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 Minnesota writes:

Charge residents $1000’s to inspect work of shoddy contractor’s and don’t show up to the jobsite. See homeowner find a septic tank installed without a drainfield.  Claim immunity from wrong doing because you are city employee.

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