Anyone here felt completely done with the current type of work they do to the point where you just said screw it, took a pay cut(start all over again), start a new type of work and feel completely liberated even though you now make less and have to start over again on the totum pole?

That's pretty much where I'm at.
I'm currently looking to get into the local phone utility company and ditch the computer consulting business that I've been in for 10 years.

I make good money now but I just can't even stand doing my job for 8 hours a day anymore.

I want stability. I want a job that I don't have to learn 5 new things everyday only to find the things I just mastered are being replaced with even newer stuff.

I just can't see myself doing what I'm doing for 20-30 more years.

I just turned 27 and I feel that if I don't get out now, I'll be almost stuck.
Having a house and family binds me to money and turn a job where I feel like I'm in prison.

No more.

Ummmm ya.

Wouldn't want to always shave like a girl though.

How someone could be comfortable while their balls are showing is beyond me.

That's the way it is in the IT industry. There is more BS in IT that just about any industry and it seems to be a collecting ground for some of the most pompous ASS HOLES on the face of this earth.

I agree.
I think that's why I've lasted so long.
I'm sure there is alot of IT guys out there that now moe then me, but more of often then not these same guys have HORRIBLE people skills and acted like children at times.

For example, my newest customer is a medium sized company and their 45 YO admin acts like a 12 YO child.
