From Charmin, $10,000 to meet people in Times Square toilets

October 20, 2009

Want to earn $10,000 working in Times Square this holiday season?  No, no.  Not that way! Rudy BATHROOM NEW YORKGiuliani cleaned all that up.
P&G’s Charmin toilet paper has a different job for you.  The company is looking for five “Charmin Ambassadors” to work in its portable rest rooms in Times Square this holiday season.
The people must be “super-fun” and “enthusiastic.”
The job description: “Greet and entertain bathroom guests.  Then blog about the experience.  All candidates must really, really enjoy going to the bathroom.” 
Except for the blogging part, I think my 15-month-old would be perfect for the job.

I heard about this on Kathy Lee and Hoda this morning. I would love the opportunity to do this. I live in North Georgia and would love to spend the holidays in New York City greeting with “love the loo”. How do I apply.

Except for the blogging part, I think my husband would be perfect for this job. He always manages to entertain me with the goings on in our bathroom…much to my dismay.
