Blogging Is About To Go Way, Way Too Far
Charmin will be interviewing on November 5, hoping to hire five people to be bathroom attendants. But instead of a little platter of loose change, Charmin will pay $10,000 each, just to work from November 23 through December 31 in the Charmin Restrooms in Times Square. And they have to blog about the experience!
Yes, imagine that you need a paper towel or a breath mint, but the damned bathroom attendant is over in the corner typing away at a keyboard, blogging about the drunk that came in before you. This is why they will be paid, because they certainly won't be able to depend on tips.
Next possibility: a surgical nurse who blogs from the operating room.
