I hate my job, and I don't know what to switch to... how screwed am I?

I need a new job, and I need one by the end of the year, because I'm very close to walking out of the one I have now. Help me, hive mind, as I'm at my wits end. What the hell can I do that's in Philadelphia, doesn't require a car, isn't sales, and pays around $30k? [more inside]

Amuse me

I want to find something to do during Winter break (1 month) in the suburbs. I'd like a job where I get to talk to random strangers and perhaps something related to sales.
