(Source)- It may sound like a joke Jim would play on Dwight—but you can get paid $1,000 to watch 15 hours of The Office. USDish.com is looking for someone to watch the hit NBC sitcom. The winner gets $1,000 in cash, a Netflix gift card and a bag of Office merchandise.
The lucky applicant has to complete a checklist identifying common tropes from the show.
As someone that has been blessed with doing a job he loves, I would never get jealous for someone else getting paid for doing something awesome. But seriously, how the hell is this even possible? I would guess roughly 80% of Stoolies and 95% of Barstool HQ watches 15+ hours of The Office in a week for zero point zero dollars. Actually no. Those people PAY Netflix their own hard earned money to watch 15+ hours of The Office despite there being roughly a zillion hours of new programming available on TV or the internet every single day.
Which is why this deal seems too good to be true. I don't care that you have to identify common tropes from the show. Those of us that mentally spend more time in the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin than we do in our own worlds would enjoy counting Stanley's eye-rolls or weirdo Creed stories that almost definitely involved him breaking multiple laws. You could have me count how many times people blink in an episode and pay my dumbass in Schrute Bucks and I would still say Yes because if I said No I would be spending my free time just watching The Office with my brain half on instead of fully on. Unless it's during those chunk of episodes where the Sabre people reeeeeeeally sucked, pretty much the entire Robert California Era, Scott's Tots, or the episodes where Andy just became a much less likable Michael Scott. So I guess I'm saying I'll watch anything from the first half of the series for a grand, if not you can keep you money.
