Teacher. I’m really not that good with or interested in other people’s children. Especially not 30 at once!

A carer. I just couldn’t deal with the emotional side.

Nurse. Was one- left the profession.

RyanBergarasTeeth Fri 28-Aug-20 21:39:51

Manager. I cant even manage myself.

Sales - I did cold calling once and I wanted to curl up and die

I would hate to be a baliff.

I'm interested in your reasons?

Teacher. Lawyer. Firefighter.

Kids would walk all over me. Couldn’t represent the guilty. Hate fire.

Traffic warden
Bin man
Flight attendant

Paediatric surgeon.

Slaughterhouse, sewage person, teacher

I would hate to empty/clean porta-loos

Executioner sounds like the pits. Especially since traditionally they probably cleaned up all the body parts, too. I'm bad at many things, though.

Reader1984 Fri 28-Aug-20 21:48:33

Working in a children's hospital. I couldn't cope with the emotion of it all.

Call centre! Worked in one for two years. Gave me panic attacks it was that bad.

I'd love to be a bailiff, maybe that's inspired my next career grin I'd hate to work in sales or marketing

Tomatoesneedtoripen Fri 28-Aug-20 21:51:03

bar steward, too shy and serious and judgmental

DrMadelineMaxwell Fri 28-Aug-20 21:52:33

Anything requiring you to sit at your desk and stare at a screen all day.

VaggieMight Fri 28-Aug-20 21:53:34

Any kind of emergency responder. I'd cry and get shaky voice at most emergencies.

SaltyAndFresh Fri 28-Aug-20 21:57:02

Anything involving poo. I was a support worker when I was 18 - it was just the push I needed to send me to uni.

mnahmnah Fri 28-Aug-20 22:04:39

Anything that involves people’s bodily functions. Or animal suffering.

NothingIsGoing2GetBetterItsNot Fri 28-Aug-20 22:05:58

Cleaning - I have done it but I'm a 100% person (can't pace myself) so just find it back breaking.

Anything solely office-based, couldn't stand just sitting down all day!

EasilyDelighted Fri 28-Aug-20 22:06:58

Any that required me to permanently and completely work from home.

Chiropodist. Ugh!
