Good, bad, or in between, what is the weirdest job you've ever had?

For instance, I've done some freelance design work for a woman who believes she channels the soul of a dead pop star.

I used to work for a company called "Batesville Caskets." I would remove the caskets from the factory, and place them onto the delivery truck for the funeral home.

My jobs have not been very weird.
Weirdest and worst was a job selling china door to door. A waste of time and money.
I was also a Chocolatier/Candyman/Confectioner. Take your pick which title you like.
Made and covered in chocolate:

  • Caramel
  • Marshmallow
  • Cream centers
  • Truffle centers
  • Marzipan
  • Cordial Cherries

We also made pornographic chocolates.

I'd forgotten about the website design and social media work I did for a friend (!) who channeled for an angel.

Maybe the coolest, but by no means the best paying, was working as a guide at a game farm. The pace was established while waiting for my interview - all nicely dressed, I rode a teeter-totter with a black bear. I later had the opportunities to scratch cougars and tigers behind the ears (favorite part of the job!) and get a kodiak bear to do some basic tricks.

Because of my security clearance and MOS I traveled all over the world as a secretary, driver, body guard, sounding board, keeper of secrets for Generals and Master Sergeant Majors. Sometimes we would stop in countries for an hour and leave. I wasnt told what country either. This was during Vietnam. I think most of it had to do with certain young ladies or boys. Oh yeah and some war stuff.

boys?

@MrLizard
I didn't think so at the time but who knows? I was often asked to stay by the jeep or outside this door.

I managed an Adult Theater and Bookstore. I was 18. I'm afraid it probably had an influence on me.

Worked on a shrimp boat for three months between bands, and as an assistant chimney sweep for a couple of weeks to pick up a little extra cash.

That is not a weird job... though I net you could tell us some really weird stories that happened there.

@MrLizard op said “good, bad, or in between”

@Marcie1974 But the main descriptive term is "weirdest". However, I will allow you to interpret it differently than I did. smile009.gif

I suppose the oddest one was being a sandwich board man for a blinds company, walking about in a Top Hat, with boards hung over my shoulders handing out leaflets

I’ve never had a weird job: busboy, dishwasher, security guard, custodian, construction mechanic, power plant technician, power plant supervisor, logistician, secondary math teacher.
