    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.

    This weekend is a "I Get Paid Too Little For

    This ****" weekend. My F-time job owns me 48 hours this week and my P-time owns me for another 30. Thank God! I'm not working 80 hours this week. That would be a travesty! No. 78 hours sounds Sooo much easier. But, then again, I'm not in the group that doesn't have a job. That...

    I just need to vent! My job is getting the best

    of me. I have had it having to work overtime so much lately. I know I should be thankful I have a job and not complain but this is getting old quick. If I had the chance to do it over again I would choose a different line of work.

    And today, on Saturday, where I should not work at all, I had two emergencies at once on different places! Already in the night I got so many phone calls that I almost didnยดt sleep, and in the morning I woke up from another phone call. I almost was not able to open my eyes, but...

    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.

    Anymore coming to work is

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
