You might never have given it a second thought, but what job would best have suited a vampire through history?
I'm thinking "Barber".
Blood letting was considered a menial job; doctors (physicians) would consult, then determine that bloodletting would help the patient, then delegate that procedure. Who did the actual cutting? Yes, you've guessed it.
Sometimes many pints of blood were bled from the patient over a few weeks.
The traditional red and white striped barber's pole holds a deep, more macabre meaning.
Red stripe; the blood. White stripe; the tourniquet used to stem the flow.
Oh, and the pole idea? The stick put in your mouth to bite on. Yup, it was painful.
So... a barber would be a 'perfect' day job for a vampire.
