29 - The odd thing about this job is that they don't tell you what it is
you'll be taking pictures of. I mean they'll pay you $100 a day for it,
so it must be something important. Hrmmmm. Well it's their money.
opportunity consists of taking digital pictures of outside locations. It
does not require a set work schedule and you have the ability to earn
anywhere from $75-$100 per day. There is no expense on your part. You
will be supplied with the requisite camera and recording medium. We are
planning to begin staffing up around September 8, to a total of 15-20
individuals, and hope to be fully staffed in the area by mid September.
This position does require the following: You will be responsible for
attaining high quality digital images of assigned locations. You will be
required to complete approximately 1,500 pictures per week / 300
pictures per day, which is much easier to complete than it sounds. You
will be required to walk anywhere from 5 - 10 miles outside a day to
cover your assigned area. You will be required to work some weekends in
order to complete the assigned areas, but once again, the schedule is
flexible as long as the requisite number of pictures are taken. If you
don't like working outside and if you don't like a measure of
flexibility and personal responsibility then this isn't the opportunity

27 - This is the perfect job for some unemployed Canadian. You can make
money sitting home watching (and taping) TV. Plus if this chick, or guy,
is really as obsessed as the ad sounds, you can probably charge her, or
Carnation Street? Wanna make some easy money?
I am ADDICTED to Carnation Street. The episodes that appear on CBC daily
at 3pm or on Sundays from 8-10. But I am moving to the US and will not
be able to see it. I need someone to tape these episodes for me and mail
it to me. You will be compensated for this of course and the postage
will be paid by me. Easy money huh? Dedication is so necessary since I
cannot miss an episode. So until my 12 step plan for this addiction is
over, if you want to make some money email me what you are willing to do
this for on a monthly basis.

25 - I read this book once and they were talking about how Kudzu grows
totally out of control. They cut it back and cut it back and still it
grows. It's just like Jason in Friday the 13th. They keep killing him
and he keeps coming back. Come to think of it that might make kind of a
good horror movie. Attack of the Killer Kudzu. People fight valiantly
against the ever growing evil plant. Hrmmm. I wonder if anyone would see
you've ever worried about that becoming a reality then here's a job for
you. This job bears the distinction of being the only one I've ever
seen, that when using the term get your hands dirty, they really mean
get them dirty like with actual dirt. Apparently they also do poison ivy
control, but where's the romance in that. Although I guess in a way it
would still be saving the world, or at least saving the world from being
strong, hard-workers to help get rid of Kudzu. If you're interested and
don't mind getting your hands dirty, please send an email. Also see our
ad under poison ivy control.

22 - Ok this job is weird because he says he needs a miracle worker and
then says the job basically involves painting, lifting and sweeping and
stuff. I wonder what miracles he's looking for? Maybe his floor is
really dirty. He should probably get one of those cool sweeper things
they have on the late night infomercial. You know the one that works
like a broom but is so powerful it can pick up ball bearings.
thinking about applying but I refuse to work miracles for less
than $15 an hour.

21 - When I was in Rome, I took the wrong exit out of the metro
station and there in front of me was a parade. It seemed like a
relatively small neighborhood parade, except that they had fire eaters.
It was like the coolest thing I'd ever seen. I wonder if they got hired
from an ad like this.
funniest part of this ad is that it says you get paid according to skill
level. I mean if you're a fire eater, you should probably be at the
skill level where you're able to eat fire. It kind of seems like one of
those things you can either do or you can't. I wonder what the levels
would be? Maybe you would start with matches and work your way up?

18 - This ad cracks me up for so many reasons. I almost don't know where
to start. Okay a personal assistant is hiring you to do the crap jobs
they don't want and will pay you the princely sum of $8.00 an hour cash.
Then they say they don't want angry unemployed. Hi you're paying $8.00
an hour and you want some happy sunshiney person? I also like the way
they put weirdo in just close enough to angry-unemployed to make us all
sound like weirdos.
course my favorite part of the ad is where they request work related
experience. You know I have done misc. tasks before, it's right here on
my resume. Misspellings aren't mine.

Smart Chick Needed
We're seeking one smart, attractive, outgoing woman who wants to shine
shoes in Blah. First few weeks will be slow, but business is already

equal money. It also involves craftsmanship, people skills, street
smarts. The stand is an old, unused in this city and we're trying to
build up the business one customer at a time. The reason we'd like to
hire a woman is to bring in more male customers as well as earn the
trust of female ones.

