    I Ain't Curing Cancer

    I am a retail manager and I honestly feel its the most ridiculous job on the planet. I am not curing cancer, feeding the hunger or finding loving homes for orphaned children. I deal with pompous, arrogant gluttonous idiots for 55-60 hrs a week instad of doing something...

    For Real.

    I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why the present business model of various corporations and businesses- in both the private and public sector- sucks so badly. I am further confused as to why those of us at the lower levels of the ladder can see easy and painless fixes...

    I didn't always hate working at Shane's Rib

    Shack but lately it's been hell. Suddenly there is so much favoritism to too employees by one manager. This manager argues and talks **** towards everyone and is a complete ***** even if you're not involved with what drama she's got going on. Like my main friend there has been...

    Ever Get Gas For Your Car? Remember This...

    There Are No Upgrades Available...

    I work for a very famous airline, which shall remain nameless, and I am a frontline customer service agent - a gate agent. I can't stand my job sometimes mostly because of frequent flyers and their sense of entitlement no matter what the circumstances. Now don't get me wrong, I...

    I hate my job. I didn't always hate it,

    but I do now and with a passion. The thing is, I really wanted this job....BAD! When I started here I worked one day a week, four hours. That's how bad I wanted to work here. I did that for FIVE years. I work in a public library, just so you know. Finally a position within...

    So I've only worked for this company

    for about a month and a half if even that. I am a full time college student so my schedule does change some. Today marked the third day in the last two weeks that I was told I would get a call concerning the schedule and did not receive that call. I like about 45 minutes away...

    Worth More

    I have been at the same job for a year and a half. I took it as a temporary job until I found something better and ended up staying. I knew when I took the job I was overqualified. I also knew that I was worth way more than what I was being paid. Apparently, my boss saw that I...

    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...

    I am nearly at a breaking point.

    I have a very well paying job and a very good position but it's mind numbingly boring and monotonous. I have nothing else to fall back on and can't afford to start over. My only solace is music but I can't seem to turn it up loud enough to drown out my creative mind calling me...

    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.

    This is one of the most obnoxious things someone can do. I say something and it's either "Oh, I've had it worse" or "I've had it better". It's not always about you.
