The Harris Poll released a new survey highlighting the top 10 professions that people respect the most. This list apparently has been coming out every year for 80 years…and I guarantee nothing has changed.
1. Doctor, 88%
Unless you are affiliated with Joan Rivers or Michael Jackson
2. Officer in the military, 78%
And they look so damn good in uniform
3. Firefighter, 76%
Ohh yeaa, I think I just have a thing for uniforms
4. Scientist, 76%
5. Nurse, 70%
What guys doesn’t have naughty nurse fantasies. I keep forgetting this list is about respect. Sorry
6. Engineer, 69%
It just sounds intimidating. When I meet someone and they tell me they’re an engineer, I immediately break down and can’t think of anything smart to say
7. Police officer, 66%
Criminals don’t think so
8. Religious figure, like a priest, 62%
I know you’re thinking of a Catholic school boy joke
9. Architect, 62%
Hey Mike Brady–what do you think of your profession being one of the top 10 most respected?
10. Professional athlete, 60%
Sans Ray Rice, OJ, Aaron Hernandez, Lance Armstrong, Manti Te’o, Tiger Woods, Mark “Gator” Rogowski, Jose Canseco….ahhh there are tooooo many!
