I hate my job, I really hate my job. Come to think of it I’ve never loved any of the jobs I’ve had. I began working at the age of 16, (I’m 32 now) like most teenagers I started off in fast food, and since then I’ve worked in retail, sales, customer service, billing, cleaning and assembly lines. I’ve worked every shift and no matter the time of day I’ve always hated my job.
I hate my job. I like my co-workers. They are in the same hell hole I’m in. We would often trade war stories about how our shift went when the other was not there. We talked about what it was going to be like once we get out of this place and moved on to greener pastures. Sure some of them were pathological liars, and some would have no problem telling me their life story on their first day on the job. This didn’t bother me, this was entertainment, reality without the TV. No I don’t hate my co-workers they are my comrades who have the same disdain for the workplace we shared.
I hate my job. But I don’t hate the work. Its simple enough and sure most jobscould be performed by a well trained monkey, but it never left a bad taste in my mouth. There were times where customers would leave all common sense in the car before they walked into my place of work. No matter how upset they got, I remained calm and helped them the best I could. Afterwards I would laugh about the experience.
I hate my job. I hate my bosses. Not one of them were great. I always ended up working for someone who made a wrong turn in life and was going to make me pay for their mistakes. Someone who envied my youth, who would trade places with me in a New York minute and quit this job if they had the chance. None of my bosses were happy with their position. They often had the same complaints that I did, but never once did anything change. Instead it was the same old rhetoric, “When I was working your job, we had to do way more and got paid way less, so just suck it up and deal with.”
And that’s what I did, until I could not hate my job anymore and moved on to another job I can grow to hate.
