Waitress.

You see in canada, we are forced to tip.

And people have been funding underrated individuals for a long time.

You can actually make a decent salary from being a waitress in Canada, and you don't have to do much.

But I don't judge, there are a lot of good people who deserve a little extra, I just think it's sad that they rely on tips, because the actual owner isn't responsible for providing actual wages, so minimum wage being what? $11.75, fuck they wouldnt even start at that wage in reality, but yet Ontario still doesn't know what the fuck they're doing.

Like who the fuck actually runs a well maintained and managed economy these days, it's Fucking pathetic at times.

Yes, especially when the job has a glorified title, like when they call the trash man a Waste Management Engineer, or even a nonworking parent a Domestic Household Engineer (I've actually come across someone who tried to pass that off as a paid job lol).

Or a Business Consultant/Financial Consultant << BS titles for people who tell you what to do with your money or business, even if they have absolutely no experience managing their own assets.

It depends on what you mean by overrated. Overrated by career magazines? by stereotypes? by people in that career group? What do you mean exactly? Every job has good and bad parts to it.

Personally I think lawyers are overrated. They're the "super rich sophisticated" job but it must be super stressful because only people in trouble and emotional distress show up to ask for help and then hate you for the bill, and on top of that if you make a mistake in wording a sentence you could cost a client thousands of dollars. They're seen as crooks but in reality bureaucracy just can't run without them and they're necessary for all the important paperwork in society it seems. How did the world get so complicated that we need professionals to do our paperwork?

Wall street bankers. They are known to be super rich, but the fact of the matter is 14 hour days are not uncommon. Honestly, no amount of money could motivate me to do the work of someone on wall street.
