Professional Sleeper

It seems we can pay people to do anything for us these days: walk our dogs, build our furniture, organize our homes ... cuddle with us when we're feeling lonely. That's right: You can hire a professional cuddler to snuggle with you for about $60 an hour. Listen to our podcasts about weird professions and you might start thinking of quitting your job!

People engaged in this work are the luckiest people alive. At least that's what I think. They get the chance to sleep and be paid! How is that possible you asked? Well, the professional sleeper job is important for the following reasons.
Those who work in this field are employed by researchers and doctors. You know all those studies that you hear or read about sleep? Well, for them to get all that information, they need to study someone who is sleeping. That is where the professional sleeper comes in. His heart rate and other conditions are monitored whiles he sleeps. The researcher is then able to draw conclusions at the end of the day.
Also, they are employed by hotel managements to either spy on how hospitable their employees are or to check the comfort of their rooms and beds. They sometimes spend about a month sleeping in different rooms within the hotel and as soon as they wake up in the morning, answer a questionnaire on how comfortable their sleep had been. Another way is when the professional sleeper blogs about his experiences at the hotel. This is a very unique form of advertisement. This enables the hotels to test their products and improve on their services.
Aside being able to sleep and still get paid, professional sleepers earn about $30,000 a year! Would you quit your job now?
