Believe it or not, but Americans chew $3 billion worth of gum a year. While some properly throw it away in a gum wrapper or piece of paper, others regrettably throw it on the street or stick it underneath a chair or table—and someone has to clean up that mess. Enter chewing gum-removal specialists.
Companies like GumBusters are tasked with removing gum from city streets and walls. Instead of using a power washer, GumBusters uses special machines that require less water and “elbow grease” to lift off and dispose of gum. The company can also remove graffiti and clean store awnings. If you’re interested in working for GumBusters, visit their website. And while you’re at it, be sure to check out the surprising benefits of chewing gum.

In Sydney, Australia, an avocado pop-up restaurant called Good Fats was looking to hire someone as their “Head of Avo Control” when they first opened. The job entailed taste testing all 20 menu items to ensure quality, testing the ripeness of the kitchen’s avocado supply, and becoming an “avocate” for the pop-up on social media.
Applicants needed at least two years of experience of “smashing avocados on toast,” and have “proven knowledge of how to check avocado ripeness,” according to Good Fats’ website. Sadly, the position doesn’t pay, but it does include eating at the pop-up for free. If you’d like to apply, contact Good Fats directly. Speaking of avocados, don’t miss the avocado-themed restaurants to add to your bucket list.
