A new survey looked at the most stressful "life moments."  And we're not sure we're on board with the results, because a few big ones didn't make the list. Like "Getting a knock on your front door when you're not expecting anybody." or "Having to call someone who came to your 8th birthday party that you've only ever met once and tell them 'Thank you'". 

Divorce and the death of a loved one did NOT make the top ten. 
But somehow, a dead PHONE BATTERY did - and it's not even #1!. Here are the top ten most stressful life events, according to the survey:

1.  Losing your job.
2.  Moving to a new home.
3.  Planning a wedding.
4.  Getting married. 
5.  Starting a new job.
6.  Having your phone die when you're lost.
7.  Having a child. 
8.  Interviewing for a new job.
9.  Meeting your significant other's parents for the first time.
10.  Doing your taxes. (They didn't teach you that in High School...)
