- Designer bed/mattress tester. Sleeping on the job and having a lie-in would be allowed.
- Professional house-sitter. Apparently, there are a lot of rich people in this world and they’d like their home to be safe when they’re away and they often leave their home to the responsibility of a house sitter, who ensures that when the home owners are away, they can live in their home like it is their own
- Screenplay or script reader. I'd be good at it. I could help actors like Robert De Niro and Brendan Fraser make better movie choices. Is there a job opening for that?
- Dramatic actor in infomercials. I'm a terrible actor too, so it doesn't seem like much of a stretch that I could make my way to an advertisement for a product you never knew you needed.
- Ice-cream taste tester Definitely a win-win situation here. I hear they give you a gold-plated spoon?
- The person who edits trailers. Have you ever noticed how they always pick the best parts of the movie and there is always a kicking song playing in the background? And then you go see the actual movie and surprise surprise, you’ve already seen all the parts worth seeing. Anyways, I love movie trailers.
- A buyer for a department store. You get to pick the clothes they sell. Complete power.
- Elf at Santa's workshop. I'll work at the teddy-bear department, stuff each one with hugs and good wishes.
- Professional list-maker. Because I have OCL. Obsessive compulsive list-making.
