To some people, the 'perfect job' doesn't exist. We all manage to find something that makes us despise going to work, no matter how good the job might seem to outsiders.
Perhaps perfection is impossible to find in certain careers, but if that is the case for you, you're just in the wrong profession.
For example, instead of a nine-to-five in an office, or lugging bricks around a construction site, you could be that lucky bastard who spends his Fridays as a professional beer taster.

Meantime Brewing Company is looking for someone to join its team on a part-time basis to try its new products and give feedback. Think Barney Gumble from The Simpsons but on a wage.
Obviously it's not a case of being so far gone that 'any old shit will do', or walking into a pub and asking for the cheapest lager, so you will have to know your onions.
You'll have to be passionate about beer, too, which I'm sure most of you are, but you'll also need to know about hops, wheat, malt and all that stuff that the casual boozer might not consider. You'll also have to understand the market, which is more than just knowing which will get freshers tipsy the quickest.
The job advert says: "Have you ever dreamt of being paid to drink beer? Well, that could soon become a reality as we're looking for beer lovers to earn a living, tasting new and innovative beers. Yes, this could just be the best job in the world."

You'd only be required to work three hours each week, on Friday mornings, but is there a better way to start the weekend? The salary is 'competitive... with beer benefits', of course, which is effectively pre-drinks for a day drinking session.
If you wish to apply, Meantime Brewing Company explained how on LinkedIn. The message read: "Please write a 30-word post on LinkedIn as to why you should get the job. Feel free to use video or photos and be sure to include the hashtag #pickmemeantime on your LinkedIn post, too, so that we can see your entry! We'll then review your profile and shortlist 3 candidates for a final beer-tasting round."
The question, really, is why haven't you already applied? Go, go, go.
