In a perfect example of demand and supply, a restaurant in Shanghai is providing a unique service for diners who wish to continue using their phones while eating crayfish.

“Professional crayfish peelers” will sit with customers and peel their crustaceans, while the mostly male clientele stay on their devices to play games or chat on social media.

One of the two peelers employed by the restaurant claims she earns more than 10,000 yuan (US$1550) a month.

The job involves overseeing 30 seasonal employees and ensuring that visitors have a good time while visiting St Michael’s Mount, an island off the coast of Cornwall, England, that boasts a medieval castle and several historical buildings.

You’ll get an annual salary of between US$34,000 and US$41,000 and get to stay rent-free on the island that has only 30 fulltime residents.

However, you will be plenty busy as the island sees some 350,000 tourists a year.

Locations included Scotland, Costa Rica and Dominican Republic.

The gig was even a paid one, to the tune of US$10,000 a month plus a travel allowance.

If this is not the best job on the planet, it definitely comes close.

If you spend a lot of time watching TV, this might be the perfect job for you.

Netflix taggers have to watch between three and eight titles a week then tag them with relevant metadata, for example, year of release, language and cast list.

Taggers also have to classify the content in a more subjective manner, such as the tone and spirit of the show.

The information is then used to come up with recommendations on what to watch.

It appears this job will allow you to Netflix, but not chill.
