No, this isn’t a joke. Someone actually earns a living watching paint dry. A man in the UK currently has the job, and he spends his days painting sheets of cardboard to test how long new paint mixes take to dry and watching for changes in colour and texture. As per a Business Insider report from 2021, a man named Matthew Risbridger was working at paint developer and maker AquaTec Coatings in Wrexham, Wales, mentioning that I watch paint dry for a living.

Imagine being paid to watch TV all day! Well for one lucky employee this dream has become a reality. Netflix had hired someone to watch all of their content before it is available to the public and their role is to review and assign each program its correct tag, which helps us viewers find exactly what we’re after, whether it’s a romantic crime movie based on classic literature or witty talking-animal TV show.

Also known as subway pushers or professional pushers, this job belongs to Japan. In order to fit twice the number of passengers into a subway carriage, the stations employ uniformed staff known as oshiya, or “pusher,” whose goal is to cram as many people as possible into the train. These white glove-wearing people actually push people into the train so the doors can be shut.

In order to test the effectiveness of new products, ‘odour judges’ are hired to smell volunteers’ breath, feet, and armpits. They make sure their judgement is accurate, and the members of staff have their sense of smell tested monthly. Let’s hope those products are doing the trick, for the judges’ sake!
