teacher is a given, same with banker.

Consultant is pretty ambiguous though.

Teachers have it easy..

Try being the guy who has to wipe the snot off the keyboards and screens....


Big can of lysol in my cabinet, and the industrial size hand-wipes in my desk drawer.

I would have guessed the guys who have the responsibility of cleaning up after any joint sessions of Congress, or any place politicians gather.

that presupposes that lawmakers are organic and sentient beings capable of supporting symbiotic or parasitic life.

Nurse here.
My hands stay cracked and dry from washing them 50-60 times per shift.

Hand sanitizers don't work? Nitrile gloves too expensive I suppose at that rate.

Actually, I do wear nitrile gloves, but we wash after taking them off.
They just changed to a different soap with a moisturizer, so maybe this will work better.
If you have a really bad time, they will prescribe Cetaphil soap for you.
Believe it or not, Udder Balm (for cow udders) is the best thing for dry hands.
Sounds crazy, but it works great.

Radio DJ????

I guess from all the sex in the DJ Booth and the Payola money (not as much as a Banker handles per day but close).

wait, a hooker is safer than a lawyer? (I do understand the TV producer, with all that slime and all....)
