Odd Job Nation brings out the weird jobs in Tampa Bay

And you think your job is weird.

When you're feeling freaked out by your boss' collection of troll dolls or your co-worker's penchant for sloppy sneezes, pop over to OddJobNation.com. The website calls itself the "ultimate resource for today's growing army of part-time opportunists." It's devoted to scrounging up side hustles in the most unexpected places, using a combination of regional Craigslist posts and more formal want ads.

There are the typical modeling and grass-cutting and bus driving and house-cleaning jobs, sure. But mired in the cracks are the true gems, the odd jobs you never dared to imagine existed. Here are the best of the weirdest from the Tampa Bay, word-for-word. After all, shaky spelling is part of the whole odd package.
