They spoke to professionals from 14 different sectors and found that legal professionals are the most downtrodden when it comes to their work, with eight out of 10 people who work in law saying they find their job boring. Accountants also feature in the list, with 67% of all people polled saying they found their job dull.

The only thing I love more than spending all of my money on clothes is singing along to musicals at parties. Neither are very good for my social life.When not doing either of these things, you'll most likely find me abroad, posting pictures of my feet on the beach or my cocktail in a pineapple. Not annoying at all.
