Stress Free Jobs Print
Written by Mike Noel

My chosen profession can be stressful at times. I'm a software developer. It is a lot of fun doing this kind of work but there are times when it is frustrating and stressful. When I get into those kind of situations I look at people who have jobs like "dishwasher installer" or "tile repairman" and I wonder if it wouldn't be better to have a no stress job like that. But then something happened the other day that made me realize that there are no no-stress jobs.
I took my car into a tire shop to have a tire replaced. My appointment was fairly routine and nothing unusual took place with it. However, another guy was there getting his car serviced. He was done and was trying to check out. I say "trying" because the tire service center staff was having a problem. They had lost the guy's car key. They were in the middle of disassembling the desk where they thought they lost the key. They had already gone through all of the cubby holes and envelopes. Still no luck. Finally they figured that they must have given the key to a different customer. Needless to say, that didn't go over well with the customer who's key was missing.
It was a very stressful and trying situation. I realized right there that even a low-stress job like changing tires can still have it's share of stress and anxiety. Since we can't avoid it. I may as well do something I love. So I'm going to stick with software for a while.
