Work in general tends to be lame. Most of the work I have done in my life has been stuff along the lines of dishwashing, working at gas stations and assorted menial jobs. While I didn't necessarily enjoy these, I never really had a huge problem unless I hated my co-workers... in which case I would quit.
My latest job is working in filing at a law firm. It seemed like a step up: it sounds more respectable and for the most part I don't mop up a bunch of shit. However there is one thing that sets this work way back: time draaaaaags on foreeeeeeever. I sit in front of a computer (something I normally enjoy, when at home with my feet propped up in comfy clothes and my cat on my lap and a glass of wine at hand) and do tedious repetative tasks all day. It's a decent job but it is hell.
I find that I miss doing more physical repetative tasks such as stocking soda in the back of the walk-in fridge, singing stupid songs that I would make up. You can't act like an idiot in a law office, and acting like an idiot is what I do best.
Also is the matter of wearing nice clothing. By nature I am somewhat of a slob. I'm the kind of person who wears the same thing out that I very well might go to bed in. Comfort is paramount in my clothes shopping requirements. I thought I would get used to wearing these uncomfortable button up shirts et cetera, but still after several months I tear off my clothes with joyous abandon as soon as I get home.
Well, I guess I'll stop bitching for now. Shit, only 10 minutes have gone by since last I looked at the clock!
