    I recently started work

    as a retail assistant and don't get me wrong I am thankful to be working and off the dole and paying my way into society now but I still hate my job. It's so boring and mind-numbing just scanning and serving, scanning and serving over and over again day in, day out. I hate...

    I work in IT and my job rules my life too much.

    I'm required to be on call a lot and am so sick of it. I miss just having an 8 hour job and coming home and not worry about work. There are days where we are slammed non stop and some nights we are up half or all night working. Then have to go back in the office the very next...

    There Are No Upgrades Available...

    I hate it because you are spending time working

    for money. Money that you then spend. In effect, you are buying and paying with your time. A bus ticket might cost an hour of your life.
