Best And Worst Jobs

At some point we have all considered packing in our jobs and trying our luck elsewhere but there are some career choices which seem to consider it more than others with a study pinpointing the ten most miserable, and ten most satisfying, employments. 
Most miserable is the lot of a Roofer then Waiters, Labourers, Bartenders, Packagers, Stock Handlers, Clothes Sales People, Cashiers, Food preparers and Suppliers.
I can understand the misery of most of them, i would not be able to put up with moaning eaters in a restaurant and how much fun can it be serving drinks to people on a night out when you have to stay sober enough to diddle them out of their correct change.  
If you have spent the day on the roof or listening to somebody moan that their soup wasn't of the required temperature, then you could always have a bash at one of the jobs which come top in the satisfaction tables.
You try your hand at joining the Clergy, become a Physical Therapist, Firefighter, Education Administrator, Painter/Artist, Teacher, Author, Psychologists, Special Education Teacher or Operating Engineer.
Until the vacancy as Ben & Jerry's taste tester comes up, i think i will stay where i am.

worst jobs:
military - shooting people sucks, as well as, being shot
police - ditto
auditors - about 95% of your findings are dismissed
innovators - about 99% fail
journalist - you have to lie in almost everything you write

I would guess if you asked a roofer in January you would get a very different answer to the one you would get in July.

well, i was a roofer year round for my 4 years of undergraduate study... i liked being able to see a long way, being in the sun and fresh air, and doing a bit of hard work... but i was 17 to 20 when i did that...


lawyering sucks too - always fixing other peoples problems, have to sue half of them to get paid, deal with people that have done bad things too...
