Stress

Eih. It's not stress like a brain surgeon or a pro golfer or a hedge fund manager. There is urgency to the job but it's more of a day-by-day urgency. You just don't get to plan vacations far in advance. And you can get phone calls in the middle of the night if you cover foreign accounts that are managed by individuals who are, well, rude. "Stress" isn't a great word for this gig—maybe "nervous" or "marathon-y" or "starched."
