    I did the realtor thing for about 4 years, made decent money, after the 2nd year... I was looking for an out.. I was a dream crusher, I was not a tour guide. This was back in the 1980's the loan people and I came up with a concept for us that worked. Pre-approval. Burnt out, sold Lincoln's for a few months, I did well but hated lying to people. Then it was back to real estate as a certified residential appraiser and there I have been since 1995 :)
    I could not be a teacher, my degree is in history, I could not teach as I am not PC.
    I am too old to be a police officer
    I am not stealthy enough any longer to be a sniper.
    Could not be a nurse, again it is the PC thing.
    Politician, it depends on the position... I would confuse the fuck out of both sides of the isle.
    Baker, does not pay enough, however, I could do that job.

    Oh nothing in the cannabis industry that involves human contact... Now if I could just propagate, make clones (not rooted cuttings) I could do that all day long.
    I think the worst job would be moderator of any board... OH dear god... they deal with people like me!

    Any job dealing with the general public. I would probably lose it nowadays. Last job I had dealing with patrons was Starbucks 17 years ago. That place made me hate people.

    For what it's worth.....I dislike coffee, especially Starbucks swill, but I did go there years ago to get a limited edition Alanisse Morissette CD. No coffee of course..

    There are countless jobs that I just couldn’t do. Pretty much anything behind a desk would drive me crazy. Also being a linesman. Especially one of those guys that climbs a couple of hundred feet into the air. No effing thank you! Although it’s fun to entertain the idea. My palms are sweaty. How about an old Timey coal miner or asbestos minor? Or those bad asses that used to build sky rises with no harness!

    I'd be happier working so far away from the public that they'd have to pump the sunlight down to me. Hat's off to the folks that can pull it off ~ working with the public is not something I could do . . .

    In all honesty when I was a service plumber that was the wildest time of my life! The stories I have to tell from those years should be in a book, I mean I saw it all. These days I sit in a cubicle staring at data and chicks in office skirts but I miss that freedom. Might sound dumb but if I ever became a millionaire I would be a free plumber and take care of people who can't afford it.

    I couldn't do another sales job. I could do retail now that weed is legal in CA. You guys mentioning Circuit City are cracking me up, I bet that place was unreal to work at, I hated walking in there. I couldn't do law enforcement, my brother does that and it damn near turned him into a doomsday prepper. He thinks everybody is a scumbag who should be locked up and hes probably right most the time.

    I’ve done the garbage collector and food industry gigs.

    Garbage collector was a pretty sweet college summer job. Worked on the back of a packer for one of the wealthiest towns in MA. Came away with a working stereo, laptop and graphing calculator for school. Plus it was pretty sweet holding on the back doing 45 down Rt. 9. Maggots in the your hair when a barrel breaks.. not so much.

    Food industry.. well there’s a reason I walked away from a QA manager gig and still have a CYA folder in my closet. Moved to generic drugs, not sure which one’s worse.

    As for a job I couldnt do.. surf instructor. You’re out there sitting on your board watching people drown, getting crushed by waves all day and complaining why they can’t catch one. Tried teaching an ex of mine how to surf; relationship over.

    Ever climb up a roof in the IE Summer dragging a Spartan 300 or a Gorlitz? :rofl:
    That's about the one thing I don't miss about plumbing but only in Summer. One time I had to park next to a house in Riverside and put an extension ladder on my box truck just to get on the roof. It was sketchy as hell.

    Another time i had to hit a roof with a 1065 Spartan, problem was I didnt have a helper. Good news was it was near Basswood and Santee, my old stompin grounds in Riverside. I went around the corner and offered my buddy 2 tall cans to operate the Spartan from the ground while I shoved it down the vent. Eventually it stopped spinning and I hear AAAAAARGH! i walk to the edge and see my buddy all tangled in cable :rofl:we got the line popped and I did a 60' pull the next morning.

    Another time my buddy got sent to IHOP on University and they had a blockage upstream front the grease trap. I was towing the Jeter back to the shop so I headed over to let him use it. Fucker busted the tee off the inlet and we had to replace it. Next thing you know I'm hanging from a ratchet strap attached to his bumper while he backs up slowly so I can drop into the grease trap and install a new tee with a fenco and some 4". It was wicked shit! He bought me three pitchers at Lake Alice that night.

