Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from Atlanta writes:

The actual job: Review and assess business requirements needed for any new project or an enhancement in an existing product prepare a detailed functional specification document create/raise issues in current production environment investigate and fix those issues

What people really do: nothing.

Copy things here and there from previous functional specification documents only create and raise the hell about current issues/problems and blame it on Engineers and poor design chat and leave home early to put. In short bulls**t your way to an upper management position and be the ultimate and biggest bulls**tter

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
