Anything dealing with marketing. I just can't lie with such imagination.
I loved the military. Now sales - another thing I don't think I could do - but then - I find that I can talk people into doing things - is that good or bad?

Any job where you work with/take care of/have to supervise kids. They'd have to pay me a million bucks a year.

An assembly line job. Spent one eight hour day at a trough as Christmas help at the post office in 1963. Longest week of my life!

Anything in a cubicle or "open floor plan" office space.


Anything with ladders, heights or sewage. Or high heels!

My nightmare job has always been anything that put me in an office all day where a boss who shouldn't be a boss is able to look over my shoulder and make suggestions. Before I started my own company I always worked "out in the field" specifically to avoid that situation. I don't have a problem with authority unless the authority is some clown that thinks he or she knows a lot more than they do. By staying out of the office and turning in my work when the boss wasn't around I was able to avoid conflicts for many many years.
