    I Dislike Being Not Appreciated At All

    I don't like who I am

    as a person right now. My work situation has me so stressed that I think about walking out everyday. I have nightmares about it and when I am there I at times feel like I can't breathe and at times cry. Work is making me into this person whom I don't like. I am negative, I...

    I really don't like to complain.

    The more I complain the worse my problem seems to get. But right now I ******* hate my job. My boss is an *******. His boss is an *******. Work is slow so I'm bored and if I make a mistake god forbid! I'm new in this industry. I'm new at this job. Making a mistake is common. Don...

    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 my job more every week.

    I just want to be done with this and spend most of my time in nature. The more time I spend in forests, and the more I learn survival skills, the less bearable industrialized society becomes. I feel like shards of myself are flaking away and embedding in trees and rivers, where...

    I Dread Going In Everyday..

    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...

    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...
