Now sure there’s tons of undesirable jobs out there (septic tank cleaner anyone?), but I loosely refer to careers that have a certain amount of prestige to them at least, but which you would never want to work at no matter how much they might pay you. Or ones you know you would simply not be good at even if you had the inclination or ability to pursue them.
For me the obvious one is being a physician. My Dad was a surgeon so I got this all the time when I was growing up, but no I don’t plan to be a doctor like Daddy was, thank you very much. Blood and guts even now make me very squeamish, and I’d be deathly afraid that I would make one wrong move with the scalpel and that would be all she wrote-couldn’t live with myself. I sometimes literally feel the pain that the patient feels (if I am visiting or something), and when I was a kid I literally fainted when my mom used that red iodine lotion to “paint” a cut I had. This despite having the mental aptitude (and college transcripts) which would have easily qualified me for the medical school of my choice. Guess I could never get that “detached” from my work like doctors are supposed to get.
That’s the basic idea-so what careers out there just never appealed to you at all?
