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 in California writes:

I manage a team of unexperienced rookies who create 100’s of faulty drawings that show underpaid Contractors where to put an equipment cabinet on a concrete slab.

Of course the contractor uses the drawings as toilet paper, places the cabinet in the wrong place and blames you’re company for designing it wrong. You’re boss blames you for managing the project wrong, and you blame your rookies for drawing it wrong, who say that in order to do it right, they need more time that you don’t have. And that’s if they speak English.

Pay 60-100k

Upside – You get to correct drawings with a red pen

Downside – If you’re not busy enough managing..you have to do some of the drawings yourself.

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