    Though I've been a laundry puller. Now, if you want to have 18" arms, or you already HAVE 18" arms or bigger, that's a great job for you.

    Basically, what you do, is you dive into the big laundry washing machines and spinning machines, and pull out the tangled laundry to put it into the next processing machine. (At Ames Laundry, of course...) It's a great workout, for sure.

    Re: wierd jobs

    A couple of years ago, I supervised prison inmates counting trees. It was my job to make sure that they counted to 5.

    I guess that 17 cent/hour labor doesn't always get real motivated

    Wow, that surprises me. First thing I thought of when I saw this thread was, "I wonder how many of them Phaedrus has done." haha
