Sign Twirling

Oct 18, 2008

I was doing some furniture shopping this afternoon, and on my way back from the store, noticed two guys twirling signs out on the highway. Kinda like this guy:

So I got to thinking, how horrible a job must this be? You stand out on the street for who knows how long, looking like an idiot. No one can read the sign because it's spinning around so fast, and even worse, no one knows in which direction to go if they could read it (again, because it's spinning around). Talk about your dead-end jobs. I can't imagine there's much of a career opportunity in this line of work.

Has anyone ever done this? If so, what did you think? Were you as embarrassed and lonely as I suspect?

If no one can read the sign, I wonder how there is any cost-benefit to the company paying the sign twirler?

Yes,i have done this job before and YES! it was a little embarasing standing on a corner twirling a sign that i know people could care less about. When my friend told me it's mindless work and their willing to pay $14.00hr. Standing on a corner doesn't seem half bad. Just plug in your i-pod and jam till the day was over. I think its worth doing a little something for the weekend extra $140 for ten hours.
