Which is harder to deal with, mental or physical exhaustion?
It's the end of the month/quarter here, and it's a super stressful time for a lot of folks. I work in a sales office environment, and when things get stressful, I can't help but consider a job that lets me shut my brain off. Manual labor mosly sucks to do for a living, and the long term costs to your body can be high.
What option would you take, working 50-60 hours a week in a competitive field or breaking your back on a highway crew?
