Have you seen the report on the most stressful jobs in America?  The Department of Labor ranked them according to how common high-stress situations and high-stakes decisions are.

Urologist” is #1.  Then it’s film and video editors, anesthesiologist assistants, judges, and telephone operators…  or if you’re looking for the LEAST stressful job in the world, be a messenger or courier.

The fun part of a list like this is seeing where your OWN job ranks…  and according to the results, I have a pretty stressful job… of the 873 jobs listed, “radio disc jockey” is 145th…  so what I do is more stressful than 83% of jobs.

Here are a few jobs that are LESS stressful than disc jockey:  Store security guard, embalming dead bodies, airline pilot, border patrol agent, TSA agent, disaster response coordinator, captain of a boat, drive-thru worker.

Someone who handles and detonates EXPLOSIVES… and finally, operating a NUCLEAR POWER PLANT is slightly less stressful than what I’m doing right now.

I need a raise.
