8 Real Jobs that Prove
Humanity is Doomed
By Therese Aseoche
It’s amazing how business-minded people are able to capitalize on society’s “needs” and create very real jobs for very real people to do.
Jobs that otherwise would have been unnecessary if society wasn’t so lazy, spoon-fed, and obsessed with instant gratification.
Yup, humanity is doomed.
Jowa for Rent
Just over a week ago, an ad for a new mobile app called “Pangga” (a Visayan term of endearment) went viral on Facebook for offering a companionship service that lets anyone rent a boyfriend or girlfriend for social events. It’s much different from the dating apps we know and use because any sexual interaction or physical intimacy is off limits. Basically, it’s only goal is to help you look good on social media, or to get your annoying tita to finally stop asking you if you about your love life.
And then there’s a service perfect for those lonely Friday nights when you’re alone at home while all your friends are either partying the night away or having nice dates with their significant others, and for those rainy “cuddle weather” afternoons. Because these days there’s nothing nicer than to be listened to and held by a complete stranger without it leading to sex.
Planetary Protection Officer
I don’t know about you, but I think NASA knows something we mere humans don’t. In fact, they’re probably harboring tons of secrets about the universe and alien lifeforms that they refuse to make public just to control an impending frenzy.
It hardly eases our nerves though that they suddenly opened a job for a Planetary Protection Officer, even if the job entails having to “help defend Earth from alien contamination” and vice versa cause it’s pretty clear that it’s NASA’s way of saying the planet’s completely fucked.
Apparently, guys are so inept in approaching women at social events these days (we blame Tinder) that it’s become necessary to organize “Pick-Up-Artist Bootcamps” to help them get laid. But hey, effort reaps merit, I guess.
