July Odd Jobs


July 31 - Now this is a cool job. You could save lives and stuff. Just think you  could be someone's hero. Racing through the streets on a mission to save a life. Heck I might even apply. 

As far as the reliability being a must thing, well Duh!


Blah City based transplant team looking for small van driver with excellent driving record. (Van provided.) Must be able to respond to Blah area within 30 minutes. Full-time work, 10 days off per month, base  on-call salary plus extra pay when you drive. Ideal for night owls, reliability a must. Average earnings 30K+/yr. Medical benefits.

July 30 - Headed for Amsterdam? This job's for you. As always the misspelling is the poster's.

Driver wanted

Driver wanted - anybody travelling to Netherlands/Amsterdam in the quite near future and able to carry 2 chairs and a table - all very light - chairs stacking - prepared to pay reasonable amount

July 29 -I guess I understand why you have to have a really good smile to get this job, but why do you have to be 'very attractive'? Lots of less attractive people have nice smiles. By the way I hope this person's smile is better than their spelling abilities - obviously the misspelling is not mine. Oh and you have to wear a cap. What like Little Bo Peep?

High Energy Sampling Spokes Model

Job requirements: This is a promotion to hand out a lot of toothpaste samples quickly at movie theaters. I need only the most energetic and organized folks. You must be very attractive and outgoing and have an amazing smile and great attitude. Promotion experieince is a must. The details are below.

July 28 - This ad was really long so I cut it down a bit, but this looks like kind of a cool job. You could be the head of security for an actual art museum. The only drawbacks I can see is that it could be dangerous if you came up against any super smart art thieves (who if movies have taught me anything - and I think they have- will have snooty English accents) Also you might not get tons of respect because the only time they show museum security people on TV is when they're being outsmarted by the snooty English thieves mentioned above.

July 25 - This is pretty much what the whole odd jobs thing is. I want someone to do everything. Not only that, you're expected to be punctual AND nice. Yeah they'll find someone. But come on, a resume AND Checkable References. You mean they would actually call my references. Well in that case, never mind.

  July 21 - This isn't really a job, but when you're out of work any way to make money right. This kind of annoys me though for two reasons. One, it's a slap in the face to broke single people everywhere. And two, it would probably cost more than $25 to get most men to sit in a room for two hours and talk about their relationship. Unless there was beer involved I guess.  And three, (yes I know I said there were only two but what are you gonna do, sue me?) I think the two people have to split the $25.


The Psychology Department at Break Up U is currently recruiting couples who dating exclusively for participation in a two-hour study. A participating couple will receive $25 and learn general relationship information. For more information about the study, please e-mail 

 18 - I didn't know you could even get a job doing this anymore. I think that would be cool. I would totally do this except I have two left feet and so, consequently, no experience whatsoever. Oh wait you don't need experience. If only I were coordinated at all.

Must be available afternoons and evenings M-F for position.  Email your name to reserve your spot 


July 17 - Why do they need a picture for this job? Are they only interested in the opinions of attractive people, or are they just looking for a date? Maybe they think the ugly people won't have enough dating experience. (misspelling is theirs)

Blah Blah research is conducting a cosumer research study for a publishing client. We are interested in interviewing single women aged 25 - 35 in regard to dating, relationships and sexuality.

July 15 - Can you imagine sitting around waiting for some horrible disaster to happen so you can work. Talk about the guilt. While the rest of the world is hoping bad things won't happen you've got your fingers crossed they will. Now that's asking for some bad karma.

July 14 - Umm I don't know about this. I mean $30 to take a video of your feet and he never actually says what he'll use the video for. Money is money I guess, but I think I'd pass on this.

Foot Models needed

Hi. I am a nail artist & reflexologist looking for foot models who would like to have free nail art pedicures & reflexology/foot massage and waxing if needed. I am also offering $30 per half-hour video shoot session.  If this is an arrangement you would be interested in, I would love to hear from you. 

July 13 - One day when I called the temp agency to check in they offered me a job standing on the side of the freeway for eight hours (four hours in the morning and four at night) counting the cars that went by. I thought they had some fancy gadget for that. Apparently that gadget was me. Sadly I had a time conflict and was forced to turn down their offer.
