    so a lot of people hate to work (if you enjoy your work, might as well press the back button now).. that's a given.. but i was wondering how much ya'll hate your jobs?

    me.. within an hour of leaving on friday, i'm already wincing at the fact that i have to come back on monday.. all day on sunday, i look at the clock thinking "only __ hours til i have to go back."

    I've felt that way at a lot of jobs. Especially when I was a car courier in this city that is outrageous to drive in.

    And towards the very end of my 3+ year stint as a projectionist, even though I liked the job, I started to get almost panic attacks on the nights before I had to work 14 hours shifts (twice a week) running 6 movie screens on equipment that was built, in some cases, over 70 years ago..

    believe it or not..i've learned to love it.

    it sounds corny, but if you go to work everyday with a bad attitude/outlook on your day, it's definitely gonna be shitty. I've been going in with a pretty positive attitude and just letting customer attitudes or employee tudes roll off my back.

    now.. on the other hand, other jobs i've had, like circuit city, that shit sucked and i started gettin annoyed on the drive there..

    the last job i had i kept on staring the clock down every good 30minutes.
    it wasn't even a bad job i just rather not have a job at all. i rather live with no job.

    when im out traveling its great...when i get back to the office i hate it and cant wait to go home and relax. it is what it is though...i have a nice car, a house, and i can spend money without having to stress about it. work is shitty but i cant get enough of the money.

    i have a love/hate relationship with my job.

    1. - i get to tell people what to do.
    2. - i have a 2 minute walk to get to work every morning.
    3. - nice fat discount on stuff, including a 5 finger discount for anything pocketsized. i've got a fat collection of pocketknives,
    4. - i know a lot of my customers, and a lot of them are great people.
    5. - i've been there forever, so i've got hella job security.
    6. - i get cheap store demo products/display shelves/etc.....(if anyone lives around kc and wants a krylon rack, gimme a holler. i've got one taking up space in my room)
    7. - i'm the boss, which makes me feel like a big tough guy, even though i'm not at all.

    1. - i'm the one who gets to calm down irate customers.
    2. - i'm the one who gets to fill in when people call in sick.
    3. - i get paid the same whether i work 40 hours a week or 60 hours a week.
    4. - i have to deal with an asshole DM.
    5. - i can't have a beard (asshole DM)
    6. - i get to relay messages from the asshole DM to my employees, and they all have a tendency to shoot the messenger.
    7. - all of the general bullshit that comes with being the boss.

    so yeah, i could go either way. i never imagined myself working at a hardware store, but i guess this is where i ended up.

    edit - whoa, that dude above me said the "love/hate" line too. creepy.

    Dream job.

    Other than doing the projectionist thing, which could be really frustrating but was still a good job, I can't think of a job that I had where the positives outweighed the negatives. I've been a:

    Car courier
    Camp counsler for 3-5 year olds
    CVS photo tech
    TV Delivery/stock boy
    Warehouse worker for Newbury Comics (New England-based CD store chain)
    Graphic designer for a suspected pedophile (as posted on the Ask a Gay Guy thread)
    Stock boy/Retail worker for the local ivy league Barnes and Nobles-owned mega-clothing store

    I guess the camp counsler job was ok, but after 4 summers in a row doing it, I got pretty sick of it. Right now I'm doing the job hunt and it's fucking hard without a college degree.


    i just fucking did that. im so bummed out right now......

    fuck working

    i can't wait until i retire. i fucking hate working. its a never ending battle and that drives me crazy. i want closure or to see some sort of end to everything and with work / life there is no such end, until death.

    its frusterating the fuck out of me lately

    Fuck...ever job has it's ups and down's
    I never thought I'd say it, but I miss my old assit. manager job at kinko's. Sure I had to take the blame everytime a customers job wasn't finished on time, but hey. I still made the most of it, I got so much shit for free, it's fucking ridiculous... and beter yet in a college town with plenty of good looking design students and clueless sorority girls.

    I have trouble keeping a positive attitude with my new job....
