    I am working in that place for a year.

    used to love it,
    but I think I will say goodbye this week.

    What happened 5 years ago?

    And do the owners, or your boss know how you feel?

    19 years??????? at the same place?

    You are my idol.

    I'll be at 26 years this summer. I don't care for my job but I don't hate it and at this point I don't know if I want to start over. So I'll stay as long as they'll have me, or until I move far away.

    I am a nice person,
    love working, because I love my profession
    do not like confrontation,
    and I never complain.

    so i just will quit.

    19, 27, 26 years ???!!

    You guys are amazing.

    However I used to teach in University of Nairobi almost for 10 years, before I moved to America,
    and I was happy,
    because i felt appreciated.

    P-B, Scott, Partyxanimal,

    do you think your bosses appreciate your work?

    Do they know how that place you work will change without you?

    You might as well find a place that makes you happy if you plan on doing your profession for awhile.

    My bosses are awesome. My peers, on the other hand, are a bunch of lazy, stupid weirdos. One flipped out on me yesterday when I requested that she cut back on her morning spray-the-desk-down-with-Lysol-until-everybody-gags ritual.
