An 88-year-old man in Britain is now accepting applications for the best job in the world -- going out to the pub a few times a week for some drinks. Jack Hammond used to go to the pub with his neighbour, but since moving into a nursing home in order to be closer to his family the old guy hasn’t been able to find anyone who wants to go drinking with him. After failing to find someone at the volunteering agency Hammond put up an ad offering £7 an hour (and free beer!) to someone to chill out with. The ad requests “a gentleman who is not too bombastic and enjoys a nice pint,” and who will be able to hold up his end of the conversation on topics such as golf, football, electrical engineering and the Second World War.
