    I actually like working. Largely because my various hobbies get expensive and the ultimate reward of a paycheck makes it worth my time. I usually have two jobs at any given point. Both part time, but usually adding up to 60 or so hours a week. Then, there are the hobbies. Right now, its airbrushing, both makeup and paint.

    That's bullshit. People like to do things that are fulfilling, not just simply work. I think people should be doing something, just not under conditions that suck.

    If you think you're above a certain type of work, get a better job. If you can't get a better job, you should probably figure out how to take pride in the job you have.

    I prefer partying to working. I'm the Luis Mendoza of partying.

    People do things they dislike everyday of the week. You think your any better than anyone else?

    What are you qualified to do?

    I actually love the shit out of my job, and often have an, "I can't believe I get paid to do this" attitude toward it. Right now, I teach 24 hours a week - these are "teaching hours", which throughout the world means 45 minutes each. So in reality, I teach 18 full hours a week. However, with preparing lessons, editing texts, preparing websites for my students, and transit time to get from location to location (I teach several students at their homes, so I'm in transit between lessons), I work more than 40 hours a week. I have no qualms with this - I'm out and working for about 8-9 hours a day, I have 8 hours for myself, and then I get 7-8 hours of sleep during the week... and then I have weekends for myself. I hated working when I worked my previous jobs, though - cashier at Target, server at Perkins, a couple pizza places... all shit. But I found what I love doing and while it's hard work and very challenging, it's rewarding enough that I enjoy it. I think that's the key.

    Yeah, nowadays the working class works more than 40 hours a week in the US. Most of my friends and family there work 50-60 hours a week, make less than the average income, and have no time for their families.

Not to mention more and more in the US are converting to atheism. Atheists have not the same work ethics as Christians because they don't think there is a heaven or hell after life. Plus they are socialists who only rely on the state and sits around all day smoking weed.

    This is what you get after four years of Obama, and now the US is doomed with another four years with him. I mean is he really a citizen of the USA? Did they figure out if his birth certificate were real? What the US needs now is someone to bring back the real American values - the ones that made the US the best country in the world today, but which are forsaken by the government.
    You just won my heart. Hard.

    Bighead, you shouldn't think you have it so bad. My work at a grocery store the last two years has led to ligament tears in my wrists and surgical repair on the left over the summer, which led to cubital tunnel syndrome in my elbows and my inability to play guitar anymore, chondromalacia in my knees, and routinely almost getting nailed by cars not using their turn signals at the major intersection across the street. I haven't even mentioned the fact that I cram college, studying, scheduling doctors appointments around the most erratic work schedule ever, and work itself into all this. I have mad evasion skills, so I haven't been vehicle-struck, yet.
    So, before thinking you have it so bad, just remember that there are people out there who are suffering more than just a disdain for working.

    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I get what you're saying, but that's not how being unhappy and unsatisfied works.
    I wrote a four word letter.
