Akane, Canada
What is one job that you would hate to do? Well, I suppose one job that I would really hate to do is to be a homemaker, and I know that this is a very important job, and a very respectful one but I don't think it's for me. I really get irritated when I stay at home for long periods of time, and I know that many homemakers do go out, but..., and I really do like making my own money and that's something that's really important to me.
 

Barbara, Australia
One job that I would really hate to do would be, to be a salesperson. Having to convince people to buy something, probably which they don't need, and they can't afford. I would really hate to do that. If my income depended on selling, I think I would probably starve.

Naomi, Australia
One job that I wouldn't like to do is a office job, completely in the office, all the time, 9 til 5 , five-days-week office job. I think I would get really bored after a short amount of time, and I would probably need a bit more excitement in my life out of my job.

Simon, Canada
Yeah, hi, what job couldn't I do? I think that to sit in an office cubicle and do data entry on a computer would be something that I hate the most because the lights are usually fluorescent. You're crunching numbers all day, everyday with no creativity, no energy, yeah.

Mark, United States
Ah, one job I would hate to do is I would hate to be a garbageman, a garbage collector. I just, ah, it's gross, it stinks. I don't wish that job upon anybody basically so, that would be my last choice for occupation.

Ruth, England
One job I would hate? Oh, yeah, that has to be a vet. I would absolutely detest that job, because primarily I would get really emotionally involved with all of the animals and then if any of the animals died I would cry and cry and, yeah, I would hate having to see people upset because their cat was ill. No, I associate that as being a really awful job, and I have real respect for people who do it.

Un trabajo que odiaría? Oh, sí, eso tiene que ser un veterinario. Sin duda detestaría ese trabajo, porque en primer lugar yo sería muy involucrado emocionalmente con todos los animales y luego, si uno de los animales muriera, lloraría y lloraría y, sí, odiaría tener que ver a gente triste porque su gato estuviera enfermo. La verdad..., lo veo como un trabajo realmente horrible, y tengo verdadero respeto por las personas que lo hacen.
