[grownupfilter] What is the most unique job you've ever heard of - the one that made you say, "Damn, if I wasn't 5 years away from retiring, I'd TOTALLY do _________!"
It's time I growed up a little. Since I've spent my entire working career to date in stupid, boring environments that do not encourage growth of any kind, I now want a fun (and "different") career
that is going to last me for the next 10 to 20 years and beyond. Give me your suggestions for great, fun, crazy careers.
My current job: so boring and lackluster that I get my tasks done in 10 minutes and spend the next few hours staring at my desk, as email and internet are strictly forbidden - like as in, I got screamed at on my first day for launching Outlook to see if I had a work email. So I stare or write until I'm given another task. Lather, rinse, repeat.
The rules are: a)
you're not pulling it out of your ass - it's a REAL job (or field, at least) that I can find information on and b)
you have some sort of reference ("my aunt's friend does this" or "I saw a doc on A&E about this very job!")
. It's ok if schooling is needed - I'm currently looking at local and online classes to take in my spare time
Oh, and fast food, cocktail waitressing, stripping, web design, freelance writing, modeling, blackjack dealing and internet porn star are all out. I've already done those. =)
Now, if you'll excuse me, my lunch break is over and I have to go back to
staring at a desk for the remainder of my day
