Want A Weird Job Somewhere In America? Here's Your List

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Most of us have to work for a living, but that doesn't mean we all have "conventional" jobs.

In New York, it was "fortune cookie writer."

In New Jersey, "gum buster" - the professional removal of chewing gum left under tables or on the street.

In Connecticut, the job of "telephone operator" was more nostalgic than "weird," but someone still pays humans to lend a helping voice.
