    I hate work. Work occupies far too much of my time. This thread is about how much I hate work. You can join if you want.

    I have two service leads. One is empathetic and tries to understand. The other gets leadership advice from Instagram and has the relative intelligence of a baked potato. The one directly over me is the potato.

        I've hated work since way back. But only recently have I considered stopping all together.

          This might be the first thread in years where there is no fighting!

            Retail is a special purgatory.

              My employer is in the process of dumb-sizing our area through attrition. No positions are being filled after people leave of their own accord, but our work load stays the same for now. It’s crushing many people’s spirits, and all the people leaving are the talented people. On my team alone, only one person aside from the manager is interested in staying.

              All of us at Bigger Bank, N.A. hate work.

                After my department at the college hired someone else besides me to get a tenure track job (the third time I have been turned down and the last time I likely apply because screw that noise) my loyalty and desire to continue working there has crapped the bed. Convenient schedule and pay was really the only reason to stick around. Well post Pandemic enrollment is still way down and now since they hired a full time teacher they have priority. They have to teach a minimum number of classes before any of us adjuncts can get any which means it is even money I wont get enough credits to make working there worthwhile anymore. (or at least prioritize it) My second job, catered bartending, probably won't be active until late Fall or most likely early 2022 so stress is at an all time high. Oh did I mention we just did a massive kitchen remodel?

                Needless to say WORK FUCKING SUCKS!

                  I don’t know if my hair falling is from covid or work.

                  it’s like a competition to see how many people can leave. I keep getting stuff piled on me.

                  im too broken at moment to look for a new job, I’m too tired

                    I like work. After 33 years in business I guess I'd have to or I'd have gone bankrupt.

                      Managers and owner-operators need not apply.

                          My work just notified us that we'll all be back at the office by September. This flies in the face of every communication since the pandemic began, which was that working remotely would now be the norm. So, yay. Go work.

                            We are back in the office come the Tuesday after Labor Day. It could be delayed, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

                              I give my employer the exact same thing they give me, just barely enough to disincentivize looking elsewhere.
