You are absolutely kidding me...
We don't work hard in the Information Technology field? That's probably true for some second-rate call centers where the employees are doing nothing more than reading off of cue cards and hold the title of "Help Desk Agent" and consider themselves an IT professional. If you're referring to 90% of the industry though, employees in the Information Technology field are very hard workers.
Network Administration/Engineering, Software Engineers, top level Technical Support Agents/Analysts/Managers/Supervisors and Project Engineers do not have it easy by any means.
If you can't handle stress, you picked one of the worst fields to even talk about. My advice to you is to quit crying about the life that you made for yourself on this forum and go do something productive. Man up and have some self-respect and dignity and go get a job and become a productive member society. Either that, or grab some fingerless gloves and a cup and go shake it at an intersection and be done with it.
Let's not insult real engineers and lump them in with the majority of IT professionals.
