I'm Just Like POPEYE!!!!!!!!!!

I've had all that I can take and I can't Take No More!!!!!!!

And even Spinach is not gonna help this time (like it ever did in the first place - YUK!)

But I've had it with this place!

NO - I do not mean this site..lol - - I know we've seen lots of those posts by women.

But I've had it with my job - - the place I've been at for almost 6 years (longer than I've been with any company). I've given up my entire personal life in those years, miss out on all the family things - every birthday and holiday (I might get home a few days before Christmas). When I travel with the job, I work 100+ hours a week, 7 days a week and this can go on for months. And I use to do it because I had a sense of accomplishment, like we were truly helping people in need...and that was enough. But as the years clicked by...and I saw how greedy the company became, then I did my job for the money. The pay is EXCELLENT...more than I could ever imagine making. And I'm thankful for every hard earned penny.

But as I sit here today in the office, I hear and see so much BS that I just can't stand it. People are SO self serving and materialistic, it just makes me want to throw up. As an accountant, I understand that it takes all things and people to make the wheels go round.

I'm just tired of being run over...

I'm just not meant for the big time in my life I guess.... I work great with people and I need to find my calling before I'm too old to do anything about it. If I'm gonna work this hard...I want it to be for ME - - not those who no longer appreciate the people that got them where they are today.

So I might bite my tongue for the rest of the year...need to stockpile the cash flow....but after that - I'm gone....it's time to move on and do something I can be proud of.

Thanks for letting me vent - - since I am at work, I can vent to no one else.....

I just love you Blogland!!! {=}

Go for it! Life is way too short to compromise yourself for a bunch of arseholes. It is far beter to try something else - even if it fails - than to stick with the "safe" option and spend your life regretting it.

I agree ... if you truly feel that way, and this isn't a moments rage over some incident ... do it ... don't chicken out ... and don't let them buy you back with a raise, then they will truly own you ...

Life's too short to be stuck in jobs we hate ...

hmmm ... so what am I doing at this desk?

Oh I never do things without thinking them through - - honestly I've been contemplating it for more than a year. But that dang $$ always keeps me here....and a raise is how they got me to stay 3 years ago - so you are right, they own me.

Well "Nobody puts baby in a corner"....lol - - she'll come out fighting. I've always landed on my feet....

THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! {=}

For once in my life, I will bite my tongue. Oh, man! Maybe I should've bitten my typing hand!

I've seen what you do first hand. I've seen what you put up with, I know the people you work for, and I know how you get overlooked. I can't blame you for feeling the way you do or I'd be a hypocrite because I've felt the same way many times over. (You know why and how. )

Know this: Of anyone in the company, you have MY respect. It may not count for much, and it may not get you a well-deserved raise, but it's there regardless. I stand behind you 110%, my friend!

Muah! {=}

Hi HotTX I know you didn't ask for advice, but I think you should start your own business and do it the way you'd like it. Surround yourself with good people.

HotTXpussy4U replies on 8/22/2006 8:56 am:
And THAT is exactly what I am going to do - - that way I can only hate myself..

And advice from you is always welcomed!!!!! {=}

Hey HotTX. I'm also an accountant in a similar business and I can tell you from experience, changing companies, if done properly, can be a life changing experience (for the better). They are NOT all created equal. I'm in SUCH a better place than I was 5 years ago and my life is so much better. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks for the words of encouragement...I just know something better is out there for me....there just has to be! {=}

Hey, when you titled this, for some reason, I thought that you were gonna turn into a horny toad !

I'm sorry to hear that you're miserable. Although, I've had jobs for as long as 5 months and just couldn't stand it any longer, so I understand your frustration.

I only hope for good things for you...take care and keep a stiff upper lip.
