We know that it's morally right, but we don't want to do it. Luckily, they're always there to take one for the team.

3. Or that person that doesn't make you feel like a weirdo when you accidentally fall asleep on them on the train

Their encyclopaedic knowledge of the roads, infinite memory and unflappable demeanour makes them basically a super-human.

9. The barista who always remembers your name and you coffee order

Think about how many people they see each day - and they take the time to make you feel special and your day a little bit nicer. If they especially like you, they'll spell your name incorrectly on the cup - so we've heard.

15. Pizza delivery guys

Come rain, hail, sleet or snow they'll be there in 30 minutes or less. Plus, it must be really upsetting getting to smell pizza all day and not eat it.

17. Shop assistants who go out of their way to help you

Because you know that if you were in their place, you'd pretend to go to the stockroom and have a nap.

19. Rubbish collectors

When you have a bad day at work, you can have a moan and a coffee. When they have a bad day, they still have to scoop rubbish.
