Serves the evil Slaughter men right, I don't know how they can sleep at night. I hope they're haunted every single night by every single dead animal they murdered

I always thought being a postman would be cool, but I'm scared of dogs
And hairdressers are mostly lucky cos they're doing something they like to do

I heard that being an air traffic controller is a highly stressful job. And apparently dentists have the highest suicide rate. lol

My Mum's a primary school teacher, and is without doubt one of the most stressed-due-to-work people I know, so I agree with number 2!

Not sure about posties being understressed though. Both my sister and her boyfriend work really hard for Royal Mail and they'd be none too pleased to hear that!

Well I think hairdressing must be stressful, unless you are completely confident.

I'd be okay with all the chat, about this and that, but I'd be so scared of someone's hair going green, burning someones hair off totally and just them being disappointed with what I'd done.

I'd rather be a Chef than a hairdresser, at least I could hide in the kitchen and let the Waiters take the flak!..

I can't believe teachers have a stressful job...what with the numerous school holidays and days off 'for shopping' they are not there long enough to get stressed!

But working with a load of bratty kids has gotta be stressful!
I was talking to a hairdresser the other day and he was saying he loved it, and he had one of those 'Girl's World' doll heads when he was a kid, and it's what he always wanted to do

Brian my Mum works a 50 hour week as a teacher! When teaching finishes for the day at the school she's in govenors meetings, parents evenings, open evenings, etc. preparing for OFSTEDs... and usually doesn't get home until 7pm. She's also working at home most evenings and weekends on lesson planning, marking, etc.

The myth that teachers arrive at work at 9am, leave at 3.30pm and do nothing the rest of the time is completely untrue.

I guess they've never heard of the term "goin' postal"? Means flippin' out - inspired by the number of disgruntled postal workers who have returned to their workplaces with guns to shoot up their bosses and fellow employees in the last few years.

I know many people who work for the post office. The stress of the never-ending piles and piles of mail that go through the system, the long lines of dense patrons at the service windows, the idiot "civil serpent" coworkers... I can understand why they stress out.

My first university degree was in Social Work and my second was in Elementary Education. All I can say is, I'd GLADLY take social work over teaching. Teachers have to be social workers, nurses, speech therapists, guidance counselors, coaches, referees, etc. etc. etc.... They have to deal with bratty kids and even brattier parents. UGH.

We are reaching a stage in this country where Policemen are actually patrolling the corridors of some secondary schools.

Something has gone terribly wrong.

I do appreciate the fact that teachers can feel very stressed, these days.

So, if you had to choose to do just one of the above jobs.

Which would it be?

I think this comes into the 'What d'ya wanna be when you grow up'? category.

I'd still be a teacher --on the whole the rewards out weighted the bad bits.
I used to get great job satisfaction and so did the kids when they ate what they had cooked!

I liked being an instructor in the Navy, but I had military discipline on my side.
I would choose to try my hand at Chef - in my own little restaurant.

I'd enjoy the pressures of being a chef. It's interesting that 'librarian' is listed as NOT stressful.... I can't imagine having to shut up all day, I'd probably pop my clocks.

I know a Librarian who's been away from work for three months, due to stress.

It aint the books or the atmosphere thats stressed her out.

Its the General Public and their attitude, that have given her the problems.
