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).

I work part time in a management job for UPS.  I basically make sure packages are correct to the right zip code, address, etc to ensure delivery at the correct time.  The salary, yes salary,  I make is right at $1400 a month, but I work 4 1/2 hours a night, usually sitting around almost 2 of those hours.  It’s the perfect job for a full time college student who doesn’t want to make minimum wage working at some random dive in a college town.  Friday – Sunday off and about 3/4 of my tuition is reimbursed.  A great way not to starve through college and even better career opportunities where the real money is after graduation.  And no you don’t have to wear a brown uniform.

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