TV cricket commentator: always summer, nice venues, presumably some pretty nice accommodation when you're overseas, getting paid to talk about the game you love, half an hour's work and you hand the mike over to someone else for a bit.

I'd be brave and sacrafice myself on the alter of cricket commentary.

Golf commentary looks even cushier. They mainly just report what we can all see from the scoreboard whereas cricket commentators are expected to see LBWs etc

Anything in the public sector if a few posters on this forum are to be believed.

Some public sector jobs (having worked in the public sector for a few years)

Dude, how is being a firefighter cushy? It's more dangerous than most jobs for a start.

Unfair, a lot of them suffer from tennis elbow and back problems, too much snooker is hard on these areas

Editorial staff at Runner's World. Just copy and paste whatever you published at this time last year, and the previous year, and the previous year...

Not really - it's not like you get to choose which ones you want to look at.

Vicar ? Just 2 hours Sunday morning

Only 24000 a year though but all bills paid for and a rather large house

But genuinely work 50 odd hours a week, but if you look at stats usually Priest comes top of job satisfaction! Which I'd have to agree

Or Train Driver, 40-50 grand a year to push a stick backwards and forwards

ok I was exaggerating but it is a pretty cushy number, which is why it is relatively difficult to get in.

Four days on, four days off. Which is actually two days and two nights on, so most of that time is spent asleep or playing darts.

For an unskilled profession the benefits and salary are fantastic, not to mention the pension. and everyone will want to sleep with you.

contrary to popular belief, firefighters don't 'run into burning buildings' either. almost all fires are tackled from outside in a controlled way. as it should be.

It isn't that dangerous either. I think statistically it is about the 26th most dangerous profession in the UK, way after nursing, farming, roofing, fishing and manufacturing etc etc.

Firefighters are great, and do an excellent job. But I'd swap places with them in an instant.

I've always quite fancied being a monk. i can see the attraction to that lifestyle. apart from the whole 'believing in god' bit. is that compulsory?

That would add some intrigue

I work in the public sector, and today I had to pick up fox poo.  

Apart from that, I actually had a lovely morning running relaxation sessions for our Year 5.  More days like that please
