This Week’s Weird Jobs

With coins, counting, primitive ladders, and pot, this week’s weird jobs might actually make a good role-playing game:

1. Virginia: Primitive Barn Ladders

Looking for someone local that can make primitive looking/distressed ladders for home decor use.
Out of barn wood ideally or reclaimed wood.

My retail prices are rather low so your cost to me would have to be pretty fair….my price ranges from $2 – $350 max.

If you have a barn full of old distressed ladders, you need to get rid of them anyway, and you charge $350 a pop, this could be your dream job.

2. Free lance editors needed

I have a job with some unique stories of approximately 500-800 words to edit.

Professional editors need not apply. This is for free lance people who love to write.

I am willing to pay $10.00/story for editing and if you are good at the job, you will keep getting stories.

Major FAIL if you apply for the job as a “free lancer.”

3. CA: Not your average Day Job :)

Medical Marijuana Collective is now hiring friendly faces and shining personalities to assist patients in obtaining quality medication. Personality and “uummph” is a big deal, as part of your role is to make our patients leave feeling like they made a new friend.

I think they meant “oomph,” not “uummph,” which is usually the sound associated with getting up off the couch after a 4-hour bong session.

4. Las Vegas: Retail Numismatist

Do you like old coins? Do you collect old coins or currency? Would you like to earn a living from your hobby? Growing Coin Shop with multiple locations is seeking a numismatist (or budding numismatist) with a stable job history to join our team as a retail associate. If this is you, please include a resume and cover letter explaining why you would be the ideal person to join us.

Numismatist has to be one of the best arcane job titles out there.


Inventory counters needed, permanent part-time positions available. No experience needed, will train. Compensation: 8.40 per hour

You’ll know you’re burned out when you start counting the steps to your house, items in the pantry, and number of times your spouse has told you to stop counting.

Happy Friday!
