Whether you’re an aspiring detective or just naturally curious, sometimes it’s quite hard to not notice things. Seemingly innocuous details pop out of nowhere and you can’t help yourself but wonder what they're hiding.

A few days ago, user, crustpad, raised a question that prompted people to list two professions that, on their own, are perfectly fine, but if you do both, they become suspicious. “What two jobs are fine on their own but suspicious if you work both of them?” they asked, and their call was answered by nearly 38k redditors.

As we scroll down and check out the answers these folks gave, you may find yourself nodding your head in agreement. Got any other suspect professions in mind?
