Lot 48: jobs i would hate

jobs i would hate


with unemployment going nowhere anytime soon, juliette suggested that i write about jobs i would hate doing.  there sure are a lot of them but i thought i would stick to 5.  i think it is just as important to know what you don't want to do as to know what you do want to do. 

jobs i would hate

mailman sounds really boring.  and i guess you have to take a really hard test to become one.  which is strange to me that the test is so hard?  but just going from house to house and getting in and out of your little mailman box sounds exhausting and tedious.  but go mailmans of the world! and mailwomen! we need you! 

anything to do with the outdoors  it is pretty well known that i don't like the outdoors, so it is pretty easy to assume that i would not like doing anything with the outdoors.  that would be an absolute nightmare.  i like parks, the ocean, and that is it.  that is the only nature i like.  

anything to do with animals  i'm not a huge animal fan.  i like big dogs, penguins, dolphins, hedgehogs, bunnies, and that is all.  horses are cool.  but i wouldn't like to spend my day working with them or taking care of them.  like if i was a worker at an aquarium and had to feed them dead fish.  uggghh that makes me shiver in disgust.  i would not like that. 

social worker  it would be really hard for me to watch families break apart and see bad mothers and fathers and deal with putting them in foster homes, sometimes bad foster homes.  i don't think my heart could handle that.  i think i would just be depressed all the time.

medical office receptionist i imagine that job would include people calling to yell at me because they realllllly need to see the doctor because they are really sick and there are no openings and i can't get them in.  i would feel so bad for them.  and also, we've all done it, been waiting for our doctor for like a half hour and then you get annoyed and ask the receptionist what is going on and she says "oh he is running late today" that would be hard to deal with.  and i imagine there are patients who are really really b****chy and that would just be exhausting to deal with that all the time.

what jobs would you hate doing?

also, don't forget to link up with me and emelia TOMORROW to share some self love and contribute to a positive uplifting community.

  1. My uncle worked for the USPS for many years and it's SUCH a hard job, and I've been behind the scenes at a zoo and HECK NO...I totally agree, both of those jobs would be out for me too!

  3. Great list! Honestly, I could never be at teacher! I admire people so much who are teachers and very passionate about it. Just the thought of me having to stand in front of a room with 20 + faces looking at me...and "teaching" them! ... Hah, it'd be the joke of the century ;)

  4. I work in a medical office right now (kind of) and it is terrible. But! If the people are great, it's a little more bearable.

  5. I am afraid of horses and large dog so nothing to do with them, I can't stand for more then a couple of minutes before the back pain sets in so nothing that involves standing or walking more then say a 100 metres carrying stuff can't do that either but you know what is funny I was just outside pegging the washing on the line and I started to think of jobs I would be unable to do and I come in sit down to read some blogs and what is the first one I go to about jobs I would hate

  6. Oh my gosh I don't blame you for not wanting to do some of these jobs! I love animals but working with them seems extremely overwhelming!

  7. Totally agree with you on all these jobs... Let's throw telemarketing in there too ;-)

  8. I am with you on many of these being a big fat old no. One thing that makes the mailperson job even more N-O is you often have to deal with not happy dogs. Getting bitten and chased are actually things that happen fairly often. I don't think so.

  9. Anything to do with the outdoors, yup, no, park ranger is my worst nightmare!

  10. This is a really interesting list! As much as I like to be positive, I think it's interesting to figure out our "least favorite" things because it makes us use our brain in a different way. You have to think backwards, you know? Anyway, I agree with a lot of these. I actually was a social worker for 5 years, though, and that job can mean a LOT of different things. I worked with a population of mentally ill adults, and it was extremely hard work but I ultimately loved it. I did have people tell me everyday that they "couldn't do it", though. I think that every single job requires a special kind of person, which is why I'm so glad we get to pick what we do!
