I worked in a prison system for 20 years in an administrative capacity. I would say that being a corrections officer has to be one of the worst jobs for a variety of reasons. It depends a little on where you are but the "clientele" seems to detract from any positive aspects, the pay is low, hours and schedules suck, and there is little public respect or recognition.

Accountant. Doing this work would have driven me, and my clients, nuts.

As a farm kid I need a daily dose of sunshine / 16+ hours / day - all daylight hours.

Any day-shift job would have killed me.

Con't imagine being indoors while the sun is out... That's what lights are for (perfect for Libraries, schools, indoor businesses...)

Can't farm very well at night. (That is when us farmers work night shift jobs to pay for our 'habit'. )
