Bizarre Jobs that Actually Exist

4. Professional Apologizer

How hard is it to say, “I’m sorry”?

It doesn’t matter, because you can hire someone to say it for you. If you live in Japan that is. The country has agencies that staff professional apologizers. And they can make some decent cash too. The company Shazaiya Aiga Pro charges $240 for a face-to-face apology and $96 for one over the phone.

Yokohama Benriya Natchan’s rates vary depending on phone consultation. They also offer “apologies while crying.” So, theater majors are welcomed to apply too.

According to RocketNews24, the methods of these apologizers vary and 40 percent of the clientele consists of young women. One typical scenario involves an agent pretending to be the client’s father. The agent would visit the client’s not-so-significant other to tell him that it’s over – in the nicest way possible of course.
