New Career Ideas

Updated on September 20, 2009

Hmmm..... let me think......

If I could do anything I want to for a living....

I was recently out of work, and started getting suggestions from friends about new career paths. That got me thinking, what other special skills do I possess?? Here is a short list of jobs that I could do well and deserve to paid handsomely for:

unnecessary errand runner
picture straightener
junk mail opener
scooper of poop
dispensor of unsolicited advice
stuck together grocery cart un-sticker
BBQ potato chip taster
sun tan lotion applier
pile rearranger
American Idol of the shower third runner-up
pigeon and squirell feeder
dirty pan in the sink soaker
water bottle un-finisher
watcher of cooking shows (no cooking, just watching)


Thank you to my facebook friends for these suggestions:


belly button lint remover
toe nail cleaner
monkey handler (there's more to that story)
banana peel slipperiness tester
crash test dummy
spider bite judge
light socket tester
light socket taster
light socket licker (one great idea begats another)
human speed bump
finger vice salesman
expired unused concert ticket salesman
parking meter feeder
arm pit odor sniffer
vegetable de-wormer
model for "don't walk" and "wet floor" signs

This is just a starting list, I welcome any and all alternative career suggestions,

Then I can write "Brilliant Careers Part 2 "

Thanks for reading my Hub!!

      Enjoyed your humor. There is sadness here and injustice too. Our country needs to make some changes. Why not take a vacation? (smile) Hope you will visit my new hub about cruising: http://hubpages.com/hub/ebywaycruise. Warm regards...Gary.

      plastic plant leaf cleaner and mini blind duster. i've been in offices where i've fought the urge to wipe those things down they were so dusty. you could call your service "Leaves Blinds," just for the fun of it.

      thanks Keith and Pamela, feel free to share more ideas!

      I find that they come to me at any given time, I need to keep a pen and paper close or I'll forget them (killed too many brain cells in my past life, perhaps?)
