Recently “cuddlers” became a real profession. As it often happens, it all began in Japan, but then North America thought about this idea and organized the service of professional cuddlers. Before the cuddle session begins, people sign a contract where they promise to refrain from any actions of sexual nature. Platonic love is alive!

Line-standers

This profession exists at least in two countries. In the US, representatives of this company offer you to stand in the tiring line at congressional hearings instead of you for only $36 per hour.

In China, the field of activity of “line-standers” is much broader: in such a densely populated country, even going to a bank can take you half of a day. Therefore, services, where you can pay other people to stand in the line, are very popular.

Mourners

Rent-a-Mourner agency was opened in 2013 in Britain. It is ready to take on the organization of crowd of mourners (there are several dozen employees in the staff). Before the funeral, they get acquainted with short information about the deceased, which allows them to have conversations with guests and relatives.

Takanobu Nishimoto had been running a very unusual business in Tokyo since 2012. It is called “Ossan Rental”, where “Ossan” is somewhat of a reference for ‘uncles’, or middle-aged men. For just $8.89 an hour, these men will listen to your woes, do chores, give you life advice and even pretend to be your boyfriend to ward off stalkers.

Live mannequin

The industrial revolution led to the fact that robots and machines began to replace hard working people. But, finally, the working class struck back – people began to replace mannequins for $100 an hour. So, if you ever see a mannequin move, you are not going insane, it is just a real person.

Professional Sleeper

People get paid for sleeping! Like, for real! A person comes to “an office”, falls asleep and scientists conduct research on sleep disorders. This one is arguably the best job in the world.

Which one of these jobs do you think is the weirdest one?
