Even in paradise you need to take a vacation ever now and then. Floyd Forbes hasn't taken a day off in eight years and like most small business owners, it's tough to schedule that time for yourself.  But the owner of Floyd’s Pelican Bar, a unique floating oasis off the coast of Jamaica is looking for someone to run his bar while he takes some time off. You may have heard of Floyd’s Pelican Bar, which has been rated as one of the best bars in the world, mainly due to its location in the Caribbean Sea, just about one mile off the coast of Jamaica atop a floating structure that is only accessible by boat.  Floyd built the bar in 2001 after spending years enjoying the scenery and it’s so popular, he's been working it for most of that time. Applicants wanting to fill in must be willing to commute by boat or paddle board, even when the weather is a little too beautiful to go to work, manage the music playlist to ensure chilled beats are playing at all times, throw the occasional fish to the resident pelicans, who gave the bar its name, welcome passing boats looking for a refreshment with a smile and be able to multitask – it can be tricky to hand out beer and appreciate the glistening turquoise water at the same time. If you are picked to fill in for Floyd, you'll receive roundtrip airfare to Jamaica and a seven nights as well as a paycheck of $1,200 (tips not included). If interested, you must apply by May 28th.
