usually don't feel this way very often, but am today.
how regularly does this paralysing realisation hit you?
It's worse today because I was just interviewed for my own job. And lord knows I fucking hate my job.
I didn't get my own job so I'm not going to working in an office much longer! Hooray!
but I am fairly frequently feeling the same way
you can either take heart from that or give up on life altogether - it's up to you
...where else, other than an office, would you be able to work then?
It's not really the office factor that I'm fussed about though. More the 'where to go from here?' factor.
At least that was the excuse easyJet gave for turning down my trolley dolley application.
I'd like to see the Bristols in Hooters, if you know what I mean.
I'd quite like a gander at some geese, ya get me?
Had a moment staring into the abyss at the weekend too, when I realised someone working 4 days a week as a waitress made significantly more than I do. That was good.
In a dead end office
In a dead end company
I have a resignation typed up and saved on my desktop its been staring at me for about 4 months ...... One day
pinning all our hopes upon getting signed, it could happen, some idiot might sign us
I have failed my younger self. Why do we have to pay to live?
Regardless of location.
I cannot tell you how good it feels.
It might pass.
I suppose its just because I earn more than I did and its a vast improvement from my last job so I'm quite fortunate.
Also, I love routine.
why don't you try and do something about it?
stop being losers
every second of the day
like a screaming clock
feels worst when I've just come back from some time off.
Working on never having to work in an office (with other people) again, which would be great.
My grandad worked down the pit til he was 70, my brother works on the roads from 5am in all weather and my sister works in a burger van. Work to live, not live to work guys!! /> Patronising perosnal anecdotal cliches
been worse the last month after I got turned down for an internal position I should have really got, but I fluffed part of the interview (nerves) and the test. :(
I occasionally daydream about some idyllic job as a gardener or looking after zebras or something for £10k a year but, as much as I like gardening and zebras, I would still resent having to get out of bed each morning and go somewhere because I had to earn money. It's balls.
My job helps me justify working in advertising by telling myself BUT I'M CHANGING THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER!
Today, however, I have been feeling it big style.
Got an e-mail Is there anyway we could do this, but not use our branding?
I typed out the response
Yes, you can go and work for another chairty with a different visual identity.
Saved to drafts
Which they always do, Bammers. Which they a-a-always do.
Which is fortunate.
you can either love staying home with it/them (me) or be glad of the break the office gives you (Mr S)
Stupid babies need the most help of all.
I slightly sabotaged my answers in the assessment bit though cos deep down I didn't wanna work there. What a fucking idiot. What is wrong with me.
by the jobcentre but didnt want to be there. One guy turned up in Wellies which i thought was pretty lol.
