There are very many types of jobs around the world, some being weirder than others. So, if you are familiar with jobs like doctor, cashier, or librarian, considering them a normal part of our lives, then you need to know that there are quite a few jobs that are rather unusual. We picked the 10 most unusual jobs that you can find out there, so if you are ready to be intrigued, do take a look at the following occupations that actually allow some people to earn a living, in spite of what you may think.
#1 Bed Warmer
When the temperatures outside are low, getting into bed and facing the cold sheets is definitely not on our list of favorite things. If you want to avoid the session of shivers until your bed gets warm, you should hire a Bed Warmer. Yes, this is a job invented by the aristocrats of the English society, back in the days, when wealthy people used to send their servants to get their beds warm before they went to sleep. And, believe it or not, such services are available nowadays as well, as a Russian woman manages to earn £1,350 per month, by offering bed warming services at £65 per session.
#2 Professional wedding attendant or guest
It is said that weddings are made with people, but what do you do if your friend’s group is rather small and you realize that you’re going to have just a handful of wedding guests? Well, in this case, you can always hire wedding guests. These are actors that will pretend to be your much-needed friends or colleagues from work, rapidly increasing the number of your wedding attendants. In Japan, one wedding guest costs £127 and for additional fees, such a guest can even hold a speech, sing a song, or perform a dance, according to preferences.
#3 Cat catcher
Cats are independent and elusive creatures that won’t please you if they don’t agree with a plan or actions. For example, putting your cat in a crate so you can take it to the vet can be an adventure that lasts for hours, with high risks of injuries for both parties involved. Fortunately, there are people offering cat catching services, doing this unpleasant task for you, without the danger of getting the cat injured during the process. One of the best cat catchers in the world charges cat owners with $80 per cat, so it is not one of the cheapest services out there, although the thought of being scratch-free will make you want to pay anything.
#4 Deer Urine Farmer
Now, this is a job you would consider a joke, but the truth is that there really are such farmers out there. What do people need deer urine for? It appears that this kind of pee is the “perfume” used by hunters to lure in unsuspecting deer, as they approach the scented areas with the desire of meeting the deer that left the trails. But, unfortunately, they end up in front of a gunshot and turned into steak. Farmers can earn between $93,000 and $303,000 per year by collecting the urine of one single deer. So just think about the sums they reach when they have several deer in their care.
#5 Professional snuggler
There are many people these days that focus on their careers more than anything, neglecting their personal lives and relationships. Thus, they may end up in a situation where they are desperate for a cuddle, but there’s no one around to offer it. In this case, they can pick up their phone and call in a professional snuggler. For such a service, people pay between $40 and $100 for every hour spent in the company of their snuggler, but when you think that such a simple gesture is capable of improving confidence and self-esteem, it is worth paying the money for it rather than heading towards depression.
