What Job Would You Never Do?

To relax, sometimes I scroll through the YouTube videos to check if there is anything interesting to watch. I usually like crafting videos. A few minutes ago, I noticed a weird video in the list: "Crime Scene Cleaners" (Real Life CSI) I clicked by curiosity, but I closed the video immediately after. What a horrible job to do! After the police and coroner have gone, someone needs to clean up the mess. I hope that at least they are well paid. This made me think what jobs jobs I would never do. Surely not the above mentioned, but also not surgeon, nurse, anything involving blood and nothing that needs to stay in narrow closed spaces. What about you? Is there something you would never do, no matter how much someone you would pay?

That work as a cleaner would be heart breaking in many cases. I had some farmer friends once and they introduced me to some really difficult work. But for me I don't think I could do many jobs that people seem comfortable with. Like for example if I couldn't do food server. If someone complained roughly about the soup I might not accept it. So need to give credit to those that can do it day in day out.

I agree that this would be a heart breaking job. There are many I could not do. I am not a very patient person, I think it would be hard to serve food and stand there listening for complains.

@LadyDuck I suppose like everything they do get nice customers and it makes their day. I guess all service industries seem to be demanding that way. I took care of abusive people while on computer help desk but it was the really nice people that made you want to come to work the next day.

I wouldn't like that one either. I wouldn't be a trash collector. I would hate to smell like garbage at the end of the day, and I understand that one is well paid. Though I do like to see the trash collected.

@just4him They are lucky in your country, in most countries it's a job that does not pay well, because they do not need graduate people to do that.

And if we look after children we do it. Even a job to look after people's animals while they are out working would require picking up what the big old dog leaves behind. Oh yuck!

Your discussion kinda' reminded me instead of an article I've read about the most unusual jobs in the world. They're unique and interesting, quite weird though like the professional fart smeller.... hmmm and I don't think I can ever do that job! Here's a link I found in the net, this isn't the exact article I've read but this is similar.
Have you been thinking about making a career change lately? If yes, then why not think outside the box a little? It turns out that there are loads of obscure yet well-paying jobs out there, just waiting for the right kind of person to take up as thei

@LadyDuck Sometimes they just catch the chickens but don't dispatch them, however, it would still be noisy and smelly..chicken farmer in general wouldnt be too cool but my uncle made big bucks with a chicken farm..but I think he quit that to own his own tool and dye.

Sure would not be a trapper of animals for fur or a beater of those baby seals in Canada for their fur. Any job that involved brutally killing animals due to humans wanting something from them would be horrific to me.
