Odd Jobs


I saw the strangest thing while walking back from Blockbuster Saturday night.

To stay as far away from the street (and from potential assholes) as possible, I usually shortcut through this row of medical hospitals, ob-gyns, blood centers, etc. And what did I come across at 10 PM?

A guy from a lawn service riding a giant John Deere.

Cutting the grass. At 10 PM. On a Saturday night.

I have never seen anybody cut their grass at night, let alone on Date Night U.S.A. That's something my dad would do if he had the lighting and if the neighborhood would allow it. I wanted to ask the guy why he was cutting grass on a Saturday night, but I thought better of it.

However, he doesn't have to work in the hot sun, and he doesn't have to work around people, so I guess there's a positive.

Still, while it's not the weirdest thing I've ever seen, you don't expect to come across THAT.

Which leads me to ask: what's the oddest job you've ever had?

For me, I guess it would be my brief stint at Bath & Body Works. Yep, you read that right, I worked at Bath & Body Works. You might think that a store like Bath & Body Works, which caters by and large to women, would seem a little out of place for a man (and I was the only man on staff), but I loved the job actually. I worked in the back, so customers never bothered me, all the lotions and creams meant I smelled great when the day was done, and best of all, I worked with some gorgeous women. Sadly, this was during The Lost Virginal Years, where peeking at a thong was the most sexual thing I was going to experience, so nothing ever happened. But my time there did lead me to actually use B&BW products on a regular basis; even now, I have several handsoaps from that store in my place. (That's about the closest to a metrosexual I'll ever get.) And everytime I walk past a store or take a whiff of Warm Vanilla Sugar, it brings back memories.

So, tell me, Big & Tall wants to know... what's the weirdest (or most unusual) job you've ever worked?

Everytime I walk into a Christian bookstore, I feel like an intruder. There's one in the Knoxville mall, and I couldn't be in it for 5 seconds without thinking "I'm trespassing."

And congratulations BBW, for you're the 200th commenter on my blog!

Your reward: you get to spend quality, naked time in bed with me at the time of your choosing.
