It's Probably Rubbish

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 Posted In , , , Edit This 7 Comments »
I just saw an article advertising "The Best Job in the World".

Apparently, all you need to do is occasionally walk around a small island on Great Barrier Reef in Australia and make sure everything is OK. Take pictures, do a little snorkeling, skinny-dipping, then report back to the boss... "Everything is okay boss."



Job comes with free three bedroom house. Bring the kids and grandma.

And the salary for this? US$105,000!!


I'm suspicious... you know the old adage... if it looks to good to be true... it's probably worse than you can imagine. Which leads me to believe that there is a huge catch here that they don't mention.

Personally, I think they're going to be doing some nuclear testing and you're their guinea pig. One day you will be sipping your virgin pina colada and thanking your lucky stars when KABOOM! "Did you feel that earthquake?"

Two days before the lesions appear.

By all means, check out the article. Go ahead, apply.

I'm just saying.

Maybe there are lots of sharks where you're supposed to go snorkeling. You know, the sharks that don't bite so hard...

You know if I could make 105,000 one year and die soon after, I don't see a problem. A good excuse to visit Australia, I say!

So, with billions of out of work American's applying for said position, do you think they're just going to pick the best looking? It seems appropriate, given the necessary swimsuit attire. Some stupid single guy who knows how to swim and be tan will most likely spend the rest of his life in paradise.

Stupid tan people.

Sounds like a terrible job. Sun. Sand. Beach. Ick. I wouldn't want to work there.

I'm using reverse psychology on myself. It's not working.

Yeah, I heard about this on the news. It made me wish I still had my snorkeling gear, because then maybe all my dreams could come true. Unfortunately, however, I'm afraid I won't be applying. The disappointment is enough to drive a person right into the arms of a big Belgian Hunk...

Be fair R if the job title was 'Fall Guy' no one would apply.
