[This was written back in July when I was actually at a terrible job. I am currently at a WAYYYY better company (yay!), so if anyone from my work is reading this, please don’t get me fired]
When I say stuff like, “Oh, I’m ugly” or “I am fat,” you shouldn’t take me seriously because in reality, this is how I view myself:
However, when I say that I have a crappy job that eats away at my soul, please take me seriously because I mean it.
But there are upsides to everything, and so here are some things I enjoy about having a job that I hate with all of my heart.
Not feeling guilty about leaving on time
When I used to be a teacher, I never left on time. I wanted to stay late even though nobody made me because that’s what I wanted to do and it was an important job. I always wanted to give 200% to my work.
Wearing whatever I want
Having a shitty job is like dating a guy you know you’re not gonna marry. Hey, if I wanted to meet your parents, I would dress like a nun-turned-teacher.
So when my manger keeps telling me to wear a blazer to meetings (“you have to look like a professional”), I ignore her. I can’t afford to buy a blazer when the company pays me two potatoes an hour.
Accidentally doing a good job
And feeling super awkward about it. But hey, I will accept the compliment.
Using all the vacations days
…because I will not be staying at the company for long anyway. Saving the days for the future? What future? There is no future here.
I know complain about work all the time, but I am feeling optimistic! The glass is always half full!
Just kidding. I feel like crap. But you know what? I am a firm believer in this: you get what you deserve.
And I am getting exactly what I deserve for majoring in English literature and dropping out of law school.
Please give me a hug. And a dollar. And a better job.
