I flip flop pretty often on this...
Most: Cake decorator, I really want to own my own cake/cupcake shop!
As a back up plan I am considering nursing but that is more because of job stability, pay and the variety of positions than my love of it.

Least: RETAIL, my god how I hate retail, it is everything I don't like. Crowds of people, loud, boring, bleh.

Most: Funeral Director - it's what I'm supposed to do & I love it.

Least: Anything else? :P Any job dealing with life/death situations I probably couldn't do (EMS, doctor, lifeguard, etc). I wouldnt want to work in retail, in a cubicle or with food. I wouldn't be happy working alone or in a large corporation.

My job is perfect and I love that not everybody can or wants to do it. Each day, family, situation & funeral is unique. Could have a four hour day or a fourteen hour day. Could be outside at a cemetery, parking processions, in the prep room, doing printing on the computer, cleaning, washing cars, setting and taking down the same 100 chairs, directing a service at church, getting up at 2am and going to the house, answering phone at 4am, meeting all sorts of families, planting flowers, etc. I love it all. It really gives one a different outlook on life.

Most desired? Virtually anything with dogs. If I could get paid to do rescue work I would pick that in a heartbeat. Training, grooming, vet stuff, nutrition. Dogs are what I'm comfortable with and they're my gateway to comfort with humans.

Least desired? Anything heavily sales or commission-based. I am just a terrible salesperson.

Most-Something that would incorporate reading, writing, editing, researching all day everyday...passionate about literature...unfortunately the publishing industry is struggling.

Tenured Professor teaching English and/or Political Science.

A musician, but a legend-to magically have had a career and still be a point of reference for other legends, if they were interviewing Beck, Clapton they would say I influenced THEM...and even though I'd be older than G-d I'd age Leonard Cohen, he's out on tour again drawing crowds of all ages...compared to poor Bob Seger, still has the voice but a pic of him in Rolling Stone looked like Kid Rock had to help him back up.

Least-A trucker, not the loading and stuff but driving, driving is stressful, boring, I'd hate doing it for a living, nevermind the deadlines or trying to park a big rig. Parking an SUV...

Most: medical, horse/dog training, landscaping, real estate (those are some fields I've been in and liked most) (Oh and I enjoyed teaching piano lessons, but not sure I'd love it now)

Least: any kind of retail, anything boring or too repetitious. (been there, done that too) I like children, but wouldn't have the energy or patience to deal with them these days...not on a regular basis anyhow.

I like being retired (or semi retired) the most though. It gives me time to write and do other things I like to do.

Most desired: Dog trainer/Animal behaviorist. Ideally, I'd like to have many best-selling books, and a TV show, and publicly degrade Cesar Millan in every way. I would like to develop force-free methods that are doable for the average American family & prevent dogs from being needlessly abandoned, abused and killed.

Least desired: Doctor/Surgeon. I would just... die... if I had to see the insides of a person right in front of me. I have no problem with blood, but I feel like if I regularly saw naked people, touch people's genitals, and handle people's insides every day it would make my life really weird. I feel like I wouldn't look at people the same, and I'd lose all the romanticism of humanity. I'm some one who is VERY private about personal things, I get uncomfortable talking about normal bodily functions! I don't have enough sympathy for people, especially rude, whiney people, to deal with all of the stress and disgusting duties involved in health care. I don't have a problem doing so for animals.

I would also never work in food service. It's way too hot, laborious and boring for me... and I wouldn't get paid enough to stand people complaining about food/drinks. People are so weird about their food. If some one complained I would seriously be like, "it's FOOD, bitch... eat it!" I also only eat to survive, for the most part. I will eat delicious food that's made for me but I won't go out of my way to make anything. I have zero passion for cooking! My bff is a chef and loves to cook and thinks I'm crazy. He has also cut himself horribly like 20 times. He's cut the tips off 3 of his fingers (they grew back, but ewww)!

<3 Erica, Gonzo & Fozzie

Is this 'money not an option'? I wouldn't work at all, have horses and dogs, and would have fun with them all day.

I think I would like some animal related business someday...boarding kennel or something.

What I AM going for is respiratory technician for the money and stability.

Least favorite is fast food. And serving probably...I have/would deliver pizza. In a non snowy place.
