We all grow up hearing that we can be whatever we want to be as long as we work hard and never give up. Most dream of being a doctor, lawyer, or even a famous singer. Some people have aspirations to design clothes, or buildings, or to run a Michelin starred restaurant.
No matter what our hopes and dreams are, there comes a point in our life when we have to get a job to be able to pay our bills. Some people are lucky enough to be able to work at their dream job, but others have to take what they can get.
Unfortunately, just about everything in this world depends on money, so working is a part of life. We would all love to have high-paying jobs that are easy and not stressful, and that keep our minds fulfilled and challenged every day. Sometimes we get it, and sometimes you fall into a job by accident that may be pretty bizarre.
Some of the jobs that I’m about to tell you about don’t sound too bad, but there are some that are just plain weird. Most of them are jobs that you would only do if you were desperate for money, and couldn’t find anything else. My mind is blown that there are people all over the world actually doing these 13 bizarre jobs!
1. Lunch box delivery person
In America, we can order food from almost anywhere right from our phone. Almost every restaurant has an app, or a website where you can order online and choose to pick up your food, or have it delivered to you. What a convenience. In India, there is also a way to have your food delivered, by a dabbawala. These lunch box delivery men go to the homes of those wanting lunches, and pick up a home cooked meal to deliver to them at work. Later in the day, they go back to collect all of the empty lunch boxes and return them to the homes they got them from. I love this idea! I wish I could have someone deliver me a home cooked meal instead of having to resort to a drive thru burger.
2. Professional Cuddler
This next job is one that many people would love. So many people would do it for free. I know a lot who would sign up for it in a heartbeat. Professional cuddling. Sometimes people get lonely. Sometimes they just need a little comfort if they have had a bad day or been through something traumatic. For an hourly fee, you can hire a cuddler to come give you a little TLC. There are rules, though. No funny business and there is a dress code. This is not for those who have been looking for love in all the wrong places. It’s simply to provide a little human contact and comfort. I could be down with this job if it was only babies. Not sure if I could handle grown men and women who might have bad hygiene or funky breath.
3. Chicken Sexer
The thought of working in a chicken house or plant makes my stomach hurt. But for those that have a strong constitution, becoming a chicken sexer just might be the key to a better future. What exactly is a chicken sexer, you might ask? Well, they determine whether a chick is a boy or girl by squeezing out the poop and opening the anal vent to check for a bump which indicates the gender. You might balk, but this job pays up to $60,000 a year, according to Inquisitr. That is an awful lot of dough, but it’s pretty gross and monotonous work. I would also be sad, because the whole reason they need to know the genders in the first place is because they destroy the boy chicks.
