I Work Too Much

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 365 People

    I work from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through

    Saturday, with a day off every other week. I get on lunch break unless business is slow, nor any other scheduled breaks. I have a $400 weekly salary, and live and work in a metropolitan hub. No, I don't think all my rights as an employee are being acknowledged, and no, I don't...

    Don't get me wrong I'm blessed

    that I have a good paying job. I always have benefits, but the issue is the hours. By that I mean the time of day I work. Sometimes I wish I worked 9-5 so I could get more things done on the weekdays. But I work 1-9 which leaves little to no room to run errands and handle things...

    How to Fix My Work Issues?

    I've worked at the same place for 13 years.  They rely on me so much.  And I feel like it's my "home" -- I have such a strong connection to the place.  But it consumes so much of my time -- I work at least 1/4 of the weekends every year and I just can't...

    Entirely Too Much

    I work 80hrs some weeks. I work 6 days a week and often only have 1 day month off. It's not money as much as it is something to do. I make plenty of money and can survive off of only a couple days a week. I work too much and have nothing to show for it.

    I can see the workplace from my bedroom window

    so the nights I don't work I go over to randomly help out and my colleagues come my house most nights for a post-work drink. I can't leave it alone.

    The Work Hangover...

    The Work Hangover, the worst kind of hangover. Terrible because at no point in the preceding twelve hours was there any fun to be had. But it doesn't stop there. You fall out of bed in the morning and stumble, bleary eyed down the stairs. You negotiate the obstacle course of...

    And it feels like life is passing me by.

    I aspire to change this drastically in 2-3 months. It's going to happen. It needs to happen. Life isn't all about money. If anything **** money go live in caves and trees hunt off the land!!! Like nature intended. Jk not really... but seriously though I work too much.

    Easier Than Being Home

    I tend to stay at work as much as possible....I control what happens there, for the most part, and it is easier than being home alone.

    I really need to find a new job I work 15 hour

    days, I work six days a week and never hear anything positive. I have taken a failing branch and in less than 6 months made it profitable and still only hear negatives. My work life balance is 94/6 and I am not even appreciated at work.

    Our men's urinals at work have a red laser

    such a task in itself... I loved my job and then it changed. I'm good at what I do but it takes a team to be a successful whole. So when your team is beat down, worn out, unappreciated... Heh... Well you get it! Why am I here again? Oh yeah the paycheck... Yip it has come to...
