Age: 25
Job: Ferrying golfers to floating island 14th green at Coeur d'Alene (Idaho) Resort Golf Course

\n"My job title is putter-boat captain. It's fun. I get to be in the sun and socialize with lots of people while getting them to the green. Golfers tell me, 'Gosh, you're a good driver.' I say, 'Yeah, I have skills.' But they don't know that the boat is on a cable, and I simply push a lever. [Laughs.] I've seen groups lose up to 10 balls. Sometimes they're grumpy, so I cheer them up with a bad joke: 'Know why they call it golf? Because the other four-letter words were taken.' I'm not sure about career advancement. Maybe I'll be promoted to putter-boat admiral some day."
