Do you like your job?

If not, why? Other people out there must hate their job!


Mine hit a new low. What was a good/interesting job has turned into a nightmare. I swear the manager is bipolar. It runs a dictatorship. I've tried reasoning, arguing, agreeing and now i'm just not bothered.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Do you like your job?

I hate to work. This work is the most tolerable I've had and the pay is good. But man I so much want early retirement.

Being a student bum is sweet. Coming to an end shortly though...

Re: Do you like your job?

I do like my job, it's what I signed for and never has a boring moment, have done things (like having transport adventures) I never thought I would do in Spain but of course there are days on which I just want to strangle everyone and sometimes there's a bit too much stress due to external pressure (the latest lack of gas situation in Argentina for example)

All in all, it's a good thing and the pay is pretty good so I can't complain

I'm a labor law attorney, and yeah - it's interesting, and the pay is okay. I hate the fact it's 12 hours a day.

Re: Do you like your job?

Hate it - wish I could give it up and never have to work again. I only work because I have to, and literally count the hours to all my tennis trips and other holidays Have had many jobs in my life and hated all of them - guess I'm just cut out to be a lady of leisure - but it didn't work out that way.
