Speed Round 109: A Job You Wouldn’t Want

(Psst — Katie here. The reason I laughed when I was talking about a job where animals get hurt is because inside I was thinking, well DUH, Katie, who WOULD want that kind of job? …I feel the need to point that out in case anyone thinks I laugh about animals getting hurt.)

Now… You tell us: what’s a job you could never do (and why)?

    Honestly, I don’t think I could work with the elderly. I’m much better with little kids.
    Not that I don’t love old people. It’s just that little kids are less likely to call you ’sweetie’.

    Well, I have worked with the elderly, some even had *alzheimers*, and it wasn’t too bad.I also babysit, its kind of annoying especially if the children are full of themselvs(and they usually are), but I don’t think I would be able to work in the ER because I get very queasy around blood and there are just something that aren’t meant to be seen. That, and I HATE needles!!!!!!

    Wow. Working with older people.. Don’t think I can do that one. xD
    I just love kiddies. Their too cute & have a whole lot of energy!

    I wouldn’t want to work in any job that involved blood. I am super squeamish around blood and needles and stuff like that I suppose I could never work in the medical field.

    I would so not want to be a garbage collector. I think you all know my reason when you see the word “garbage”. I wouldn’t want to be a plumber, either.

    Also, to add to my comment, a nuclear decontamination tech.

    I would never want a job in an office, like a real office with the cubicles and the boring hours in front of the computer. That would suck.
