[CNN] Hairdressers are the happiest people

http://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/eu...ess/index.html

LONDON, England -- Hairdressers are the happiest workers, while civil servants, social workers and architects are the unhappiest, a new poll shows.

Two out of five hairdressers said they were extremely happy in their job, according to a survey of 1,200 employees by UK qualifications body City & Guilds.

I don't need a study to tell me that hairdressers are gay.

Two out of five? Does this mean they only polled 5 hairdressers? Otherwise wouldn't you say 2 out of every 5?

Obviously, SuperCuts was not in the survey. Every one of those employees is depressed, suicidal, and is talking about leaving. In fact, that's why I stopped going there.

I could buy this because people always spill their dirty laundry to their hairdresser. They probably get a healthy dose of "hey, my life isn't that bad afterall" on a regular basis. Plus, the good ones pull down a lot of dough and get to set their own hours.

We are not all depressed, suicidal, and talking about leaving. I, for one, am only depressed and suicidal.
