What are good jobs for socially awkward people?

I hate that I have social anxiety. I have been a SAHM. Not much experience in the working world. I am also not good with numbers. I literally go blank when it comes to handling money and giving someone the right amount back. I hate handling money. I am fine purchasing things, but making change and trying to count it in my head trips me up. When it comes to selling things for my kids fundraisers I count and recount over and over always afraid I don't have the right amount. It also takes me longer than others to count in my head because I will usually draw a blank or miscount. My kids are in school now, money has been tight so I am wanting to find a job that I can be good at and make decent money.

Mabye something over the phone? Like a call center for customer care, they call you not the other way around. No one knows you over the phone.

I have the same problems, but the computers at most places, tell you how much change to give back. Factory work is good for someone that has social anxiety, at least it was for me.

Wouldn't suggest a lab if you're not that good with numbers.
A call center maybe, how are you over the phone?

Or on the floor in a department store, not cashier. Like a stock person. Putting new items out, stuff like that
