What do you think is the worst profession?

I worked in a jail and a prison. The jail as a corrections officer and the prison as a counselor. My counseling office was inside the cell block.

How was it?

Inmates tend to be immature and manipulative. Most of them come from dysfunctional homes, so their emotional development is stunted. Jails have people of all security levels from petty thieves to murderers; the petty criminals caused the most problems. Jails also get people right off the streets while they're drunk and/or high, so there's a lot of vomiting and urination on oneself. Hospitals for the "criminally insane" usually don't have enough beds, so these people stay in solitary confinement if the jail can't handle them. 

I worked in a prison for people who were about to be released on parole and those who violated parole, so we only had fights about once every other month. For the most part, they didn't want to ruin their chance at freedom. It was a program for people with a history of substance abuse.

I've done telemarketing. It's pretty bad, but it's not as stressful as being a dispatcher for a large public safety agency, which is the equivalent of working air traffic control.

Vascular ultrasound technicians sometimes have to put mint under their nose so they are less likely to gag while moving peoples skin folds to find the veins. And then I was gone once I started thinking about the potentially rotten smell of skin “cheese”. Now I’m trying to avoid medical field careers, turns out a lot are not for the easily grossed out.

My 16yo daughter needed an ultrasound due to a stomach ache (thought it might be worse, turned out to be minor), and the ultrasound tech was so happy that she was thin, and it would be an "easy one."  My kid decided right then and there that something in the medical field where she actually deals with patients is a no-go.

She's thinking medical field now, but not anything to do with patients (surgical tech).
