Yeaaaaah writer isn’t on there! SUCK IT ACTORS.

For some reason I interpreted “gaming cage worker” as “person who runs a game at a carnival” but that’s not what it is.

@Anna Jayne@twitter I was going to ask if anyone knew this one. Anyone? All I can think of is someone who cleans up after a cage fighting match, the blood and stuff. But that would be a fighting cage worker….

@Anna Jayne@twitter I had to google it. I was thinking of something similar!

@sintaxis I’m not sure if I should be embarrassed or not that I knew what the job was almost immediately.

Okay, so. Do I count as an unemployed actor or an employed admin assistant?

@thatgirl this is a really good point. it is very easy to be “not employed as an actor and actively searching for work.”

@thatgirl Do I count as an employed editor, or a person “not employed as a penguinologist and actively searching for work”?

I can say that 100% of the boilermakers I encounter are employed in getting me drunk.

Also, no listing for wizards, pornography historians, or penguinologists.

@stuffisthings Y’know I thought I had my dream job until you pointed out that I could be (not) working as a pornography historian. THANKS FOR RUINING MY DREAMS.

I want to know what a gaming cage worker is, but then maybe I don’t . . .

Strictly speaking, the advice in the post title should be quite easy to follow if the information in the post is correct.
