    Or one of those people who cleans the sanitary bins or public toilets. Thank goodness there are people who do this but my nose is too sensitive for smelly jobs. I am so grateful for people who do these jobs.
    Omg me either. My sister and I were driving behind one of the vans who clean the sanitary waste bins and we were commenting about how it would be such a gross job.

    Anything where I had to deal with heights. So window washer, rescue people etc etc.

    I am petrified of heights, so just could not do it.

    Same!

    I could also not be a cleaner at a gym. I dry retch if I have to pull hair out of my own shower drain, so just imagine if I had to pull copious amounts out of gym shower drains! Eughhh! My worst nightmare!!

    Oh and anything in sales. I HATE hassling people! My profession is real estate, but prefer the property management/admin side. I was a sales PA and my boss made me door knock, asking people if they were thinking of selling. I hated every second of that job, especially the cold calling prospecting for sales. Horrible!!

    Lots have been mentioned, sex work, killing stuff, etc. I'm ok with bodily fluids so i could handle.medical stuff.
    I couldn't be.an accountant or.anything to do with maths as I can barely count let alone anything else!
    Also couldn't work on a farm. I'm a city slicker and me and nature don't get along.

    Yep sales and receptionist jobs aren't for me.

    I despise people trying to sell me things and I have the opposite personality that would be required.

    I was a receptionist during uni and quit after a few weeks - it was so incredibly boring and not mentally stimulating whatsoever. No offence to those who are, it's just not for me.

    I also couldn't be a politician...

    Nurse - the more time I've spent in hospitals, the more I realise I could never do this job! Nurses are awesome.

    Prison Officer

    Social Worker

    Aged Care Worker

    Police Officer

    Lawyer - I used to do reception work for a lawyer and it's just so boring! Wills and property stuff.

    Dentist - mouths are gross. Teeth are gross - when my kids have wobbly teeth, I don't even want to look at them.

    I've worked as a waitress and cooked in cafes, so cleaning up food/washing up/cooking etc... doesn't bother me. I've worked as a receptionist and I didn't mind that, I think it really depends on the office you work in and the boss you have. I live on a farm, so death of animals, butchering, fly blown sheep, flies, dust, dirt, heat, mud and just general grot are part of daily life. I couldn't handle an abbotoir, though.
