The Least Stressful Job

Blogskull11 From Jaimee:

I work part-time in a clothing store in the middle of a mall, but I am also a student at 2 local universities (long story) full time, working towards my Bachelor's degree in social work. 

As part of my Sociology of Crime class, I had the opportunity to tour our lovely city's correctional center. It was pretty decent. My class got a chance to visit just about every unit, from admittance to high security. 

This little anecdote happened while we were in the high security unit. 

It really looked like a jail over there--steel bars, boarded over windows, lots of concrete, and burly-looking guys in orange jumpsuits. 

Our group was in the office, speaking with the correctional officers, asking questions and such. The one officer spoke about how he had to "make sure they didn't wreck the place....fun times!" 

Someone in our group asked if he was stressed at work (after all, it's a high-security unit.  And those guys looked scary). 

The officer replied, "Actually, this is the least stressful job I've ever had.  I used to work in retail."

So there you have it!  Working in prison is more relaxing than retail!
 
Keep standing up for us retail slaves,

Absolutely! When someone gives you crap in the lockup, you get to beat his ass. In retail, you have to grin and bear it.

I have a cousin who works in the unit that removes prisoners from their cell when they get violent or lock themselves in their cell and refuse to come out. He was telling me about how much he liked his job, but he had to take temporary medical leave when he started having heart trouble. The doctor told him to stop smoking, drinking and quit his job, it was too stressful. He said he loved his job. It was raising his out-of-control teenage daughter that was causing the stress! LOL!

I had two loyal customers-twins,females,who worked in a men's prison and totally loved their jobs.
They did however,drove home the point that they would never work in a female prison becauase the women are too jealous and whiny.

That guy is mega win, but just like Joe said, you can beat them.
I wish we could.
Or even just one day named "Slap a dumbass customer day."
JUSTONEDAY, that's all I ask.
