your dream job. But a wage is a wage, and everyone has to earn money somehow, whether they like their job or not.
So, it was understandable that people on social media tore Grant Coulson a new one when he claimed that he is too famous to get a job after appearing on one episode of the Geordie Shore spin off show Super Shore and a naked dating programme called Undressed.
The 25-year-old was quizzed why the NHS should pay for him to get a new set of teeth.

The hosts offered a bunch of options for him to pursue, one of which was working in a fish shop. Grant turned that option down because he said he doesn't like fish, but later added: "They gave us a list of jobs do on air. I felt like they were taking the mick out of me. I said, 'I'm not working in a fucking fish shop'.
"It's not that there's anything wrong with working in a fish shop, but I wouldn't do it. It's degrading."
Well it seems like that public outburst has caused someone to leave dead fish on his brand-new Mercedes.
He picked up the red, pricey vehicle after using the £2,000 fee from appearing on This Morning to put a down payment on it. Most people get a few months to enjoy that fresh leather smell, however it only took a few days for Grant to be getting a whiff of something very different.
The modelling hopeful said: "I woke up to find it covered in fish and fish guts. I looked out of my window and I couldn't quite make out what it was.
"I have no idea who put it on there. A lot of people in my local area were making comments about my appearance on TV and lots of people do know where I live.
"I imagine it's someone in my local area.
"At first, I was a bit pissed off, but then I thought it hasn't damaged my car. I did see the funny side after."
He's annoyed at the prospect of forking out at least £100 to get the smell out and the car back to normal. But at least he's seeing the funny side of the situation.
