My work is that of a mystery shopper. I am paid for visiting certain businesses and conducting a shopping experience at each store. Then I file the report online and receive a payment for having done so.
Many of my shops are for Sonic Drive-Ins. Since I am not able to eat all the of the food I am obligated to purchase, I choose to give much of it away.
