getting a bit sick of working, think it's a bit overrated really
i don't need much really, cut down work, adapt a simple lifestyle, do more exercise, more time for fulfilling activities, easy m8
i'm aware that there are issues with this sample
Which is good money and much better work/life ratio than I have atm ... but only lasts a month and would mean quitting my current job.
Seriously considering it though, a clean slate for January seems appealing.
I have a better job than I did though ... but wouldn't need to move this time. Decisions.
bare minimum otherwise
and anything extra = compensation, then life is good. First six years out of uni (and indeed working through it, so nine years really) were the worst hours for shit pay because magazines. Could never go back to that. Unsure how I even managed 16hr days regularly without losing my mind. Maybe I already have.
Terrible, just don't care.
fucking shite the rest of the time
...I have adjusted mine to full on Chinese.
but i've still got to go in and do it when i'm not? and I still work really well and fast and perfectly. turn up 10-15 minutes late every day though and shrug a lot.
When appropriately incentivised: pretty alright
Apart from the sitting still and concentrating, is that if I go in and work hard it makes no difference. It's running round a mouse wheel. I still get paid, work is still there, nothing changes.
It's not like anything is actually accomolished if I'm diligent and conscientious.
I don't see the fruits of my labours. I'm not sure there are any. It's literally the most pointless endeavour ever to work hard. In an office that is. People who care about their shit munching jobs are idiots.
Then make some massive over the top display of brilliance to dazzle them for another 3 months. Scray how gullible people are.
sometimes i'm a workhorse and other times... well, i'm on DiS aren't I?
as long as I'm not hungover. Or just hungover enough. But not too sober
I mean, fucking hell.
(GORDON HAWKWEATHER switches the lights off in the office and shuts the curtains. Everyone looks around confused; meanwhile, GORDON wheels in a desk thing and then reaches into a suitcase and draws from it a super 8 projector which he sets up on said desk. He directs the super 8 projector towards a blank wall, and then puts a reel in the thingy and presses a button -- a super 8 film is projected onto the wall)
GORDON: Look. Have you seen it? Gangenham Style. It's a tabby cat doing the Gangenham Style.
BERYL: I've seen that one. It is funny.
HERMANN: I haven't seen this one. It is funny though, nonetheless.
(BERYL and HERMANN do a laugh-esque sniff)
Office location move means I work about 80-100 minutes away which pretty much sucks any excitement away. They seem ok at the fact I'll turn up at 9:30 instead of 9 and take a short lunch (preferable - I don't need an hour lunch at all)
However it's paid quite ok and I don't have to do an awful lot. I can listen to music sometimes and I can end up writing/planning features between 9-5 which is ok.
JEREMY HUNT: You have to work proper hard like the Chinese
ROSCOE: What? Are you seriously telling us that we should work harder?
ROSCOE: I'm an adult. Marlon is an adult. How dare you treat us like your pathtic underlings, like we're a television that needs a smack on its side to pick up proper reception. HOW DARE YOU?
MARLON: YES SHUT UP YOU STUPID POLITICS MAN
JEREMY HUNT: But --
ROSCOE: STILL YOUR CHIN, YOU INSUFFERABLE GABBERING SHAFT
JEREMY HUNT: But I am not the politician man. Obviously *he* is an patronising idiot bullshit wanker in telling the work force they need to implement a batshit work ethic in order to appease the gaping, drooling ceaselessly mewling maw of THE ECONOMY ... but I am your manager, the similarly named Jeremy Hunt. I am telling you that you need to work harder, like the good people at the Chinese restaurant adjacent to our office.
MARLON: Nonetheless, I think Roscoe that these criticisms are unwarranted
JEREMY HUNT: I assure you they are not. I hardly ever see you do any work, you mostly just sit around the office in your pants watching Korean music videos.
ROSCOE: Fair dues m8
