What I wouldn't do for the money

I often think about what a writing teacher once said to me - you can define something by describing what it is, but you can also define it by what it isn't.

In that vain, here are some careers I cannot imagine myself ever doing:

Accounting - I am interested in learning the rules, but when it comes to steady application of them, I'd be bored and would eventually begin to ignore them entirely.

Assembly line work - in the same vain - incapable of managing order for an extended period of time.

Nursing - I have a high regard for vast amounts of personal space and if anyone steps into my hula hoop ring, I start feeling like a victim.
