An "I hate my job" rant

I am sitting here just thinking, since it is too hot to do anything else. I dread Sunday nights because it means that tomorrow is Monday. And Mondays mean going to work.

I have a job that I truly hate; for a company that I abhorr; working for people who I loathe. The worst thing of all was that it used to be a fun place to work. Then a multi-national conglomerate decided to buy the company and it has sucked ever since.

I am busy looking for a new job, but I have to spend so much time working that it is very difficult to do more than look on-line. The hardest part of all is that I have a somewhat escoteric specialization, so jobs are not exactly dangling from the branches of the local trees.

Every night I wake up sweating from nightmares about work and from all of the pent up stress from working there. I take as much sick time as possible and I do have a vacation pending. But I will spend time on my vacation worrying about work.

The local company is failing miserably and the parent company is allowing it to fail. It would rather have the business relocated to Guadalajara since it's recent adventures in China worked out so poorly and it wants a sweatshop more convenient to it's best customers.

I have volunteered to be laid off several times and each time I have been told I am just too vital to the company....even though I do not want to be there. If they gave me that pink slip and severance check I would be giddy as a school girl.

Anyway, I am sure that many out there feel like this....and I do not have a girlfriend to ease my stress.

what would you absolutely love to do to bring in funds?

Ajob that you would find fulfillment in?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?

How can you make this happen?

Make it happen. If I did it, anyone can.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

start doing a bad job at your job... once you start messing up. sooner or later they will give you that pink slip. Until then though, chin up and enjoy the vacation!

redmartinigirl, unfortunately, there are too many people ahead of me already doing the bad job thing. And they are doing it very well, too, I might add.

Also, I am one of those sort of type A people who expect to succeed and who is driven to do well. Various and sundry individuals where I work use this to their own advantage.
