What job could you never do?

I could absolutely never be a person who works with feet in ANY capacity.  Not in a salon, not in a doctor's office, not in a shoe store . . . NO FEET.

I could also never stand working on teeth.  I could not be a dentist or dental hygenist or orthodontist or . . . anything that involve me sticking my hands in someone else's mouth. No thank you!

Call center representative or telemarketing. I tried one day and got some teenager on the phone who would never get his parent and we had a rule we weren't allowed to just hang up until an adult came on the phone. Took 20 minutes to get permission from my boss to end the call. I walked out after that, i know people don't like bill collectors or telemarketers but to have a rule that you can't end the call is ridiculous.

Ick. Feet. I hear ya. Nasty, nasty, nasty.

I was going to say anything health care related. Blood - ick. Sickness - double ick. Gross stuff - no way. I'll pass.

That armpit smelling one. Where they have to "test" the deodorant. Sick.

Scientist - that crap is just boring as hell, and I really don't care.

I've done a lot of cleaning in various positions before, so I'm not afraid of that, but this guy we know worked at the local casino as a janitor - nice guy, but not the brightest bulb in the box. He was telling how they have to test all the "areas" in the restrooms (places like the toilet seat cover holders) for drugs and needles and crap like that. Didn't seem very safe the way he said they do it. No thanks to that.

Janitorial services or anything dealing with kids. I have a friend who works intel and her job is basically gathering evidence of child predators. She didn't go into detail but what little she did tell me told me everything that I need to know. The things that she has to look at....couldn't do it.

Health related jobs, nurse, doctor, anything with sick people or where I had to touch people. Also I could never work with kids. I only (barely) have patience for my own.
Cleaning stuff, also not my thing.

Basically I couldn't do anything that's not similar to my job :)

Whatr kind of job do you currently have?

I think I could do health-related things (just not mouths and feet!) . . . and I love working with kids and I don't mind cleaning.

Funny how different people are!

I work in Marketing. I love my job that's why it's hard for me to picture myself doing something else

I couldn't work at a daycare, or as a teacher. Nothing that involves watching kids all day.

I wouldn't want to do anything outside the comfort of my home, but honestly, if push came to shove and I HAD to work to feed my family and keep a roof over our heads, I'd do whatever I had to.

I'm not above anything.
