So workers in which profession are more likely to end their own lives?
Dentist is the one I've always heard, though I'd also believe police officer and psyhiatrist.
Were a study to be done, however, I'd bet that the profession with the absolute highest rate of suicide is:
Commercial jingle writer.
For some unknown reason, the people at work have started playing the jingle for the old "My Buddy" doll constantly.
My buddy! My buddy! Everywhere I go, he goes! My buddy! My buddy! My buddy and me! (repeat infinitely)
This is driving everyone, including those playing the awful thing, completely bonkers.
We can't get it out of our heads.
Can you imagine writing these things for a living, and ending up with perhaps dozens or even hundreds of them repeating over and over and over and over in your head minute after minute after hour after day after month after year?
It'd have to be enough to make you put a gun in your mouth.
And then wouldn't it be funny if they played all of your jingles at your funeral?
