Since retiring from my career as a commercial photographer, and then retiring from my next career as a personal trainer, I frequently peruse Craigs List looking for other jobs from which I might one day retire.

This one definitely caught my eye. It had “AMAZING OPPORTUNITY” written all over it!

Drive my dog and I around

Ok so I guess I should explain. I know there are dog walkers.

I can walk my own dog.

I do not drive, and he LOVES car rides

compensation $20

I would have jumped all over this, except that the job is in Oceanside, and that’s just too far away from where I live. All that driving would’ve eaten into my profits.

But, had this job opening been in my ‘hood, I’d be doin’ it, baby! I love dogs, and I have a car, and I’m cool with having dogs in my car. I’m sure I could have come up with a very professional looking resume to show off all of these qualifications and then some (my car is clean, my car stereo is pretty good, I never speed, I always come to a complete stop at stop signs, I always keep a doggie water bowl in my car).

I’m pretty sure this is legit. I mean, you just can’t make up stuff like this, right? Unless “Drive my dog and I around” is code for something else….hmmm……
