Jobs dealing with food at all. I can't stand them - January 28th 2012, 03:26 AM

I am 17, and I have had 1 job(quit), and starting another job tomorrow, and I really don't know why, but I cannot STAND jobs that have to deal with food in any way shape or form.
I dunno why...
My first job was as a dishwasher. Easy job, but I ended up quitting after a day (almost 9hr shift, no break). I didn't quit because I didn't want a job, but because I couldn't stand cleaning food off of plates and washing food. I hate dealing with food, I barely can stand doing my own dishes...
I ended up wearing most of the food as a dishwasher, and couldn't stand it. The floor was dirty, the plates weren't ever clean when they used them. I wanted to vomit. I pressed through the day, and quit the second I got home. I still can smell the food on my arm today.
This next job is at a pizza like place, kinda like chuck e cheese. I would be doing everything (along with everyone else), but I have this feeling like I will want to quit after a day again. I REALLY don't want to deal with food, but the thing is, thats those are the only places that hire.

Could I be feeling this because I can't stand food like jobs, like cooking, cleaning, ect. or something else?

I can say, I don't even like cooking my own food, and cleaning it, cause I hate getting dirty.

Should I possibly try to find a job as a cashier or stocker? I know our local shields is hiring at 16, and our local best buy hires at 16. Or should I just tough this food job out? I do plan on giving it a week at least.

If you cant stand food - than your best bet is to apply at places like:

Walgreen's,
Walmart,
Target,
Etc,

They hire very often - and you can do things like:
-Stocker
-Cashier
-Loss Prevention
-Sales
-Etc.

Just keep filling out apps at places like these (and for positions not related to food)! Don't force yourself to do something just for money; find a job you can atleast deal with to a certain degree.
