Ever hear the expression “Don’t quit your day job”? It’s often used when aspiring entertainers look to enter show business. This list is like the opposite of that.
Lucky for these celebrities, their fortune and fame will prevent them from ever entering the pest control industry. That’s a good thing for all of us. Quite frankly, I think they would make terrible exterminators.
Here’s the list:
Willie Nelson: Okay. Let’s completely ignore the things that could get me slapped with an age discrimination lawsuit and focus on the most obvious issue. Nearly all Pest control companies require a pre-employment drug screening. In Willie’s cause, we all know the results of that test.
Come to think about it, I guess Willie could do pest control work in Washington or Colorado.
Floyd Mayweather: As an exterminator, Floyd would find himself in uncharted waters.
First off, he’d immediately need to stop calling himself the “best fighter, pound for pound”. The scorpion, spider, praying mantis and several others would be far more deserving of that title.
In addition, Floyd would have to adjust his fighting strategy. His speed, although impressive by human standards, would be no match for some of the opponents he’d encounter. In fact, he’d often find himself as the slowest fighter in the room. That may be a little too much for “Money” to overcome.
Bruce Willis: Some folks might remember Bruce for his very brief film role as John McClane. He’s been in movies like Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard With a Vengeance, Live Free or Die Hard, and A Good Day to Die Hard.
I’d say he has the killing part down….maybe a little too good…..as in OVERKILL.
Mr. Willis could definitely get the job done, but his product usage would be far too costly for even the biggest pest control companies.
FMC would have to open a new production plant just for Bruce.
Kanye West: With Yeezy, two things immediately come to mind:
1. Any guy that can walk straight into a street sign is a Workmen’s Comp claim waiting to happen.
2. The first time this dude interrupted a company’s employee of the month presentation with an outburst like “Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had the best….”, let’s just say the creator of “the college dropout” would have wished he stayed in school.
Donald Sterling: You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. At the ripe age of 80, Donny isn’t going to change his outlook on life – and that’s a problem.
As an exterminator, you learn to identity different types of ants, but you also learn not to over analyze things. An ant is an ant. Little black ants, white-footed, red-imported – you treat them all the same. It’s a shame one of the most high profile business owners in Los Angeles never learned that.
