Reuben Reynoso Gets Paid To Jump On Beds
Now if you are thinking you never get to have fun at your job, and you wish you were a kid again, check this out. In San Francisco, one lucky guy gets paid to jump on beds. I wish I had that job.
Reuben Reynoso works at McRoskey, which is a a handmade mattress factory in San Francisco. His job day to day is literally to jump on top of three mattresses a day. He gets paid to jump on 3 beds a day. Apparently there is a science to the reason he jumps, they jump on the beds inorder to compresses the cotton in a way that machines are incapable of doing.
“This is not a game,” Reynoso told the Chronicle. “Not to me.”
The jumping process isn’t easy to do, either. Too little bouncing and a mattress won’t fit into the machine for its final sewing. Too much jumping and the cotton becomes too compressed.
He jumps to shift the fabric around, which exposes lumps and other imperfections and takes his job very seriously.
“It’s work,” he says. “This is not a game. And, it’s not for everybody. There is a right way and a wrong way to do it.”
How could there possibly be a wrong way to jump on the bed?
