I've had enough of stress at work and would like to run a Pound shop. It would be easy to add up and work out the change. The pricing would be a piece of piss and if you hack off a customer who gives a fuck. You've only lost a pound.
What would be your perfect job and why?
Cemetery Groundskeeper or Cemetery Proprietor. You'll meet lots of people, enjoy a decent amount of quiet time and be able to take long meditatve walks along well manicured paths & reading material on headstones which can stir the imagination. I did that a long time ago & still have fond memories & feel at peace when strolling through a cemetery.
If that isn't what you'd like, then get a job in sanitation. Meet lots of interestiing people, drive the streets, get free furniture! A spiffy uniform! You'll need strength as a sanitation worker to lift the trash cans & other things into the truck. As an added bonus you'll see & hear birds at the refuse center fighting for a feast. In many places there's also a generous retrement package.
