    I'm Frustrated

    It's not that I don't like what I do but twice this week I've had two long term clients tell me "We love you, your personal service, your creativity, your attention  to detail,  yada yada yada, but we had to go with another supplier because they were cheaper! Yikes...

    I Guess Somethings Never Change

    When I wrote this statement, I was working at a different job...waiting tables as a matter of fact.  Then I got a SECOND job to try to wean myself out of the first one.  Well, that worked. NOW, I don't want to be there.  I think there comes a point when you have to...

    Everything Is Just Not Right

    - I've been passed over for a promotion for some one with less seniority and a worse work record. - I've been harrassed by other workers in front of customers for petty issues such as using a workstation they had been using while they were off to lunch. - Gossip is rampant...

    Just... Stuck

    Like many of you, the recent economic downturn has put my aspiring career out of its misery. I had left my family's business to work as an account coordinator with a "growing" distribution and fulfillment company. Over my two years there, I ended up managing the call...

    Fed Up of Working

    Ever since the age of 14 I've been working.  I am now 52 and I'm fed up! Some day I would like to wake up and ask myself what to do! Today in my country it is Thanksgiving and although I have much to be greatful for, still I crave for a change.

    I'm 55 and have been working since I was 10.  I am grateful to have a very good job, like what I do, enjoy my co-workers, and work in a good environment.  Unless I win the Lottery, this is it!!!  However, with what I lost recently in retirement funds, realistically...

    I Don't Want To Work Anymore... It's Worthless

    Don't judge me wrong. I'm not lazy or waiting for handouts. The reasons why I don't want to work anymore besides the health burden it carries its because a lot of things have changed over the years. I thought that if you work hard like show up on time and do what they told...

    What Is A Job Anymore?

    I have tried several jobs, which either pay too little, have way too many constraints and politics, or simply consist of dredging out a daily living through the service supplied (whether needed or simply the latest fad). I am pretty much done with that. I worked in Columbus...
