I’m not a lover of children, particularly en masse, and particularly when they belong to other people. Therefore, being surrounded by and responsible for 30 of the little buggers on a daily basis is my idea of hell.
I am a terrible flyer, really REALLY don’t enjoy it at all. So being a pilot wouldn’t be for me.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are doubtless some perks here. But seriously, all that tedious ‘duty’ (can you even IMAGINE how BORING all that smiling, nodding, shaking hands and looking interested in things you couldn’t care less about is?) must be awful. Not to mention the fact that every single thing about you from your choice of shoes to your eyebrows is written about and criticised in lengthy and graphic detail by the media. No thank you!

I don’t like dogs at the best of times, and just the thought of having to pick up dog’s poo in my hand (notwithstanding a plastic bag barrier) in order to dispose of it in an appropriate waste receptacle makes me retch, frankly.
Yes, I should probably say Dustbinperson, but I’ve never yet seen a woman doing that particular job, so I’ll stick with ‘man’. I think it’s an awful job, particularly now that they only empty the waste bin once a fortnight, and we’re not allowed to put the rubbish in sacks, it has to go directly into the wheelie bin – which in summer is effectively like an oven. By the time emptying day comes around, the whole bin is crawling with maggots – disgusting. Those poor men have to spend the whole day dealing with these health hazards – it’s a horrible way to have to earn a living, and I take my hat off to them.
Are there any jobs you’d really hate to do? I’d love to know.
