If you happily get out of bed every morning for work, you’re one of the lucky ones — not everyone is satisfied with their current job, says a report published by CareerBliss. The company identified the unhappiest jobs based on more than 100,000 employee-generated reviews between February 2011 and January 2012. Here are the top 5 jobs that make workers’ lives miserable.

1. Security Officer

Average salary: $29,641
Bliss Score: 3.510/5

“People might think that the work environment security guards often face, such as working late hours alone at night, would be what contributes to unhappiness,” Matt Miller, the chief technology officer at CareerBliss told Smith. “However, our data shows that growth opportunities and lack of rewards in this field is what affected the overall sentiment around this type of job. Work environment scored relatively high.”

2. Registered Nurse

Average salary: $43,663

“Nurses . . . have more issues with the culture of their workplaces, the people they work with and the person they work for,” Golledge says.

CareerBliss’ chief executive Heidi Golledge told Smith: “CareerBliss has found through our research that teachers appear to be quite happy with their work and their co-workers. However, the rewards for their work, lack of support and lack of opportunities to be promoted counteract many of the good parts of the job.”

Smith reports that these engineers don’t appreciate the “lack of growth opportunities, company’s culture, compensation and support.”

Angelina Jolie Sued for Stealing Story

A Croatian journalist is accusing Angelina Jolie of stealing the story behind her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey. In legal documents obtained by RadarOnline, James J. Braddock claims that an article he wrote and published in 2007 is the basis for the film, which the mother of six wrote and directed.

Braddock gives examples of the similarities between his work and Jolie’s film in the lawsuit. The lawsuit states that: ‘The Subject Work’s main female character is subject to continuous abuse and rape by soldiers and officers in the camp.’ The outraged author and journalist is demanding that a court awards him damages.

The drama revolves around a Muslim woman named Aija who falls in love with Serbian Daniijel. In the unlikely love story, which opens in American theatres on December 23, Daniijel inadvertently becomes Aija’s jailer when the Bosnians are captured by the Serbs.

Braddock isn’t the only person taking legal action against the United Nations’ Goodwill Ambassador.  The brunette beauty and partner Brad Pitt are also being sued by a former nanny. They allegedly fired 45-year-old Ana Charlotiaux for allegedly taking too much sick leave. She worked on the couple’s French estate, Chateau Miraval, from 2008-2010 and is demanding fair compensation for dismissal.
