You have described a situation that indeed does involve stress. But you have altogether missed my point. The article cited in the initial post was an article that listed the 10 most stressful JOBS, not the ten most stressful situations of whatever kind. I would find it very stressful to be encountered by an angry grizzly bear while hiking in Yellowstone National Park, but that would not be JOB-related stress, since encountering angry grizzly bears is not part of my JOB. Similarly, "trying to support and feed a family while being unemployed" is not a JOB. It is perhaps something that is being done by a person who has lost a JOB, who is looking for a JOB, who would very much like to have a JOB, but who DOES NOT HAVE A JOB, and thus can not logically be employed in a stressful JOB.

I am in no way putting down anyone for being out of work. I realize that being without a JOB is a stressful thing. But being without a job is NOT one of the 10--or 20, or 100--most stressful JOBS, because being without a JOB is not a JOB.

Can you perhaps now understand that? Or will you continue to be obdurate and opaque to the logic of what I posted so that you can get in a little dig at "bitter"?
