From programming to poop scooping

Here's an idea for what to do if your coding job gets sent to India: become a "dog butler." According to a Reuters report yesterday, Steve Relles lost his computer programming position about three years ago and now makes a living scooping up dog droppings.

Although this change in professional status might seem demeaning, Relles sounds like he prefers the new line of work. "It sure beats computer programming because it's flexible, and I get to be outside," he's quoted as saying.
