Jobs That Suck

I know we've all been there. In a job that you just loathe. That hasn't been the case for me for the last year or so. And I was thankful.

But it seems that I'm having way more bad days than good recently. I think the most telltale sign is when I can't even enjoy my weekend knowing I have to go back there on Monday. It's just a big black cloud hanging over all aspects of my life.

I've already mentioned the Inconsiderate Loser that I share office space with, but there's also the semi-new Condescending Supervisor. CS started over the summer and I thought that after some time and an increased comfort level he would get better. Ha.


I admire people that have the constitution to work jobs they hate. It's not something I'm good at.

And you thought whining was restricted to Wednesdays? Ha to you too!


One more thing, could staring (squinting?) at a computer screen for more than eight hours a day be accelerating the creation of crow's feet around my eyes? If so, add "signs of premature aging" to the list of cons.

I hate that feeling of the weight upon you. It can get to the point where all day Sunday is lost to the dread.

Isn't the busy season on hand now? I was hopeful for you that once it got busier again that time would pass more quickly at least. Maybe in a few months you can start applying to other internal jobs.

Oh my. I stand with you in soul-sucking job solidarity.

I had a feeling you would, Casey. Thanks!

I too know all about soul-sucking jobs! Bleah!

I wish you could find/do something you love away from wretched horrid people.

I think the wrecxthed horrid people are the worst.

Although I have had jobs that the job itself sucked, like sorting mail at Rincoln Annex post office where I thought I had died and gone to hell.

this post didn't show up on my bloglines either.
