What's Something That TV Shows, Movies, And Books Get Wrong About Your Job?

I mean, is the delivery room always THAT dramatic?!

Media — we love to consume it! But sometimes TV shows, movies, and books just doesn't accurately reflect reality, especially when it comes to something as simple as a JOB.

Freeform

For instance, as someone who has published a book I LOL'd hard when Ryan from The Bold Type canceled his book tour and then was like, "My publisher just rolled what they were going to spend on my tour into my next advance." SURE, JAN.

Maybe you've experienced this too! For instance, perhaps you've worked as a barista before and noticed the lack of chaos that goes on behind-the-scenes when you're making people's coffee during the morning rush.

The WB

Or maybe you work in the medical field and have a whole bucket of complaints about the way birthing scenes are handled in movies versus how they are in real life?

Hulu

Or perhaps you're a teacher and have some qualms about how media shows students behaving in class versus how it really goes.

Fox
