About This Quiz

Oh, the typical 9 to 5. After a while, doing the same thing five days a week, four weeks a month, 11 months a year, gets boring. Sometimes, it's nice to do something a bit different and unconventional because being in a cubicle just does not cut it. So today, we want to find out which not-so-normal job you would have... you know, if you decided to walk out tomorrow. 

Will you be a fire lookout? Do you have focus and are you detail-oriented enough to warn everyone when a flame may be threatening their territory? Or are you more suited towards being a fishing deckhand? Besides the fact that it pays well, it's quite thrilling being out on a boat all day. Maybe you'd prefer being a tricycle mapper. This job is only for those who are incredibly fit and don't mind traveling uncharted territory. Or would you prefer the most comfortable job ever? Do you think you could warm someone's bed for a living? 

If you think you've got what it takes to be any of the above, then go ahead and get started on this quiz. Is your fate destined to be fishy, or will you be warming lots of people's beds? Let's find out!
