7. Professional Ear Cleaner
You can pay about $40 to over $110 for a professional ear cleaning. For the most part, you yourself can take care of your ears without needing a professional ear cleaning and only people with certain symptoms or conditions may need it. If you have careful hands and really good eyesight, then you might want to look into being a professional ear cleaner (and nostril cleaner) so long as its other aspects don’t gross you out.

5. Iceberg Towing
Ever since the famous Titanic sinking, it seemed apparent that icebergs were a huge risk to sea vessels. While there’s better technology now to know if something’s near a boat, you can also work as an iceberg tower. Groups from North America and Europe came together to form the International Ice Patrol to prevent more collisions with icebergs. About 20,000 to 40,000 icebergs get moved every year in the North Atlantic, especially if it looks like it’s close to any oil rig. Operators of sea vessels are recommended to keep 650 feet away or 198.12 meters icebergs.

4. Testing Pet Food
Some people feel weird about eating pet food--even though if you buy it straight from the store, no dog or cat has eaten it before. When you’re low on money, then you might even opt to eat cat food because it can be cheaper than human food. Other than that, not many people will eat pet food. It may be strange to know that pet food testers exist and that humans have to check the taste and nutritional value of pet food, but of course we want our pets to be eating the healthiest product possible. Actually, most pet food testers will simply taste it and chew it and then in the end spit it out.

3. Subway Pushers
If you’ve ever taken the subway or metro, you know it can get crowded in a train car. Everyone’s in a hurry have no time to wait for the next one. To help get things moving and make sure as many people as possible can get on the train, they have pushers--railway station attendants that push people into trains mostly during rush hours in the morning and evening. In Japan, these workers are known as oshiya, who make sure passengers do not get stuck in the train doors that close automatically. So while it’s kind of weird to know someone’s stuff a train car full of people like sardines in a can, it’s all for the sake of efficiency and safety.

2. Like A Dog
This is when it gets really weird. People get paid to act like dogs? While this kind of job can get really, really weird, there’s also a slightly less weird path this can go in. A pair of artists, Alex Bailey and Kroot Julak, are known to give theatrical performances to dogs. Sometimes the owners watch and get entertained, too, but for the most part it’s all for the pets. This pet performance has them crawling on the floor, acting like dogs, moving around strangely, and overall just doing things that look odd to humans but are things dogs seem to enjoy.
