Yesterday as I was leaving the K99 studios, I looked up in the sky and saw two men on the radio tower just outside our building. It's a couple hundred feet to the top of that thing, and they were suspended in mid air at the top of the tower by a couple of straps. I could not do that. I just couldn't.  It would scare the crap out of me. It got me to thinking though; what are the "Top Five Jobs I Could Never Do?"


I could never do a job where I have to climb a tower more than 30 or 40 feet. I would get dizzy and light headed and would frankly be scared to death.

I really don't like to fly. I have a bit of claustrophobia. Tight spaces are not my thing. I always feel like I am running out of oxygen on an airplane. I always have that little bit of air blowing on me when I fly. I could never be a pilot. Besides the tight quarters, there is that thing about having a couple hundred people's lives in my hands. It doesn't interest me at all.

3. Doctor/Surgeon

A doctor is another profession I have no desire to pursue.  There are so many reason. First there is an incredible amount of school involved. I could never pass all of the classes.  Then there is the blood and guts and vomit that come along with the job.  Hower, the biggest reason I could never be a doctor is if you screw up, someone could die. I never want that responsibility.

Do I really need to explain why I don't want to be a snake charmer? I hate snakes. It's plain and simple. I hate them as much as Brian Gary does. I just don't make a big deal out of it because I am always worried someone will bring me a snake.  (By the way don't try that. There would be serious repercussions.)

About the only thing that creeps me out as much as a snake is a dead body.  I  don't like open casket funerals. I don't want to stumble on a dead body.  And I certainly don't want to be the guy that says "You may now view the body".  Then there is the grieving families. I can't imagine being around people all the time that are devastated with grief. I think I would be crying all the time.  I honestly can't can't think of a worse job.