    I'm down with the desk job now :D I was too fuckin risky as a plumber.

    I could not be a nurse tech or CNA. They don’t get paid enough to change some of the nastiness that our body can excrete.

    I couldn’t be a corrections officer with the forced hold and mandatory OT and not allowed to take cellphones in with you, would be hard and boring IMO.

    Once Reduced.jpg in the summer in San Diego I was headed to work one afternoon ~ it was hot like hell out ~ must have been 100* or more. I saw the roofers doing a 'hot mop' job on the school house and thought to myself ~ hey, my job at the sheet metal factory's not so bad after all. I did a career in sheet metal fabrication in a dusty, dirty and noisy shop as far away from the public as I could get ~ and that was fine with me ! :)

    Yes. I wouldn’t be this either. They get IOU’s when there isn’t money.

    ......cleaning up after a gut rendering truck spill would suck.....worse than being a gut rendering truck driver..but not as bad as dealing with rotted guts once they got dropped off.....

    Oh yeah, plenty of roofs with the Gorlitz. Always tried to leave it on the ground and just lean a pipe onto the side of the roof. Then run an extension cord with the pedal up to the roof. I don’t miss that. Now I work for a school district so we have a little more protocol with safety. But I remember being down in those grease pits, I don’t miss that. But it was kind of fun in a sick way.

    Once we had a job at a Macy’s department store. We had to replace all the roof drains. We were up in the ceiling with 2 x 12 planks as a runway to get everywhere. Then we had extension ladders up to the I-beams so we could set pipe, beam clamps and hangers. Starting the horizontal with 3 inch cast working our way up to 6 inch. Two ladders and two guys to carry the pipe up to the top of the extension ladder, leaning on an I-beam. Tying into what I remember was a 10 or 12”cast vertical. All very sketchy but super rewarding and a feel of accomplishment when we were done.

    Department store restrooms are some of the worst. Disgusting! People flush their underwear and packaging from the items they try to steal down the toilet.

    I used to put the vacuum pedal under tha machine and work a pair of extension cords on the roof to turn it on and off. I used the 2" pipe up the roof trick too when I could. Sketchy shit.

    Department stores were always bad news, but was always bad news for them. A big store in Hemet called weekly and that was payday. I have to pull that toilet to dislodge the packaging, and then I have to rebuild that sloan. By the way I looked around and you have two other toilets in need of my assistance! I'd walk away $900-1200 in revenue in less than two hours every time.

    Another job I couldn't do: Walmart door guy who hits your receipt with the highlighter. Maybe when I'm 70.

    I worked for an insulation company in Southern California as a temp once when I was 19 years old.
    Job went like this:
    Day 1: Forman- put this suit and mask on while we put you in a bag and spray lung irritant in side it.

    Forman “Do your lungs burn”

    Me “No”

    Forman “Ok climb up in this crawl space”

    it was the pacific bell building in down town Los Angeles in the middle of July 90 degrees by 8am and 100+ degrees by noon.

    Forman “I need you to bag the insulation up into these bags then double bag it when you come down.”

    In my head WTF!
    Me “Ok... “

    Lunch break I said “hey is that shit I’m bagging asbestos.”

    Forman “Yep”

    I said “I’m not putting that suit on again and going up there it’s 150 degrees in that crawl space and I’m in a fucking suit with a respirator on”
    He laughed and said “ok”
    He had me rolling some fire putty and placing it around wires going from floor to floor for the rest of the day. Who knows that was in that putty.
    I showed up the next day.

    Forman said “I’m surprised you showed up most of the temps come for a day and we never see them again.”

    I said “I’m not one to just quit but I’m not putting that suit on again”

    He asked “do you know how to operate a jigsaw.”

    Me “Yes sir”

    For the next few weeks or so I was cutting sheets of 1/4” metal into templets within 1/8” of the wires and some other kid was putting the suit on and some other kid was rolling putty.

    Didn’t take more than a couple of weeks before I had enough and I didn’t show up on a Monday. I had 2 messages on my phone from the Forman. First one said hey wondering where you are it’s Monday 430am job starts at 4am.
    Second said don’t bother coming in your check will be mailed to you.
    Only job I just said F it and didn’t show up to or call in. I would have called but the Forman had said most people just don’t show up and we know they quit. Figured he’d get the hint.
    One of the worst jobs I’ve ever done.
