Local teacher tops Dream Job list with Mayhem Zamboni Driver

Recommended Posts

Looking for someone to drive a Zamboni or taste test barbecue? Here’s your man

By Ed Grisamore - The Telegraph



I’ve punched plenty of time cards in my lifetime. I started out as a paperboy, delivering afternoon newspapers (mostly a thing of the past) on my bicycle. When I turned 16, I fried chicken for the Colonel and scooped Jamoca almond fudge at Baskin-Robbins. In college, I stocked shelves at K-Mart in the summer and during the Christmas holidays.

Although writing and teaching have been my callings in life, I often have restless itches to try the sampler platter of vocations.

This certainly is a good time to be in the job market. The jobless rate is at historic lows in many demographic groups. For the first time in what seems like forever, there are more jobs than there are people looking for jobs.

So, I’m putting in my application for a will-work-for-free, no experience necessary gig.

Zamboni driver — I’ve been observing these guys for years. They’re rock stars on ice. They have a one-of-a-kind job. If the Macon Mayhem will allow me a few minutes to smooth the ice on the rink, I promise not to drive it like a tank and cause any mayhem.
