    Did I Waste 4 Years In College And $30,000 To Get A Receptionist Job?

    I didn't start college until I was 25. My parents had a good income but they blew it all on garbage, so I didn't qualify for many grants, but they didn't help me out so I had to wait until their income no longer counted against me when it came to loans and grants. I worked all...

    My job is just unbelievable.

    I'll try to sum it up by telling you about the folks I work with: First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and...

    I Hate Office Jobs!!!

    I am really glad I do work at an office job. This has opened my eyes as to what type of job I DON'T want, and it's working in an office and sitting inside a cubicle. I don't know about you but, I am so tired of sitting up in a cubicle, pretending to work when I finish my work...

    I am a laundry girl at a hotel

    Every Single Thing About It

    I am embarrassed by what I do - when people ask me I lie. I hate the company I work for - there is nothing about it that I respect. I work my arse off to make money for the investors in the company and there is no return to society by them. I will leave as soon as i can find...
