Coolest Job You've Ever Had
And I'm talking all-around uniqueness, coolness, sentimentality factor, etc etc. No run of the mill **** posing as a "cool job".
Mine was without a doubt working for the town during summers throughout high school and my first year of college. I don't want to fuel the stereotype of city/town workers...but for five summers, I did not do a thing! It was in my hometown, so there was a four minute commute at most and 90% of my job was manning a pumping station since this was the last pumping station that was not computerized and it needed to be manned 24-7 during the summers. I would literally bring a few mags, a cooler with some drinks and food, and I'd lay out all day...or, on ****ty days, I had an old school nintendo set up inside. Those were the days.

I have had many...right now I get to travel all over North America. It's cool for the sake of always being in new places and restaurants...never mundane.

I would have to say the job I have now. I am the boss, I can come and go as I please, I can delegate responsabilities, and can pay myself whatever I need to to pay the bills or to go an vacation

The one I have now of course............ I get to play all day on AR and look at the gorgeous Spanish women that work for me

Working for IBM at the sydney olympics, getting to see an event up close, and getting paid $2500 a week to have a lot of fun. Nothing has matched that yet.

Honestly the best job I ever had was in my early 20's working as a tripping counselor in a boys summer camp in the Adirondacks...
I was paid, fed, roomed and my job consisted of sitting on the beach and go on hikes or canoe camping trips twice a week and have fun with the kids...
God dämm I miss that job!

My current job as a firefighter. It's the best I get to play and complete my second degree at work on my lap top while getting paid and mess around on AR.

This little restaurant that floats on the lake.. I was a waitress and my siter was a hostess.... I guess Im technically still employed there cause Im still in the computer and on payroll... the manager would give us shots during the shift ( respectively called "shift shots") worked with all a bunch of young people 15-25 y/o... made $200 bucks a night (atleast) .. and after we got off work we would take my managers boat out, go to the water trampoline and smoke and drink ourselves into idiots!!! Greatest 3 summers of my life!!!!

Easily my favorite job is working for Major League Baseball in conjunction with FOX-TV. I travel around to various ballparks to cover the Game of the Week all the while i get to meet with umpires, players, managers, and anyone else involved with the game while working for FOX. For those who love the game as much as I do it doesn't get any better than this, not to mention I get paid **** well.

My military career in S.Korea was awesome. Nothing cooler than being a Ground FAC. I could never express the fun and excitement through words alone.

I love my job now...Women's Shoes..definity have gotten the most dates in my whole life working there...but all time funnest has to be working on a Snorkel Tour Boat on the NaPali coast on Kauai, in Hawaii. Hang out on a boat for 5 hours with super hot girls and get paid about 250 bucks a day.....free food and lots of sun....I just had to be on the boat for legal reasons. I did nothing.

Best job ever . . . training police dogs in the military. Nothing will get your adrenilin flowing like a 90 lb german shepherd chomping on your arm (we had a double-sheet of leather to put over our forearms for protection). Yah, that was cool, but even better was when they gave me a 15 lb terrier to train for narcotics.
Thing was that I didn't think it was fair to send someone to federal prison for 5 years for a bit of grass, so I let more people off than I can recall--gave 'em a warning and flushed the stuff down the john; probably kept a few folks from ruining the rest of their lives over silly crap . . .
But it sure was nice starting the workday with a dog who was always happy to see you, no matter what . . .

My coolest job was working in the music business. I was an assistant audio engineer at the biggest recording studio in Nashville. It was no big deal to me because I don't listen to country music, but I got to work with a lot of the big stars.

As for myself, about ten years back I worked for Alcan and Alcoa installing fiber optics for three Alumina plants in Jamacia for almost two years. Free room and board, doubled my salary, they gave me a truck to drive all over the island and I went to every beach they had to spend the weekend at some resort (free). Made a **** load of money and had a great time......and I didn't have to do a lot of work.....had about fifteen men who worked for me.
