Your ultimate job?

Postby PresMuffley » 11 Mar 2017, 19:29

I think being a professional tennis chair umpire would have to be it. I love tennis, they travel, sit on their ass the entire match (unless playing on clay) and rarely ever have to make an important call. No idea what their salary is or what the benefits are but I'll take a wild guess and say that if they're officiating a grand slam they probably get fairly compensated.

Extremely well-paid genealogist.

Ooh- or location researcher type person for tv programmes/films etc.

Or peanut butter farmer.

Being a peanut butter farmer would be great, but I'd probably end up eating my entire harvest.

You seem well-suited for that.

Earlier I was reading about ornamental hermits. I feel that I would qualify.

I wouldn't really want a job where I got paid a lot for doing nothing. I can't stand being bored at work, I'm always looking for something to fill the time.

I'd like a job where I got paid a lot for doing something socially or personally valuable but not too high-risk. Does such a thing exist?

Y'know, I'm like that, but I hate being really busy with a particular task that's seen as being vital, until I get back to being bored a few days later, and look back on the stress and pressure with fondness.

Running my own law office without the need to turn a profit and, while we're at it, with significant financial resources.

I'd give ornamental hermit a try.

Another gig I'd like would be to run my own youth center with an all-ages venue. I wouldn't call it an ultimate job because dealing with minors and fighting, weapons, drug and alcohol use isn't a picnic, but I'd be good at it, And I've worked in front of house, box office, youth centers, rec centers, schools, venue management, bars, kitchens and event security so it plays on some of my strengths. But Script Doctor is the work from home, fix what is wrong, plot-o kind of gig I'd be aces at. Hard work, thankless work and not the best pay unless you used to be William Goldman or something, but still...interesting stuff.

What about adapting novels into screenplays? Ever seen Kaufman's Adaptation ?
