I feel the same Taxman.

Tomorrow should not be too taxing, but damn, the hard part is just getting there.

It's all down hill once you get there though.

I loathe Sunday nights.

I'll be in this boat a week from Monday. Taking off two weeks is nice, but going back always sucks.

Going in at 8am sucks, going in at 4pm made it not seem all that bad.

I just spent last Friday in the ER with my fifth kidney stone event...and my THIRD since getting this
job, a few months ago!

My job provides the health care that covers my ER visit and my upcoming appointment with my new
pet urologist, and whatever urology care I will be needing.

The SAME job that is CAUSING my kidney stones is providing for their treatment!


You can well imagine how little enthusiasm I have for my job at this time. I merely manage to make
it through each day as there's no alternative.


I'm going to ask for a demotion. Put me back on the road as a delivery driver, which is where
I started, at least until the summer has passed.


Oh, and by the way...the CT scan I got on Friday during my glorious day out at the ER says that
I have about twenty MORE kidney stones waiting in the wings.


Oh, happy, happy, joy, joy!

Life is what you make it to be.
If you don't try, you won't succeed at anything.




I think I gave up trying when I stopped caring, now Im just looking for a way out.

I'm going back after 5 days off. One of those days off was spent in DC interviewing for a new job, but I'm stuck here waiting to hear about that for at least 2 weeks.

I don't want to go in.

I don't care anymore.

I don't want to be here.

But....I'll prepare as if I have that job lined up and get stuff ready, because people are gonna hate me when I put in my notice.

Ever thought about the military?

How about looking around for work first, finding and interviewing with serious prospects, and then moving if and only if you get a job offer for a better position?

It doesn't have to suck like this.

I'll tell you something more depressing than that. I thought I was going to be able to retire 12 years ago! It really sucks when you're looking forward to it then you can't .... for 12 years and counting!z

Ten years for me and I'm counting down the days.

I love my job, but it's very stressful.

For ten years, you have the spectre of "publish in the top journals, or you will be fired" hanging over your head. .

In about a year and a half, I will find out whether I've published "enough" in the right journals - and I'll either get tenure (employment for life ) or I will be fired .

Worst thing is, all of my colleagues are super-smart!! Research-wise, my department is ranked second in the nation (in terms of publications in the top journals) - and those guys set the bar really high! And they are all really nice guys, so I can't even hate them!



Every day is a work day. In about an hour, I'm going to get back to work.

Taxman, what is it that would make you happy?

What makes you so miserable?

You need a change, and it appears that what you are doing isn't working. There are people that can help you if you only let them.

Ha,ha, I'm doing the same thing. Funny thing is I'm a little nervous. It's funny because the job I resigned from paid fairly well, but was one of the top ten dangerous jobs as far as losing a limb or getting killed. Guy lost his foot on my last day. The good part is it's nice to not work 85-100 hours a week, the bad part is I'm so used to working all the time that I'm bored.

Sounds about like my job except we don't have delivery drivers.

The pay is not great, but it's not really bad. However, they "force" you to have "scheduled overtime" or get fired.

Oh and I work from 1800-0600 Monday-Friday night & then have Sat and Sun off.

Got to love sleping Sat away & then trying to play make up on Sunday

I hate my job
Link Posted: 8/22/2005 6:32:27 AM EDT
For everybody out there that hates their job, you might try doing what I did.

I needed a career change, so I sat down and made a list of everything I liked or was interested in. On this list, I had written guns, cigars, liquor, candy, ice cream, sporting goods, hot tubs, golf clubs, beer, etc. I then went online to every company involved with these different products and sent resumes to them. After many form rejection letters, I received a phone call from the national sales manager of the world's #1 selling brand of hot tubs. After talking to him on the phone, he referred me to his local dealer for an interview. The interview went great and I was given my own store.

I get to come to work at 10:00, surf the internet, sell a couple of spas, drink beer with the boss, and go on a couple of really nice trips each year. The pay is great and I get 4 weeks vacation per year.

Moral of the story, it never hurts to take a chance on doing something you like. I can't wait to get to work each and every day. Good luck to all!
