Bed Warmer to Bone Counter: 10 real jobs we can’t quite believe people have had
Share This Article:
Forget working in our local WH Smiths to fund our booze money over the summer – if we get our way, we’ll be polishing up our CVs and priming for jobs as waterslide testers and luxury hotel “bed warmers.” On the less enticing end of the scale, the weird world of employment has led some bemused souls into jobs including professional mourning, counting bones and acting as, um, a human scarecrow. On second thoughts, maybe flogging newspapers and chewing gum doesn’t sound so bad… 1. Bed Warmer Yes, this is real: people actually get paid to pre-heat beds. Some hotels have employees who wear hygienic and thermal suits act as a human water bottle for guests before they arrive. We find this creepy, in all honesty. 2. Bone counter Definitely not a task for the squeamish, but someone has to do it. In fact, someone has done it; getting paid to take semi-butchered and frozen cadaver bones and chopping them up into useable pieces for transplants. Sounds like a lovely time. 3. Art model As long as you can get past the whole ‘people will be staring at your naked body all day’ aspect, this job is almost too good to be true. Getting paid to pose nude is not a hard life. 4. Queuer No one really “likes” lines, but some people have more patience than others. If potentially mind-numbing boredom and aching feet doesn’t faze you, have a crack at being a professional queuer for the holidays.
