They should not.
However, the final episode of Season 2 of Breaking Bad isn't too far off. You need to be in the right frame of mind at work every day. Distractions big or small are better left at the door. One mistake, and lives are at risk.
You need to be right 100% of the time. There is no such thing as being 98% efficient. If I work 100 airplanes in an hour and smack two of them together, I was 98% successful that hour of that day. In most professions, you'd get a bonus for reaching that goal for 365 days in a row. Think about the consequences of that happening everyday in air traffic.
All this aside, it's a fun career.
