Just the thought of some of these jobs make us want to snooze. (No offense, data entry specialists.) Which of these jobs sounds the least appealing?

    I would love to be a librarian!! I don't see how anyone could find shelving books alphabetically according to the Dewey decimal system boring! (Then again, not everyone feels the same intense need to alphabetize everything that I do.)

    Parking lot attendant would be the least likely to put me to sleep. You could test drive all the cars you wouldn't be able to afford though.

    parking attendant sleep test cars afford

    All the others would totally and equally put me in snooze mode rather quickly.

    I have done data entry before... if your focused enough, sometimes you'll wonder where the time went.

    8 hour days passing by.. and I was chewed out more then a couple times about missing my lunches and breaks because I was that focused. But then again my accuracy rate was higher then average so they didn't give me TOO much grief.

    Security guard, I'm not sure this qualifies but I have stood watches on a naval ship, middle of the flippin night, no one around, scanning the horizon with binocs that if I was lucky would show SOME reflection of the stars off of the water, but other then that? Pitch black. Dead frickin nothing to see out there...

    couldn't even light up my a cigarette to help pass the time either. Those were some looooong nights....

    How about a "NONE OF THE ABOVE" option? The job that would do it for me would be the one who has to watch the movies that get submiited for the "Best Picture " Oscar!

    But, not really... a good data entry person can take a lot of pride in their work.

    The worse job would have to be factory work. It's the most mind-killing job I can think of that doesn't require being hip deep in slop.

    Long ago, teachers weren't paid for summer...just for 10 months. So, I'd get a job each summer. One year I worked in a factory that made professional-style hair rollers because the salary was about double the minimum wage. It was horrible! The same few motions over and over and over again...for 8 hours! And, the break room was a 4-minute walk from the machine floor but they counted your 15 minutes from the moment you left the machine. So, every day, you were "charged" 24 minutes for travelling time. I remember thinking that I'd become a union activist if I had to stay much longer.

    There were women there who had done that job for 20 years! I still shudder at the memory.

    Oh, my! I'd love a job where I got paid and got to read all day! And...a whole library to choose from?

    It's a bookaholic's fantasy world, although I do understand that it wouldn't suit everyone.

    or Security Guard, just because it would be boring. Data entry would be easy to me, and would make me be tired, but it would be okay to me and isn't that boring. Librarian isn't that bad because i love books and seeing that many books would be more fun than boring.

    I'm used to it; I work in retail. We have everything sized and color coded, and you would not believe how many people think a large blue shirt should go in the small yellow section. Thank goodness I love organizing and grouping things, or I would go insane.

    Librarian could be interesting seeing all the new books coming in and seeing what people check out. Security guard... at least you possibly get to walk around, Data entry can be fun, it really depends on the job itself, that description covers a lot of different jobs.

    Parking lot attendant, I can not think of anything any more boring than watching cars come and go.
