Default any unusual jobs?????

Hi all,
Just for curiosity I wondered if anyone has an unusual job here in Spain. I only ever hear of telesales, bars, shops and working with expats. It would be nice to hear from people employed in different fields, like being a wringer outer for a one armed window cleaner for example.

I knew a wedding planner in Mallorca, that was pretty unusual.

......No not really, there are several gypsy types on the big roundabout by Ikea Murcia that do it all day every day!

Justy a damp rag in a plastic bag seems to be the modus operandi.

Wow!

Do you think someone could make a living doing this?

Head caddy master and pro shop manager. Not that unusual in the Murcia region though.

maybe you misread the title, it said unusual, not useless.
