Fancy getting paid to watch grass grow?

By Wendy Williams

IT might just be the world’s most boring job.

But a gardening company in Madrid is actually offering a payment of 2,000 euros to watch the grass grow.

Husqvarna, which makes machines for forests, gardens and parks, wants to promote its latest product, a robot lawnmower.

It claims the automatic grass cutter needs no human intervention and the new employee will effectively just have to watch the grass grow in a park in Madrid for the month of May.

The company has stipulated that the applicant must be long term unemployed and between 25 and 35 years old.

More than 400 people have already applied to be the ‘grass guard’ who will also be expected to relate his or her experiences on Facebook and Twitter.
