I'm not sure if any of you remember my post earlier about interview advice, and anyway it's not that important. The important part is that I got the job (so thanks for all your advice).

Anyway. Fisrt off, I didn't really know what the job was for. I posted an application on a site called workforstudents.com, and these people called me. The receptionist told me to come to the Sheboygan Sun building, which is a newspaper, so I thought it would be a sort of secretarial job. But no. Apparently, I'm supposed to go to people's houses and try and convince them to buy CutCo cutlery. ...traveling salesman not exactly what I had in mind for summer job. At the time, I was too surprised that I actually got the job to say anything about it, but the more I think about it the more I really don't want this job. I'm terrible with confrontation (one of the reasons I don't want this job, actually), so how should I tell my new manager I don't want this job? I considered telling him my parents won't allow it (which is semi-true, they don't think I would be good at it and so think it's a bad idea, but really they wouldn't stop me), I considered telling him I got in a car accident and my car was totalled and I won't be able to get it fixed 'til the end of summer, I considered blowing him off and never answering my phone when he calls. Tell me, TQC, what would you do? What do you you think I should do? (if the two are different, tell me both.)
