How To Avoid Getting A Summer Job

By  | 

Maybe you're one of those people who actually wants a summer job. If so, great for you. I'm happy for you. Have fun at the Mc Donalds drive-thru.

But me? I don't want to get a summer job. If you feel the way I feel about it… I've come up with some pretty good excuses you can use to get out of getting one.


Break A Limb

I know this is extreme but if you wanna go for it, go all the way. The bummer about this is that you're limited in your mobility. It's a pretty desperate move.



Volunteer for the political candidate of your choice. At least you'll be making the world a better place, and as a volunteer they can't expect all that much of you. I mean, this chick looks like she's having a good time.


Go To Camp

You get to sit around a camp fire telling scary stories and prank your bunkmates. Way better than a job.


Start A Blog

Who knows what'll happen.


Join A Cult

You're going to have to find a cult in like Texas… somewhere that your family can't find you. There's always the problem of getting out of the cult at the end of the summer… but cross that road when you get there, right?


Get An Internship

Famous Whitehouse intern Monica Lewinsky slept with president Clinton instead of getting a summer job. Way to go Monica!


Visit Grandma

NOTE: This is a last case scenario. The wireless is crappy, there's no cellphone reception, you have to watch a lot of QVC and it smells like stale animal cookies… but there's plenty of food and you can pretty much do whatever you want.



Traveling is the greatest excuse ever. If you can afford it, spend your summers traveling. There is no such thing as a sucky vacation but there are lots of sucky jobs.
