    Stay at home dad here. Maybe when they say hardest job, they aren't referring to physically hard, because it's definitely not. Mentally it can be a little rough sometimes. Still rather do this than roof in July, as I am a redhead.

    It's not even a conspiracy anymore, people are openly and willingly getting chipped like good little sheep. There will be a time when anyone who doesn't want to get chipped will be made fun of and seen as a paranoid nut case. I mean that's already the case, but it will become mainstream and trendy, like it is nowadays to make fun of the anti-vaxxers. Next it'll be the anti-microchips. It's all so predictable.

    My wife rescued a little ginger cat while I was off camping. Rescued, as in, ran into traffic to save him from getting hit. She never had any plans other than to keep him, despite me saying I didn't want any more pets for years.

    Fast forward, we still have the cat and he chose me as his human. She's super salty about it, too. Karma.

    After watching this, that 12 ton bus lifted above my head in Southern California doesn’t look that hard to work on anymore knowing it’s harder to be a mother I’ll never experience. Dodged that bullet. Also my first dog I found at work. Saved it from getting crushed by heavy machinery. Effort from 1-10 a 5. A cherished companion A1... I mean a 10.

    Narcissist. Mothering and growing other people to become contributing members of society is a daunting task. It is especially tasking when you have children procreated by selfish people like this guy.

      Mothers cook, clean, and look after children. As someone who works in fast food and education I do 10X as much of that as any mother and yet I'm paid peanuts for it.
      Motherhood is important, but its not hard. If you think motherhood is the hardest job in the world you are either A) spoiled rotten or B) a sick, cold person who had no business having kids in the first place.

    Not to sound really insensitive but motherhood isn't a job at all. It is a maternal family title.

    And parenting should be taken responsibly, as it is the future of humanity that is being raised, not a coop of chickens. If motherhood is hard then something has gone terribly wrong. Parenting on the other hand is a serious burden of responsibility that should not be committed to if the task can't be met. I've heard way too many sob stories of single working mothers with prideful chips on their shoulders taking all the burdens of raising their kids alone 24/7. It takes a village to raise a child. If you don't have that village you have to find it. Raising kids in isolation is unhealthy. I don't care where you are from, it just is. This goes for all families, not just moms. Older siblings, uncles, aunts, grandparents, cousins, friend of a relative, step dads, any of it.
    And if that didn't do it think about this: Try running a fortune 500 company alone. Try building a 3000 sq ft house neighborhood alone. Try farming 4400 acres alone. Almost anything sounds like the hardest job if you make it that way. Some parents don't get a choice, but really it's just their pride talking. They'll feel like they failed if they can't do it themself. But that's been an illusion the whole time.
    Bill may be joking around and Oprah might be talking out of her ass, but we got a real problem these days with misguided parenting.
    While we're on the topic of hardest job, I'd have to guess it is CONSTRUCTION WORKER, since they are the most underpaid, valued, covered and have the highest suicide rates. Probably something to do with the economy worldwide expanding majority part time and construction work varying and being dangerous. I don't know though. That's just a guess. I mean, a CDC backed educated guess, but still just a guess.
