A doggy pooper scooper?
Don't laugh.
These people make good money picking up after peoples pets.
Just go around the yard, pickup, and collect the money.

Some sort of behind-the-scenes library work, like cataloging, processing, or technical services, basically anything outside of circulation or reference, would be ideal for you.

Cop.

Well, you have to deal with the public, but you don't have to be nice.

And occasionally, you can (justifiably) smack 'em upside their heads!

medical transcription is a decent field but it is definitely not easy to learn.

I have no idea, since even if people get on my nerves, I would go out of mind, without people!! I am not into dogs, cats, fish!

I like horses, to ride not to talk to!

I like buyers of my services, i.e. customers, since they keep food on my table, but I prefer to pay someone else to deal with buyers!

The problem with customer service jobs, is that sellors or sellor's agents don't get paid commission. If customer service people got commission they would be more enthusiastic.
If customer service people who deal with complaints or technical help got a percentage on top of their salary, they would be more enthused, especially if they along with top management got to interface with RD and came up with solutions that really solved people's problems!! Make it more of a team effort!

Having 100's of people complaining all day is no picnic and obviously any sane person would burn out quickly!!

Plus the system is set up all wrong! They need people on the ground, where people can bring their problems instead of trying to handle it over the phone!! I think face to face interactions cuts down on some of the anonymous complaining frustration! Plus it would increase people teaching each other, so the lines would get shorter since knowledgeable people would talk to those less knowledgeable! And then finally honesty! Let people know that you only have one tower in their neck of the woods and that service will be spotty and adjust their price accordingly. Get rid of these two year "I got you" plans!! etc., etc..
