I’ve had some really ridiculous jobs in my day. There was the one where I almost met George Clooney while hocking imitation designer perfumes. Almost is key. And there have been many others including the one I write about in my post at Aiming Low entitled, The Dangers of Dialing for Dollars. Yes, I was one of those annoying people that call you during dinner and try to get you to do a survey over the phone.
Other weird jobs have included:
- Being a personal assistant. It’s a little strange to buy socks for someone who is too important to buy them for themselves. Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode.
- Stuffing plastic bags with rolls of wrapping paper.
- Listening to computer-generated audio and approving whether it was pronouncing the names of bands, musicians, or album names correctly.
- Collating print-outs and turning them into manuals. You’d think they’d have a machine for that…oh, wait they do! I was probably cheaper than the machine.
My current fulltime gig is the dirtiest job I’ve ever had. Who knew I would graduate summa cum laude from college and end up wiping butts, feeding, doing laundry, and being in charge of keeping two small lovable tyrants alive? Nothing in college prepared me for this. The patience and time-management skills needed for parenting didn’t come with my diploma.
What weird jobs have you had?
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
