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 Missouri writes:

When somebody leaves their laundry in the washer/dryer for more than 2 hours, she takes it out, dries it and sells it to the local resale shop.  Also trolls lost-and-founds around campus to sell items on eBay or back to the college bookstore.

She makes about $900 a month, more in the winter.  Laughs uncontrollably at the sight of student cafeteria workers and work-study students.

She’s always fun to go out and party with, because she always has beer money. Usually will give dibs to her roommates and suite-mates.’

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