Browner Grass?

http://reflectionsfromthebellcurve.blogspot.com/2012/03/that-greener-grass.html

In my March post above, I fantasized about jobs I thought I might have enjoyed. Recently, I was reflecting on the flip side, i.e. jobs that strike me as thankless. In ascending order of unpleasantness for me:

* Can't imagine enjoying being the person responsible for the HVAC system in a building. No matter how happy some folks are with the heat or air conditioning, there would always be someone very unhappy.

* Being a divorce attorney has to be a drag, don't you think?

* Notwithstanding the Tom Hanks character in "The Green Mile" or the guilt of the people I'm responsible for, I think I'd have difficulty not getting depressed being a prison guard on death row.

What about you? Which jobs make you shudder?

  1. Working in a slaughter house a la Fast Food Nation. For that matter, working in any type of meat handling job. No double entendre intended, although most jobs involving that would also be distasteful, e.g., urologist.
