    Get into refrigeration, and work for a company that does work at restaurants.

    Working in a kitchen and dealing with all the cooks and managers will make you wish you where on a roof or in a mechanical room by yourself.

    You mean like today changing a compresser in a busy kitchen. Or maybe yesterday changing an ice machine and the head chief saying when do I get ice? Never lonely though. Another good thing, I know where they hide the coffee.

    It's not so bad if you hate people.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I like it that way because I always end up hating any type of normal job where I have to work in the same place with the same people everyday. Never have that problem in a hot attic.

    The "no witnesses" thing is nice sometimes too.
    Never argue with a crazy man.

    Yeah, if I had to work in an office all day, with the same people every day, there would eventually be a news story about a mass workplace shooting in Texas, or a string of mysterious deaths.