- This cracks me up because it says must be a knowledgeable forklift
driver. What, do they think that someone's going to steal a forklift so
they can move this fountain for 50 bucks. I admit that market's bad, but
I don't think it's that bad. Bad grammar is the poster's.
forklift and 20 minutes?
I bought a fountain that is stacked on 3 pallets in my horses trailer.
The pieces are heavy, but were loaded with a small forklift. If you have
a forklift and could unload the 3 pallets from my trailer, I will give
you $50. It took about 20 minutes to load them originally. The heaviest
pallet is probably 400 lbs. I am located in Blah Please be a
knowledgeable forklift driver - I don't want the horse trailer or the
fountain damaging! Thanks!
- Sign me up. Get paid $120 a day to eat? The only thing missing from
this ad is whether or not a gym membership will be included. Wouldn't
you need one if all you did was eat and sit around and wait to eat
again. As usual errors are the poster's.

8 - Ok this is odd, but the thing that bugs me is the pay. If you have
to go buy the stuff to strip the paint it will probably cost you like
$10 so you'd only make $10. It just doesn't seem worth the trouble to
me strip paint from a bicycle frame...$20
have an old bike with peeling paint. I need it removed and the
aluminum (steel?) shined somehow so it won't rust. Shouldn't
take more than an hour.
I have no tools for this...You need to have them.
I've got $20 for the job.
7 - This is a funny job because this woman wants to pay someone to
deliver food from a specific restaurant to her at some hotel. I mean how
bad is she expecting the hotel food to be?
it's the restaurant, why not just take her husband there in a cab.
Breakfast food doesn't usually make very good take-out. Unless it's
bagels or donuts or stuff like that. This person says, name your price.
I wonder if I offered to do it for $1 million, if they'd say yes.

6 - Now this would be kind of a cool job. The only problem is if these
kittens are so fabulously wonderful, wouldn't it be hard to give them up
when they had to go back. Then you could sue for custody just like that
chick on Judge Judy. Not that I watch Judge Judy okay, so maybe I
watched it once. Maybe it was the People's Court.
there might be one other problem, some neurotic woman showing up at your
house every five minutes to see her cats. She would probably have to
kitty proof your house first. I'm not sure how much you'd have to pay me
to put up with that. (Misspellings are the fault of the cat lady).

Will Need Temporary Foster Home When We Relocate
Cat lover(s) with good/safe home needed. Temporary. We are relocating to
Blah area in Mid September--possibly November-- and will need a
temporary foster home for two cats until we find a permanent home:
Sophie, a dainty, female lilac point siamese (very needy and
affectionate) and Pogo, a male, chubby, white, siamese mix. Will also
need cat sitting when we are out of town.
Would want to visit and cuddle my babies. I am very neurotic and anxious
about this move. I adore these animals and would be devastated if
anything happened to them.
Compensation: To be arranged
5 - I think this job should pay way more than $10. I mean depending on
how awful this person is, you could really be putting your life on the
line. I speak from experience having been quite dangerous myself when I
was learning to drive. Of course now I'm an excellent driver.
Teach me to
41-year old who has never learned to drive looking for a PATIENT,
LICENSED and EXPERIENCED driver to teach me to drive. Driving schools

Compensation: $10.00 per hour
4 - Now this is a very odd job. But hey who could resist the urge to
dress up like Boy George and belt out his famous eighties tune, wasn't
it about salamanders or something. Well, to be honest, I'm pretty
sure I could.
how they specifically ask for a person without shame. Wouldn't it be
more fitting to ask for someone without dignity? I also like the fact
that they say 'you know I'll pay you.' How is some desperate job seeker
really going to know that.
without Shame needed for practical joke
I'm looking to play a practical joke on a friend that would involve
someone dressing up as a corny singer from the 1980's and delivering a
singing telegram. We can work together on who you'd be and what you'd
sing. I'm thinking Boy George, Robert Smith, or someone
distinct-looking, but it depends on what you look like. Delivery date
would be around Aug. 10. No experience necessary. I'd do this myself but
I live too far away. Come on, it'll be fun. And, you know, I'll pay you.
1 - Now this would be a cool job. You would have the chance to drive all
over Europe with a rock band of sorts. Now that might be a cool way to

cost. My only question is how it could be a part time job? (As always
misspellings are their's)
