    The title says it: I recently got a pretty sweet sidejob. My friend Jesse originally had it, but he passed the torch down to me when he went away to college (like 30-40 minutes away )

    Pretty much what I do is feed a cat for a wealthy lady (she's very nice, too.) The house is in a nice neighborhood and has a nice view. So all I do is go there (on my my way to/from school) and pay attention to the cat, feed him, and give 'im some new water. What does this average of 12 minutes get me? 12 bucks.

    So I get to have a relaxing time with a nice view, feeding and paying attention to a pleasant cat and get payed an inordinate amount of money for it. Considering that I go almost every day (scheduled,) that cash adds up pretty fast. My first check is what helped pay for a lot of the new computer stuff I just bought.

    Anyone else have tales about hitting paydirt?

    I once got paid a lot to reset a nice womans circuit breaker. She was more than happy to pay the bill and I was more than happy to recieve the payment.

    I've been offered to have a job as a tutor, but unfortunately my rents said no because our schedule is so erratic.

    People have paid me to distress, bleach, and rip up their jeans. What can I say? I'm a fashion savant .

    Wouldnt call it paydirt, but I got to babysit 2 dogs and 2 cats at y house got paid like 200 bucks for a week... the cat was a demon! It wouldnt come out from in the closet (under the stair well I sleep in the basement) And She pee'd all over down their... and uhhg... It riipped me and my moms arm's off and hid in the rafters under the Floor boards...

    but The money was kinda worth it...

    heres the opposite of paydirt...6 dogs(4 adult and 2 puppies[big ones]), one week, two times a day, and had to give medication to the oldest dog for allergies. they pooed all over the house and the puppies peed in their cages so i had to clean them everyday. i only got 50 bucks for it.

    lol Looks like I'm pretty lucky because my job is not only easy and pays well, but it's consistant, too. If I work 30 days a month I get 360 bucks. AND it's under the table, so I don't pay tax on it.

    On top of it all, I can still get a "real" job as well. I'm keeping my eyes open for something that doesn't completely suck.
