    Please share.

    I'm happy to have a job, let's start with that, but it's not exactly my dream career or an awesome work environment. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either.

    Let's put it this way: I'm eligible for my pension in 294 days.

    This.

    If we were happy then it wouldn't be called a "job."

    You actually think you'll be seeing all of that pension? You'll be working until the day you die.:cwl:

    You will be working until your dad sells the store.

    How the fuck do you know he won't get his pension?

    He might if he works for a private company but not if he's in a public union. Politicians have promised outrageous pensions and benefits for gov't employees that are unsustainable. Gov't union contracts are gonna have to be renegotiated sooner or later.

    Agree with this. I'm happy to be working, but I wonder if it's worth it anymore.

    Yeah, I am aware of that...but, you shot your mouth off, assuming you know his situation; just like a liberal.

    Also, what are you going to do when your dad gets out of the sucking machine business?

    I work at a startup, so the slave like working hours are expected. However, I'm at the point where I'm going to choke someone if I can't hire a few people to take care of the detailed work. Once that happens my professional life will be a noine.

    I dislike my job in that I would much prefer to have a shitton of money without doing anything for it so I don't have to work at all.

    This job is acceptable enough to get me through until I win the lottery.

    I'm probably one of the few that likes their job. It's interesting and pays pretty good. Like any job, It has its bad moments, but the benefits outweigh the bad times by far. I only wish I could have started a career in this field earlier on in life.
