Work, inherently, isn’t designed to be fun. When I was teenager working as a bus boy—outside in the blaring NJ summer sun—I never once looked up from cleaning half-eaten oysters off the floor beneath a group of sloppy tourists to say to myself, “Whoa, I can’t believe I’m getting paid for this!” Now, I'm an Internet writer. And sometimes, I honestly can't believe I'm getting paid to do this.
But even I am a little envious of these 17 objectively amazing careers; jobs that might seriously make you consider bolting your day job so rapidly, you're liable to leave a Looney Tunes-style silhouette on the exit door. Some of these jobs may not rake in the big bucks, but isn't money kind of obsolete when you're having sex, while stoned, and writing about it for a living? That level of happiness just doesn't have a price tag.
