Between manual labour and mental labour

youngsters attach much importance to their occupations,most people longing for office work instead of street vendors and drivers.why? if u walk in a street and meet an acquaintance,he/she asks u:"hello,what's ur job now". u rise ur head and answer proudly:"i serve as a casher in Communication bank"."oh,what a good job,this is my calling card,we should communicate with each other often." on another condition:"hello,what's ur job now",u answer embarrassed:"i do some sellings such as soybean milk","o....i am afraid i must go,i am busy,goodbye" what exist between manual work and mental work that makes the former superior to the latter?

I don't think manual work is any more superior to be honest, as both do hard jobs, just one makes you physically tired, the other makes you mentally tired! It depends what you are good at - I'm not a manual worker as I'm not good with my 'hands' if that makes sense! I prefer to use my brain which works much better lol!

I don't think it is anything but mentality that makes it that way. It is close minded people that feel that way. Sometimes one can't really relate because they don't understand, but it shouldn't make one superior to the other. Each is good in its own way. It is sad to feel that way.
