Working in a school, especially with students with special needs. Compassion goes a long way in life. Also something related to finance. Working in my university’s financial aid office, its horrifying how little students know about money.

Teaching. It’s so hard to understand when you’ve never done it. And I agree with serving too!

 

Haha, tech support makes me think of the story I heard about someone calling to say they broke the cup holder on their computer. Finally, the tech figured out the person was describing the cd rom drive.

TELEMARKETING. Worst job I’ve ever had, and I was in high school. People were horrible!

I’ve worked in retail before, even during holidays and it was a piece of cake! Im sure some places are worse than others. Didn’t pay much though.

Cashier anywhere.  People get impatient with you, even when it’s not your fault but you’re the front line so they always take it out on you without waiting for a customer service rep or manager

Hm… I dunno. I was a server for years at three different restaurants, but mostly what it taught me (which seems to be the opposite of most people for reasons I can’t figure out) is that it is just NOT THAT HARD. Same with working retail, I did that too. I did work in a grocery store as a cashier for a while and that job sucked, mostly because it was so boring and you don’t get to move around. 

But I guess I don’t really think there are any jobs it is important for people to do to “learn perspective” or whatever. What’s the point? Anyone who treats strangers badly is an asshole anyways and working a shitty job probably wouldn’t change that.

@CorgiTales:  I agree.  I never worked in food services but I worked retail and various other phone and office jobs as well as some teaching type jobs.  it’s just not that hard.    I respect everyone who does their job well no matter what the job is.  But if someone is completely incompetent and it’s affecting me i’m not going to have much patience.
