    You know it's time to quit your job

    when you have to literally drag yourself out of bed in the morning just to show up for work because you have to. But once you're in the office, you can't wait to go home and be done with the week. :(

    I Dislike Being Not Appreciated At All

    I do not hate my job per se.. I hate the fact that there is no structure to my organization and that I am made responsible for duties that were never explicitly or implicitly assigned.. Seems like I am the only one who works at my job.. everyone comes there sits around and...

    It's actually a good job.

    Software consultant. It pays very well. I work from home 3 days a week. But, I can't seem to keep my head in a place of gratitude. When I married my ex wife and had a son on the way, I chose this career because it was relatively lucrative. I worked my *** off for my family...

    I used to like working in retail (as much

    as you can like it) and when I first started my job working for the retailer, it was actually pretty fun. It was busy most of the time because we had big sales going on, causing them to need more employees and risk a chance hiring someone who has no prior work experience (aka...

    Yes, it pays well but so does the misery. It's a thankless job where people would rather point out your mistakes than praise you for doing a job well done. My manager pulled me aside one day and told me she thought I was doing a good job but she said that she couldn't say it in...

    To say I hate my job is a vast understatement.

    This place is absolutely horrible. Worst Machine shop I have ever worked at. Filthy and dingy and dim lit. Machines are ancient and don't work well. The people are the worst I have ever worked for. Constantly whine about things they themselves do. They are all always grumpy...
