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 Georgia writes:

We do paperwork for the Executive Officer and the Command.  The Bulls**t part of it is we have to stay at work until the Executive Officer leaves for the day and when he decides he doesn’t want to do any work until 4-5pm, it gets really stressful, especially if you have been sitting in the office waiting for him to give you something to do all day.  He casually strolls back into his office at 4pm, just to start loading you down with work.  I mean come on, it’s not like we don’t have social life’s or anything.

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