I am tired of dealing with people

What's a good job that has minimal people interaction?

Nighttime grocery stocker or custodian? That's pretty much all I can think of at the moment. I know how you feel. I was formerly kind of a telemarketer, and the company told me they were all warm calls so it should be easy, but of course it was some scam in collaboration with snagajob.com and other such websites. It really turned me off of anything over the phone or in customer service.

Some type of computer job that you can do remotely? When my wife was in grad school, we had two friends whose husbands worked from their living room 40+ hours a week with a company back in their home towns 1000s of miles away. They never even needed to go outside. In fact, we only met one of the two husbands the entire time we were there!

Hazmat decontaminations and/or trauma cleaner.
Containment laboratory work (BSL-3)

Simply put, you're working where most people can't or don't want to go. I worked in a pathogen lab for years; with the exception of a project period when I had an assistant, I spent 8 - 9 hours alone.

Car Thief, there's another job that has minimal interaction with people.
