Hi, I'm new to this community. I'm a college student and I've suspected for some time that I have a mild form of Asperger's Syndrome or Adult Autism. I've never been officially diagnosed as such, though I was diagnosed with ADD (inattentive type) when I was a little girl.

I need some advice about work:

I was hired to be a bartender at a country club and I was told that OCCASIONALLY I'd be asked to wait tables. However, this is just not the case – all I've been doing since I started is waiting tables. Basically, I'm just a waitress that makes alcoholic drinks sometimes. I'm okay interacting with people on a one-on-one basis (such as a person who'd be sitting at the bar drinking...), but waiting tables really stresses me out and these people at the country club are so picky and so demanding and besides that, they seem to take great delight in being condescending/verbally abusive to staff members. These people expect you to bend over backwards for them and no matter what you do, it's never good enough. It's not like they even tip. I don't think that they even understand the concept of tipping after one receives good service. Worst of all, Management won't back you up at all – the managers are too busy trying to save face with the club members.

So here is my question: What are some good jobs (i.e. decent pay and limited or no customer contact) for people like me who are very shy or who have poor "people" skills?

Thanks in advance for your advice. :)
