Anytime you work with anything dealing with people, you're going to get bad attitudes- a lot of them- all the time. I'm starting to realize that.<br />
<br />
Factory work, truck driving, distribution/shipping/receiving, construction will get you out of the lines of fire... (or go government and work at the DMV! They don't have to give good customer service there ;-) J/K of course)<br />
<br />
There are the ideas of working up the corporate ladders in retail/business- you know, start at the bottom and work your way up... That's hard. Although that used to work, it doesn't so much this day in age. People want to see the education. "can do" and "can't do" mean very little now... those little diplomas are the only way to get hired. <br />
<br />
also, remember that the economy's awful before you go leaving what you've got- especially if you're in a situation where you're supporting yourself.<br />
<br />
Side note here, if you are pressed to change careers and you're tired of bad attitudes, **avoid anything in the foodservice industry** TRUST ME (or watch the movie Waiting) :-) <br />
<br />
Do yourself a favor. Get a degree/GED- spend a year looking for scholarships, apply to every one of them and GO TO COLLEGE.<br />
<br />
Best of luck

Don't work with people unless YOU hire them. Even then there's no guarantees. Work with things. <br />

I agree with Starr Ravena except for one thing, if you choose to go to college, don't just get a Bachelor's. If you're going to spend the money and time and stress... Get the Masters or Phd. A Bachelor's doesn't hold much weight anymore.
