    Do you actually wake up everyday and can't wait to get into work? Does this utopia actually exist? If so, how did it happen, by accident? because I find it hard to believe that someone would actually enjoy going into work, I really doubt it and if you do love your job, I call bullshit.

    It's aight. I've had worse, but all things considered I'd rather hit the lottery and quit.

    I work for a music store teaching guitar. Rolaids has stock invested in me. I like/hate it, I don't love/hate it. There is nothing worse than listening to train wreck guitar playing...it is physically painful sometimes.

    I had one girl a couple of weeks ago who, no matter how many times I patiently explained to her what she was doing wrong, would still make the same deadened thunking sound when she attempted to play a note. I went home with my head in my hands and had to drink a bottle and a half of wine to calm down. On the other hand I have a 10 year old who can nail both Samba Pa Ti and Europa by Carlos Santana note for note...such is the yin and yang of it...

    Love my job? No, I would rather be retired and playing golf every day but it is a great job as far as jobs go. They treat me well, I have a short commute, upstairs to my office which is the bonus room over the garage. It is huge, I have a couch, recliner, TV with an xbox and work is relatively easy so I am doing pretty good at Call of Duty MW3 right now. I haven't had to travel in a long time.

    And goat teaching guitar? Mislead, you're better off using rocksmith.

    I hate what i do. with a white hot passion.

    BUT there is no other job i can do that will pay me enough money to pay back my student loans i took to learn how to do this crappy profession. I am stuck for the next 20 years.

    someone wanna shoot me? please?

    Yeah some people don't get it. I heard the same thing when I was a prof. "How can you hate it? You've got it made!"

    No, no.
