    But Don't Know What

    I love what I do but don't like where I work.  I have put up with so much politics, backstabbing, and drama that I am exhausted.  It's easy to say I will go somewhere else to work; however it's so hard to walk away.  It's been the only job I've ever known and has...

    It'S Not That Bad

    My job isn't that bad, but I think it could be better. If people in the office are tolerable and work hours are shorter. Also, we're over worked.

    The Pay Is Great, If You Don't Mind Losing Your Soul.

    I actually have a pretty decent job. It pays well and sometimes can be interesting. But it's freaking stressful too. And then there are the egos involved. My industry is full of ego maniacs who think they're God's gift or something. It's not like they're heart surgeons or...

    I'm a Waitress... 'nuff Said.

    Yeah... I work at a Bennigan's. Ever seen the movie 'Waiting'? It's just like that. I'm pursuing a degree in sociology, and hope to go for my master's, but the field is pretty saturated. I hope to land my dream job someday: a counselor at a women's reproductive health center!

    I want a job where I don't have to give

    or take any advise. Just do your work and go home, and turn the work switch off. Then get into family mode, clean the house, have good dinner, romance and sleep. I know it doesn't work this way, but it's there for now.

    At A Loss: The Full-time Frustration
