What are some weird jobs you had?

I just got a call from one I applied to a few weeks back. It's a porn store - adult video, what have you. It's got arcades. Thank goodness I don't have to clean those booths (a separate cleaning crew does that).

Back then, I figured, easy work, good pay, flexible schedule, (this is Vegas after all) and then I realized"What was I thinking?"

Anyway, should I report for work?

Depends, did you fill the requirement for existing STD's?



Weirdest job, hmm.....sweep carpet when i was a waiter. Vacuum's were too loud.

HiLo driver. Unloaded and reloaded freight for a cartage company. Cold as hell in the winter and hotter then scarlett Johanasens ass in the summer. Then there were the union guys harrassing you because you were a college boy.

Tennis monkey at a high brow tennis club. Met some really nice people and some real asses. One lady would hand me keys to her Jag and make me go on errands while I was supposed to be cleaning and maintaining the club. Thats was very profitable.

ETA: report to work, you'll get to meet some interesting people I bet.

I was a wildlife ranger in Australia.

An aquaintance had a kooky job though. she had to put on one of those fake "pregnancy bellies" that made her look like she was 8 months pregnant. She then went to bars and asked for very alcoholic drinks.

It was a statistical analysis company and she had to report back weird looks, bartenders refusing her (yes, it is their discretion under the law), any comments thrown by patrons...

Sounded like a cool job

Secretary at a bail bonds office when I was 18. Very freaky owners...quit after 3 days.

Porn store sounds right up your alley. Probably meet some funny characters.

Weird jobs....well, a couple of times as a nurse, my job was to dig the crap outta some old buttholes.
One time it was just looking at me so I just graabed hold of it and pulled it out.
I do not feel bad now when I tell someone else to do it.

Had a job as a rectum stretcher once.

You can open a rectum up to six feet.

Last summer I did some work for an outfit called Turtles Deluxe. I drove turtles around, both live and frozen, to seafood markets, the airport cargo terminal and from farmers/watermen to the processing plant. It wasn't that weird, as most of what I did was drive the truck and unload the cargo (which sometimes entailed handling loose alligator snappers), but the fact that it was turles was strange. but, it was a nice little side gig, and I bought my Springfield XD9 Tactical with most of the proceeds. I still occasionally refer to it as my Turtle Gun.

Busy most of the year. But slow in the summer.
I'm a salary guy. So slow in the summer = prime range time.

not exactly wierd but i was a driller/machinery opperator for a blasting company (dynamite )
Link Posted: 2/12/2006 6:42:28 PM EDT
i repo'd mobile homes (yes its a real job)
got paid something in the neighborhood of 1200-2500 a week depending on how many jobs we did. unfortunatly when the "migrant labor season" ends they fire the anglos and hire cheaper workers.

i also did cars, but the money was nowhere as good, and car owners don't get moved away first,,,nothing like being shot at by some geeked out asswipe methhead who doesn't wanna pay on his camero.

Weirdest job for me was working armored transport for two different companies (not at once). The job is completely different according to company. And you really get to learn what morons the public can be.

Then I took the dirt, turned it into mud with dionized water, and lab techs did various tests on it.

When I was 19, I had a job which I unloaded vehicles from train rail cars. Mostly new Toyotas, Mitsubishis, and sometimes Jags. Hotter than Hell in the summer, cold as a well diggers ass in winter.
