a cushy number

cushy number

A job that is easy, stress free, and typically well paid. Primarily heard in UK. Since I got this cushy number managing a toy store, I've gotten to sit around playing with toys all day. Since Sarah got that cushy number with the bank, she has been driving a sports car and is buying a second home! I get to work from home and spend a lot of time with my kids, so it's certainly a cushy number.
