Lifestyle | By Ian Anglin | November 16, 2017

Over the course of your life, you have probably noticed that the job you are doing doesn't really have a correlation to the amount of money you will make. Some jobs sound good and prosperous on paper, only to end up not making enough to make your while. In similar fashion, some jobs may sound odd or weird, but once you get in that industry, you'll seem to be having much more free time and disposable income. Today, 15 such jobs are going to be listed.

Being a Professional Snuggler

Autocorrect tried to change "snuggler" into "smuggler," but the first spelling of the word is the actual correct one. In some scenarios, professional snugglers can expect to make almost $60 per hour, provided you have the right clientele.

Paper Towel Tester

The paper towel industry is huge - paper towels of all sorts, even the wet anti-bacterial ones are booming in almost every country in the world. That is why being a paper tower tester (also called "snigger") can pay you $19,000 - $52,000 per year.

Water Slide Tester

Similarly to how paper tower sniffer sounds a fun job, water slide could even sound better. Just imagine being paid to test out water slides 8 hours per day - it sounds amazing. The only negative is that you will be making only around $30,000 per year, due to the limited market.

Sex Toy Tester

Here is a more sexual type of job for people that like to work in that industry. A sex toy tester involved just the things you are thinking off, which, depending on the person, could either mean that it is a dream job or one of the worst jobs possible.

Pet Food Tester

Sure, pet food is very convenient, but companies can't just sell anything to your cat or dog. There is a rigorous testing processing, including tests for both safety, and taste. That's why there are people paid to eat pet food at a rate of $40,000 per year.

Being an Embalmer

No one likes death and dying, but there is a whole industry dedicated to serving the families of deceased people - after all, someone has to work this dark job. Being an embalmer means you are going to be spending a lot of time with dead bodies, which is why the job pays $45,000 per year.

Bomb Disposal Diver

Here is a more "007" type of jobs, for those that crave adrenaline on their jobs. Being a bomb disposal diver could be one of the highest paying jobs on today's list - people in this industry can easily earn over $100,000 per year - but the job does include a lot of risks.

Horse Rider and Exerciser

Owning horses for fun and leisure is an activity that is usually only done by rich people. That means if you find the right spot in this industry, you can easily get a decent income. Dedicated horse riders and exercisers can earn over $50,000 in annual income.

Professional Bridesmaid

If you are a good listener, and you like parties and weddings, then there is some good news for you. It seems that more and more couples are paying for a professional bridesmaid, which is why some the fee to hire a bridesmaid is now hanging around $300 to $2,000 per wedding.

Be a Live Mannequin

Fortune Cookie Writers

Everyone has received fortune cookies while being in a restaurant, which is naturally why that means that someone people have to work in that industry to make fortune cookies a possibility. Writing fortune cookie messages can net you $28,00 to $75,000.

Elevator Mechanic

A lot of people have a fear of being stuck in an elevator, which is why if you tell them that you are an "elevator mechanic," many of them are going to respect you. Plus, as an additional bonus, elevator mechanics can easily make over $70,000 per year.

Wine Taster

Being a professional wine taster is kind of similar to some of the previous mentioned jobs (such as the paper towel sniffer) with the difference being that saying that you are "wine taster," seems to have slightly more cachet - and you can earn over $80,000 per year.

Bingo Manager

If you are the kind of persona that loves bingo and being around elderly people, then why not become a professional bingo manager? The job is exactly like it was shown on the "Better Call Saul" TV show. The pay ranged at about $56,000 per year.
