If salaries were based on the amount of bullshit you have to deal with everyday, which profession would make the most money?

  1. Facilities maintenance workers, no one thinks about them. People enter a building expecting the lights to come on and the building to be clean without a thought of how. Everything a person does within a building on the day to day makes some one else’s life harder. God forbid the lights in the hall don’t all work or the floors were not mopped the night before, because Karen at the receptionists desk will email half the world about it until you can’t sleep due to all the notifications you get on your phone at 8am.

  2. Any fast food worker. Or nurses. Nurses do not get paid enough, espscially taking into account the past couple of years. Surrounded by death, every single day. I swear, nurses should be provided with grief support therapy.

  3. Cops. I’m sure this is going to be a real popular answer on Reddit (/s), but in reality, think about how much everyone is constantly lying to you to get out of a ticket, or explain why the neighbor who called the police on you for domestic abuse is really not a big deal, or why it is actually an emergency why they are driving 100 mph on the freeway, etc. When you deal with people who are lying to you all the time and generally the people not doing what they should be doing, I can see how that eats away at cops over time.

  4. Teacher here. I go from one pile to another. Students that refuse to do work, students that can’t do the work, students that go out of their way to cause trouble, parents that don’t help at all, parents that blame you for their child’s poor grades or behaviour, parents that expect too much, admin with impossible demands but lend no support, other teachers’ stress/judgement and on top of all that, most of the public sentimentality is horrible towards the profession.
    I have been a paperboy, shelf stocker, retail (floor), fast food, general laborer, factory worker, carpenter and owned my own small business. Teacher definitely deals with the most bullshit out of those gigs.
