What is Your "Dream Job?"

Disabilities: I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was 8 years old. Although I soak up information better than the average person, I'm not very social -- and I do things that (according to my parents) aren't very normal. I can write my thoughts, but can't talk to people very well. I guess it's cool that I'm here then. My parents are even here to help me out.

That seems like a dream job to me. LOL! Unfortunately, I can't find a job that can entrust me to take people's cash at a register. :( The economy is bad and it seems like they're trying not to hire anyone that has disabilities. I've been trying for months now just to get a part time job and no one's called me back. My parents have even tried talking to the managers. Cut-backs. *sigh* :(

I also want someone to pick me up after I've yelled "I've Fallen and I can't get up"

Everybody's going through that right now, disabled or not. Hang in there; things will get better eventually.

Yes, unfortunately at present, employers can pick and choose because so many are looking for work.
