This is a bizarre job is tradition in The Peabody Hotels of Memphis, Little Rock and Orlando, since 1940. A trained Duckmaster marches a troupe of ducks into the lobby every morning for the guests to admire and take photos.

3) Ash Portrait Artist (Missouri)
When one of our relatives die and we want to keep their ashes, we don’t always know what to do with them, put them on a shelf? Scatter them by a tree? However, there are some artists that use them to create a portrait of the person that died, so now their remains can become a picture on the wall.
4) Professional Apologizer (Japan)
Ok, this one only happens, guess where, that’s right, in Japan. Japanese people are so hard working that they can take care of pretty much anything. Anything but saying sorry. Apparently. So they hire a professional to go to the offended person’s residence and ask for their forgiveness in the most respectful way.
5) Professional Hitchhiker (Indonesia)
In Indonesia, the government has restricted some lanes of traffic to only cars with 3 or more people So these professionals will offer their company in your car in case you can’t fill the car with 3 people. Now you can enjoy the insane traffic with two paid strangers in your car!
6) Professional Elephant Dresser (Sri Lanka)
In Sri Lanka, they perform a lot of ceremonies involving elephants. The problem is that they put clothes on the elephant, and as you can imagine, they’re very hard to get dressed. So, these professionals manage to get the elephant ready for the event.
7) Bike Fishers (Amsterdam)
In Amsterdam, the ground is so flat that most people ride a bike instead of using a car. The thing is that many of those bikes end up in the canal when people don’t want them anymore. So, these fishermen hunt and fish them out of the water to keep it clean.
8) Professional Mourner (Asia)
It’s very sad when someone dies, but it’s even sadder when no-one turns up to that person’s funeral. The professional mourners are hired to go to the cemetery and cry for the deceased as if he were their best friend.
9) Oshiya (Japan)
In Japan, it’s almost mandatory to use the metro. It’s very extensive and connects everywhere. But when there are too many people these professionals take action. They cram people into the carriages in order to get the doors closed.
10) Professional Sleeper (Finland)
