1. Debt. Collector-They gave me a three day trial run at a debt. collection agency 7 years back, and they attempted to hire me after day two since there was a point on day two to where I didn't need any training whatsoever (since my numbers were already getting to be impressive) as a transfer agent. I literally turned it down, with me literally walking out on a couple of offers since I detested it so much. I was literally cowering in fear over the thought of having to pay a lawsuit.
2. Police officer
3. Pilot
4. Firefighter
5. Flight attendant-This would be the lesser of the two evils for me (between pilot and flight attendant). Due to me being disabled, I'd be permanently disqualified. I seem to be good in customer service roles, but I would never be able to save people from dying if the airplane crashes.
6. Teacher
7. Principal
8. Manager/Supervisor
9. Mailman
10. Fast food employee
11. Tech. employee
12. Line cook
13. Lawyer
14. Professional athlete
15. Web designer

Could never do, orwould never do?

If could never, I guess I would have to put pro athlete as well, as I don't think I could ever have developed the physical skill. Doctoral level physicist, because I don't have that level of inclination for math.

If you mean would never, or highly prefer not to do, the list of more prosaic jobs becomes longer.

Truck driver, because I don't like long distance driving.
Therapist, because I don't want to hear about people's problems.
Hi-rise construction worker, because I am afraid of heights.

I don't think I could do any of those jobs except 2...I could be a detective but not a beat cop. I'd be OK being a mail carrier too, and a lawyer as long as I didn't have to go to court or work ridiculous hours. And 14 is obviously not something I could do!

  • Dentist. (I'd rather be a proctologist than a dentist.)
  • Any job in a slaughterhouse.
  • Telemarketer.
  • Babysitter.
  • Teacher. I'm intelligent enough but I'm not good at explaining things to others. Plus, I have little patience for unruly kids.
  • Any job inside a prison or jail.
  • The person who cleans up road kill.
That's it for starters.

I forgot to add Dentist onto my list, and babysitter. I surprisingly don't mind telemarketing.

I could never be a Soldier because I don't take orders from anyone when my life is on the line. I do what is best in my interest, not the interest of others when my life is at risks. Secondly, in general, I'm an evil person when it comes to the opponent, I take things personally and I would wack too many people due to hate.

Of course there are probably hundreds (for anyone), but here are some that come to mind... mostly for physical reasons, since I'm too arthritic for labor or standing-only jobs.

Factory worker
Construction worker
Retail clerk
Veterinarian, shelter worker, or animal control officer (too heartbreaking)
Cop
Firefighter
Anything in the medical field (just because I suck at science, lol)
Telemarketer or collector
Repo woman

Uhhh, what else?

A few more that I'm unable to do:

-Beekeeper-I detest wasps and bees so much (since they are pure evil, and get joy from stinging people), and would probably get fired fast from killing these things intentionally for my own amusement/joy.
-Hairstylist
-Bus driver
