Top 5 Unusual Jobs

 

If you think your job is weird, check out some of these!

1. The world's fastest wedding chapel 

Rev. Darrell Best, of Illinois, converted his 1940s fire truck so that he could help couples tie the knot while they're on the road. The vehicle is capable of doing 62mph and several of the ceremonies have been conducted at this speed with the bride and the groom, the two witnesses, and the minister all in the back. 

 

2. Egg Breaker/Smeller

The smell of rotten eggs is absolutely awful, yet there are people that make a living detecting this odor. Egg smellers, also more pleasantly known as egg breakers (but with no less unpleasant duties), are employed to separate yolks and whites for use in food products and sniff out the bad eggs in the batch. 

3. Shark Tank Cleaner

Window cleaning is probably not the most fun of professions. Now add to that the requirement to share your job with one of nature’s most deadly predators while simultaneously being watched by a crowd of onlookers, who are curious if you’ll get eaten. You’re about to enter the world of shark tank cleaning.

4. Worm Picker

To catch a fish you must first catch a worm…or get somebody else to catch it for you. That’s right, for the princely sum of as much as 4 cents per worm you can make your living crawling across Canadian farm fields pulling up wiggling bait and stuffing them into a cup.

5. Bicycle Taxi Driver

Although companies in New York City claim their drivers can make $30 to $40 per hour, in most cities you'll make half of that if you're lucky. The good news is that you'll be trained on the job and see the business from the inside. Invest in a few bicycle taxis of your own and soon you'll be collecting a larger share of that dollar-per-minute average charge paid by passengers.
