and disregarding any required qualifications, what would it be?

For me it would be a pilot or an astrophysicist.

    For me it would be a air stewardess. For my partner it would be a teacher (he has undiagnosed moderate dyslexia). Interesting question.

    I met a pilot a couple of weeks ago when I was fishing. He told me he wants to be a police traffic officer because his job was boring. 

    Food taster would suit me

    Great responses so far. :smiley:

    My other idea was army ... all the opportunities sound great. If a commercial pilot is boring maybe then I’d combine them and be a RAF or army pilot. :smiley:

    I believe I had the perfect job before this rotten gate crashed came into my life.

    For 12 years I worked on local tourism.
    In Halifax and I ran the wonderful Piece Hall Tourist Information Centre. We had visitors from all over the world. I learned a bit of Japanese and my school girl French and Spanish came in handy too.
     I also ran the Hebden Bridge centre too. Another chance to meet people form all walks of life.

    Give me my legs back and I`d do exactly the same.....

    I have a few a food critic a travel reviewer or hotel inspector. More serious occupation a lawyer. Or a more relaxed job a sun bed attendant in some tropical location

    I think my son and daughter would be a toymaker or a toy shop owner. Last time we took the twins to the local toyshop at the mall, they loved it. The twin’s bedroom is full of all kinds of toys. I must sell some soon.

    An interesting question,
    1)Nuclear physicist at dawn of nuclear era- no tickling dragons tail.
    2)More down to earth a job with a gold plated final salary pension with an new car every 3 years and a middle class lifestyle with the holidays I could never afford Disney Land USA, Space centre.
    3) A secure lifestyle with no worry of bills though door or dreaded Brown envelope with DLA stopped at any time. Every day I wonder the impact on our children of scraping by.

    Maybe a job where getting a brown envelope isn’t dreaded but in fact a nice bonus, like a politician :wink::smiley:

    Suitcases full of money, exotic locations travelling the world with beautiful women 
    ahh

    Mr Bond
    or 
    A Bond Super Villain and simply liquidation of Bond rather than playing with him and allowing him to Escape.

    How about a Royal-you can race cars, have jet set lifestyles and are a state sponsored scrounger, but perfectly ok as Royalty

    I would go back to my previous job before I became ill, which was working with under 5s either I  preschools/nursery, especially in a SEN role.
    But I would like to do that part time and the rest of the time I would go professional making cards and crafts to sell at craft fares etc.
