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 Phoenix writes:

Pick up people who are too important to ride a shuttle bus or taxi, and forget car rental – that involves work.  It’s a great system.  The customer arrives at the airport, pays $5 to the baggage porter.  Then there is the $100 trip fee plus another $20 tip to the driver.  The driver calls ahead to the bell boy at the resort who then unloads baggage -you guessed it, another $5 tip.  $130 changes hands in 35 minutes and this goes on 24/7.  When the airlines run late, the biz. booms.  I love my job!

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