As far as thankless work goes, parenting reigns supreme.

No matter how many dirty diapers you change, how many snotty noses you wipe, or how many kicks to the back of the driver’s seat that you endure, those little balls of energy never seem to thank you (and to be fair, the super-young ones physically can’t). That said, if you’re a mom or dad, you know that all those smiles on their pudgy faces make every second of it worthwhile.
