Are you getting discouraged with the current job market? Are you tired of working 2-3 part-time jobs, in order to make ends meet? Your days are long and hard. Then, at the end of the month, you still have nothing to show for it, except a stack of bills. If this describes you, it’s time to cheer up and consider checking into some different, often strange, inevitably weird occupations that might make going to work a little more exciting, or at least interesting.
Drinking on the Job
In most cases, if the boss caught you drinking on the job, you would be out the door in a flash. Your personal belonging would be dropped off at your house, or you could come pick them up after office hours.
However, you might have a job that would get you fired, if the boss caught you NOT drinking on the job. If you are a whiskey ambassador, it’s your responsibility to select only the best whiskey and teach your clients how to do the same.
But, before you can test whiskey, you need two things:
- Proof you are over 21
- The local cab company on speed dial
Dreams can come True
Do you remember the old television show called Fantasy Island? If you are curious, you can watch some of the old episodes on the Internet. Anyway, the premise was simple. People came to the island to have their dreams or fantasies enacted. Of course, Mr. Rork always had a certain trace of magic to make sure the clients got exactly what they paid for, and more.
Obviously a work of fiction, it was fun to see what fantasy each client wanted fulfilled. But, who would have ever imagined that you could make good money doing the same thing for real. If you want to make dreams come true, you could always become a fantasy broker.
Lost and Found
If you were ever a fan of nature series and always dreamed of exploring the oceans, then you might like this job. Although it isn’t on the grand scale of Jacque Cousteau, you could be outside and swimming in the ocean any time the weather was agreeable.
You could be a golf ball diver. If you have ever enjoyed the sport, then you know how often balls end up out of bounds and in the water. Most of those balls are perfectly good; but, you don’t want them cluttering up the ocean. So, somebody has to go after them, clean them up, and get them ready for resale as pre-owned golf balls. You can always pretend you are searching for buried treasure. Ahoy matie!
