I'd say either the Professor or Hermes, as they both have stressful jobs. To that, I'd say Hermes, for he's the bureaucrat for the company and has to organize and do the math.

Welcome to PEEL grapes, enjoy your stay at Nerd World. Take a look at the PEELer's FAQ. Take a bit to read it over. It'll save you from getting on people's bad sides.

Well, as far as we know, Hermes is the only character that has contemplated suicide due to job-related stress.  I'd say that he's the most stressed.

Amy doesn't that stressed to me.  The only thing that probably stresses her is her parents egging her on to give them a grandchild.  I would say Hermes and the Professor are the most stressed characters.  Hermes has too much of a workload to make anyone stressed, Farnsworth is stressed because of having to work with Fry and Bender, and in competition with Wernstrum.

I voted for Leela.  Why?  Because although Hermes has a stressful job, he likes what he does.  Leela needs to take a week off and watch some TV.  Maybe then she'd give Fry a chance.

Well Leela's job seems stressful (and by job, I mean putting up with Fry and Bender) and so does Hermes', but he enjoys it. But poor, poor Kif probably has it the worst.

Kif always seems stressed out by Zapp, but Hermes has a stressing job that he actually enjoys and finds less stress in

Kiff is very stressed.The only time he's really happy is when Amy's with him, and that's not  often.

Well, there are only about three characters up there responsible/non-lazy enough to stress out about their jobs.  Four if you count Robot Santa, but he works one day a year and thoroughly enjoys his job.

Hermes has been driven to the brink of cides both sui- and homi- by his work.
Leela works with the least responsible people in the universe.
Kif works for Zapp.

In picking one for the poll, I'll go with Hermes since he's the most uptight about it.  Reefer is not an effective stress medication.  Leela gets enough stress relief through exercise/hurting people to take her mind off of it.  Kif is simply resigned enough to be used to it.  And for the record, I think they all have emotional problems.

EDIT: Upon reconsideration, I picked Kif, after thinking back to how much Hermes enjoys the sheer monotony and circumscribed nature of his job.  Also, you know he skims a fair amount of money.  I mean, who checks his books?  I'm sure that's enough comfort for him.

How come I was the first to pick Mom? She was the obvious choice to me. Running a major company would take a lot out of you, especially if you are clearly the one who makes all the decisions. She is always yelling and beating her sons. She also has to put up that "sweet old lady" facade, so that she keep her customers. She is clearly the most stressed character.

Kif doesn't seem all that stress to me. It would be annoying to work for Zapp, but not really stressful. Yeah Zapp is incompetent and it wouldn't enjoyable to work for him, but you wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Kif looks depressed to me, but not stressed.

As Nerd-o-rama said "Hermes enjoys the sheer monotony and circumscribed nature of his job."
So he loves what he does.

The exploding robot in 'Insane in the Mainframe' is quite highly strung.

Dr. Z gets very worked up from time to time too.

Out of the choices.....I'd go for Kif. I think his anger manifests itself as misery, if he didn't do that sigh he'd explode.
